    We all know that some people like "errors" whatever they are and are happy to bend reality to suit their fantasies.
    In other cases like this where the RM has admitted an error and asked purchasers to return the error coin/coa etc for a replacement eg the 1994 mule £2, it has been impossible to know how many of the errors remained in the wild. Therefore they have been assumed to be rare and developed an aura of mystery and value.
    I think it is irrelevant what any TP service grade them as. They are officially a BU coin and as NGC or PCGS grade the coin not the COA, they should be given that designation. They do not grade the COA or even see them.
    I don't think it will make much difference to the value whatever the COA says but personally I would keep the error just in case some misguided person is willing to pay a premium for a coin with an "error" COA. I don't think it would ever lower the value so you can't lose.

    Walk in......walk out. PR70 Deep Cameo 500th Anniversary 1989 £2 Double Sovereign. Population 5.
    1/2, full and double in the collection now. I must say, I think the double shows off the design so much better and has tremendous eye appeal. Of its type, this is as good as it gets. fyi, pcgs uses deep cameo and ngc uses ultra cameo, so in that sense there is a total population of 27 (ngc 22 ultra cameo/pcgs 5 deep cameo)

    Unbelievably and without any email notifying me the 5 sov and sotd had been despatched, and these literally walked in the door just now. Incredible.
    I took lots of photos for you. All three boxes in immaculate condition. Not a bent corner, tear, rip or any problem. The capsules were all a miniscule amount (like about 3 mm) off being absolutely screwed in but that I expect to happen in transit which is why I sent mails in capitals demanding the capsules etc be given special attention.

    A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a cow from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the cow the next day.

    The next day the farmer drove up and said: Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The cow died.

    Kenny replied, Well then, just give me my money back.

    The farmer said, Cant do that. I went and spent it already.

    Kenny said, OK, then just unload the cow.

    The farmer asked, What ya gonna do with her?

    Kenny: Im going to raffle her off.

    Farmer: You cant raffle off a dead cow!

    Kenny: Sure I can. Watch me. I just wont tell anybody she is dead.

    A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, What happened with that dead cow?

    Kenny: I raffled her off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $998.00.

    Farmer: Didnt anyone complain?

    Kenny: Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.

    Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron
