Should see this coin in a couple of days but looked up the PCGS cert pic.

It looks promising and nicer than the eBay pic.

Not knowing those coins and just looking at it as any other coin I would never have guessed it would make MS62   Looks to be a lot of rubbing/wear on the fields and the dies must have been worn or poorly made.

There are type 2 coins where you can barely read the year that make 63 to 65.

Here is the grading guide for 62

I think PCGS correctly graded it.

Some US pickups, some from MCM (silver slabs and QB griffns), Choice Bullion (fractional gold 1/10, 1/20 Libertads), Son Montuno and Coin Shoppe (silver Libertads proofs) and and some today from my favourite coin shop in CA - Oxbridge Coins in San Francisco (quarter eagle and the 1967 sov). 

Unluckily though some of my other orders got delayed and will have to rest in the US until my next trip - so I will post those when I get them! 

Pleased with the gold Eagle quarter (my first), - and I love the detail on the MS70 Dragon & Phoenix. Also my first ever silver Panda...probably will not be collecting them though.

+25oz, Kooks, Koalas, Pandas, & Brits.

A bit disappointed I didn't pull the trigger last week as everything is more expensive now!

Someone really wanted it and as a consequence I probably overpaid but it might surprise on grading.

£1200? that's ok, they go for really good money when graded over 61 these days. There are fakes around though, hopefully NGC would pick them up.

should grade up 62 - 63 IMO but looks to be a nasty mark on the horse.

I did see it when it was only £700 and it certainly caught my eye.

If I can get 62 I will be extremely pleased. But pics can disguise anything. I really wanted it at £700 lol and £1200 is a lot to pay for a potential problem coin.

I think if the coin is as good as the pictures and is genuine, I think it was a great buy  @Numistacker and would go as far as saying you got it at a good price, I think in the future only top end sovereigns will increase in value and coins that are not quite perfect will lose value. As with stamps, coin collecting is now falling out of fashion, only top grades will increase in value. I really look forward to watching the story of this coin, As I'm sure you will send it for grading. I hope its a winner for you.

It's worth buying just for the story and the lesson. I have noticed big interest in older sovereigns and when they come up and quality is good there seems to be more buyers than later sovereigns.

I guess there are lots of collectors who would like a reasonable full type set.

Top end coins have far outstripped their lesser counterparts since the stockmarket crash in 2008, i'd include sovereigns in that list. I've also not seen a lack of interest in coin collectors, this can be seen in auctions when the prices far outreach what in theory should be paid, most of the top auction houses always attract a good following, just look at Heritage for instance in the USA, 9 times out of 10 their coins go for some eye watering prices.

I don't follow stamps, being a coin geek is enough, the wife would divorce me :ph34r:
