    Finally decided to buy the 2017 Britannia 6-coin set (aka the most hated Britannia design). It certainly is growing on me though and I think it is one of the most memorable Britannia. The smallest coin is really tiny, NGC has to use a capsule to secure it in regular holders.

    ZatStackz reacted to Numistacker in Buying Proof Coins For Grading.   
    Modern proofs should be flawless but are often not so. Sovereigns tend to have better QA than some commemorative coins anecdotally.
    With NGC modern mint coins (last 5 years or so) will get 70 more often but there are lots of 69's given and perhaps 7.5% 68s. Many people force conserve before grading as even a tiny fleck or handling mark can get a 69 or below. Conserving improves the chance of a 70 but does not guarantee a 70 as many coins get sent that are at the outer part of the bell curve and should really have been returned to the mint or re-minted.
    What actions can maximise the chance of a 70...?
    a) buy a 70 from mostly a USA modern coin dealer - sometimes RM fo a run of 150 or so first releases coins
    b) Buy a proof from RM and keep returning till its perfect - risky with a sell out coin.
    c) Use a dealer like Coin Connection to double the QA of the mint and supply as far as possible a perfect coin
    d) Conserve with NCS before grading yourself
    e) Grade normally your regular mint coin and if it gets a 68 or 69 sell and buy another and grade that
    f) Buy a 68/69 cheaply from a poor sap and resubmit it for conservation and grading. Economical due to the discount on RM price for bad graded coins.
    Many 68's get cracked out and put back in the original packaging and sold on ebay. Some of those get bought by members here and re-submitted where they can get 68/69 again if unlucky.
    Grading is subjective and there is no magic way to achieve the top grade. They will never give lots of MS queens beasts or 1989 1 SOV's the magic 70. Early MS Pandas almost never get 70. Lots of Perth Mint coins get 70.  A 70 is ONLY good if nobody gets one remember that if everything gets a 70 the 70 is standard. 
    When you see a coin on the forum marked up by £500 over RM price and its a 70 - stop and think... Do they all get 70's? Would i be much better submitting my own?

    ZatStackz got a reaction from Serendipity in Tubes for gold sovereigns in capsules??   
    Do you already have them in capsules. If not, then air-tite A22 with the size A tube.

    I really like the Modern Tribute collection.  2 oz high relief rounds of various american coins.  The detail, high relief and texturing is really nice.


     
     
    Also more Cryptozoology rounds for my set and some antiqued Spartan Rounds (Molon Labe).  The werewolf round is really nice in person with high relief.
    The antiquing is not the best. Probably because the coins have so much detail, maybe its hard to get in all the crevices.

    ZatStackz reacted to Murph in Grading coins:   
    Do you mean the actual grades or coin grading companies that grade and encapsulate coins for a fee?
    Here's Chard's guide but it's more complicated than they make it seem with different coins being graded differently even though they may look to be worn by the same amount.  There are books on grading coins.
