    ICG grading success or failure?

    Another coin I sent off in the same batch as my other Britannia coins was this 1998. 1998 is the first year of issue for the Britannia silver coins in the business strike or "mint state" version, a year after the introduction of the proof version in 1997. This is not one of the rarer dates in terms of mintages, but it is desirable as a first year of issue in a series. I bought it on eBay for a decent price, but had no idea what the results would be for a cross grade. As with the other coins in the submission, this coin was sent in for the modern tier NCS/NGC conservation and grading combination. This costs $28 as of this submission, but with the shipping cost, insurance, submission fee, this coin cost a little over $30 to grade. This is not a true "crossover" as it is not a PCGS slab, but NGC will remove a coin from an ICG slab if the waiver is signed with the submission. This coin, as you can see from the photos, came back an MS 68 in an NGC holder. the 1998 does have a population of 3 in MS 70 on the NGC census and a fair few in MS 69. I believe the MS 68 is a result of a stain near the queen's effigy in the field near the back of her head. It looks like a drop of water hit the coin, evaporated, and left a ring like you would see on a coffee table. It is very small and not that noticeable, but it could of course knock a coin down a grade. One thing to note about this, the ICG slab designated this coin as DCAM for deep cameo. This is not one of the coins that is recognized as having cameo with NGC because the fields are matte and the design is reflective. I've noticed on modern reverse proofs they also don't get a cameo designation. As with the other coins the original label was sent back to be in the flip used during the grading process, but unlike the other ones this flip had two NGC stickers on it. It isn't easy to see, but beneath the second sticker there is a SMS on the original label that NGC used. SMS is an acronym for Special Mint Strike that is usually given to US coins that aren't proof coins, aren't business strike coins, but have a nice matte finish on them like this coin. Again, this doesn't add any value to the coin, but it was interesting to see the process that NGC first assigned the wrong designation - probably because of the ICG label showing the DCAM designation - and then at some point a grader or conservationist corrected it. Well SIlver Forum, what do you think about this coin, is it a grading success or failure?

    2010 Britannia in ANACS holders - now NGC

    Continuing with my submission to NGC, I submitted two 2010 Britannia Silver 1 ounce coins that were holdered in ANACS MS 70 slabs. These coins were submitted as modern conservation, a tier that combines the conservation and grading costs to $28 total, and NGC will remove the coin from the holder, but will not honor them as a cross-grade like PCGS holders. I've received them back in the NGC holders, and have photos posted below. I was pleasantly surprised that one came back an MS 70 in the NGC holder as popular opinion is that these come back a grade lower. Even the MS 69 is a victory to me considering the price I paid for that coin. Total, the MS 69 cost me a little over $67 which includes the grading fees. I highly doubt I could get an NGC graded MS 69 2010 on an auction website or from another collector for that price. I'm hesitant to think there is an advantage in buying ANACS coins and then submitting them for NGC grades, since I have other examples I will post that didn't turn out as well. However, a good deal on a coin is a good deal regardless of the holder it seems. Side note! I really like how NGC sends back the original ANACS label in a flip as well. It is not worth anything necessarily, and I doubt it matters to most people, but I really enjoy seeing the "history" of that specific coin from probably a raw coin to an ANACS holder and on to an NGC one now in my possession. Silver Forum members let me know what you think!

    Sent off some coins to NGC (Part 2)

    Well the coins finally came back today! I was very excited to sign for and open this box from NGC and I will post the remaining successes and disappointments from this submission in the coming weeks as there are "themes" to my submission. I posted last week about two coins I really enjoy having in my collection and showed images of them - as purchased - in their ANACS yellow holders. See the link embedded in this topic. The first was a 2013 50P SS Gairsoppa Britannia coin which was graded MS 67 and the second was a 2014 50P SS Gairsoppa Britannia graded MS 69. Some mentioned the ANACS grades tend to come in one step lower (I would expect an MS 66 and MS 68 respectively) when submitted to NGC. I'm very pleased that this was not the case with these coins! The 2013 came back an MS 68 DPL - a full grade above the ANACS holder and with the Deep Proof Like designation. The 2014 came back an MS 69 same as it went in and also with the desirable DPL designation. Aside from the grading results making me very pleased with my original purchase, I wanted to post that I submitted these as NCS/NGC combined modern tier coins. They are conserved and graded in this selection for the price of $28 each. Another added benefit...the NGC holders allow me to better see the edge of the coin showing off their thickness (reminds me of a chunky silver pound coin) and the edge lettering with the shipwreck's name. Enjoy the photos!

    Sent off some coins to NGC (part 1)

    A few weeks ago I put together a package to submit coins to NGC. I haven't received the coins back, but I have checked the status and see the coins have been finalized and graded. Below are two of the coins I sent in. One 2013 1/4 ounce silver Britannia and one 2014 1/4 ounce silver Britannia. What's unique about these coins other than their small size and limited mintage is that they are made with silver from a famous shipwreck, the SS Gairsoppa. There's edge lettering on the coins indicating this. I was hesitant to purchase these coins at first since they're in ANACS holders and I trust NGC and PCGS grades a bit more. However, I love the Britannia coins and these were so different and unique that I was drawn to them. I would be curious what forum members think will happen grade wise to these coins. Thoughts on ANACS? These coins and how they'll grade? Or, what about these coins in general, something forum members like? Thanks!
  5. Selling this 2017 Proof Nautical Ounce, one of a population of only 7 graded PF70UC with the First Releases Designation by NGC. 1,000 piece total mintage. Original COA is also included and will mail with the coin. Asking $385, open to offers, just send me a message. Will ship free in the USA, willing to ship overseas as well, just ask. Thanks for looking and have a nice night
  6. If anyone is interested I have TWO NGC MS70 1/4 oz GOLD GRIFFINS for sale. Population is 16 Also I have FOUR NGC MS70 1/4 oz GOLD LION OF ENGLAND for sale also. Population is 57 They are VERY DIFFICULT to come by. Let me know if interested.
  7. Has anyone on the forum picked one of these up or seen them floating around on eBay or other websites? They are sold out at Modern Coin Mart, see the link below. I completely missed it! It seems the Royal Mint are continuing with a tradition started in 2015 of having multiple Britannias available per year. This is the 3rd type as far as I can tell. For 2018 there are the textured background silver Britannia coins known as the "radial sunburst" coins and designated as such on NGC labels, the Oriental Border coins, and now this plain fields coin which is simply listed as a DPL on the NGC label. Limited mintage as far as I know and they are still available raw from the Royal Mint last I checked. Let me know your thoughts! https://www.moderncoinmart.com/2018-great-britain-1-oz-silver-britannia-2-coin-scarce-and-unique-coin-division-ngc-ms70-dpl-fdi.html

    NGC Grading

    Hi Guys, Just wondering if anyone sent coins for grading with ngc have 2 coins i would like to get graded Morgan Dollar, Irish halfcrown. It wouldnt make much sense for me to sign up for ngs and postage etc, so just wondering if i could send mine with someone else trusted and i would be willing to share the cost of postage and obviously pay for my own grading of coins. Cheers Aero
  9. Because they are in NGC holders it is very difficult to get a photo, but I was looking at some of my British 2 Pound non-PM coins I have and I noticed the edge lettering on the coins usually faces down away from the Queen's bust. I have a WWI Aviation coin from an annual coin set slabbed in an NGC holder that has the edge lettering facing up towards the Queen's bust. To put it another way, on the standard coins when the Queen's head is facing me and I tilt the coin to look at the edge lettering it is readable. The coin in question in this same position shows the letters upside down. The inscription is "The Sky Rained Heroes". Does anyone else have errors like this? The NGC label doesn't show it as an error coin, but I think maybe whoever sent it in for grading didn't realize it was an error themselves. I've seen a few comments online about some coins having edge lettering upside down, but couldn't find any information on this particular coin. In the picture below one can see the EROES of the word HEROES clearly facing the Queen's head side of the coin, which is not the way the other coins have the letters oriented.
  10. Have any silver forum members purchased or seen one of these in the Early Release Black Core holders? I have the Unicorn of Scotland and Lion of England in these Early Release holders which I believe are special from Modern Coin Mart, but haven't seen the Red Dragon of Wales available. I'm fearful I may have missed the opportunity! If anyone has one for sale I'm interested!
  11. Does anyone collect the non-precious metal 2 pound coins in the UK? If so, do you use a coin book? The annual or definitive sets released by the Royal Mint? Graded and slabbed versions? I've got a few now - the 2015 reintroduction of the Britannia portrait both in circulated condition and from the definitive coin set slabbed, the WWI aviation definitive coin set slabbed, and am very excited for the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus (Frankenstein!) coin this year. I love the Kew Gardens 50 pence and the Sir Isaac Newton of the same denomination, but only have the latter slabbed by NGC. Photos below are mine and of my coins.
  12. Hey to everyone, I've got one ruanda lunar rooster in gold ms70, in silver pf70, dog in gold ms70 and silver pf 70, also swan in gold ms70 and silver pf69 (NGC) What do you think can i get for it?

  13. Hi, this is my first thread and first coin-related video. I have been lurking on this forum but not really contributing! I have just "completed" my collection of one of each European circulating gold coin in the ~20 Franc size from the pre-WW1 era. I have been inspired by Numistacker. [

    Hello would someone help me please?

    Hello my name is Percy Cateriano, I'm 23 years old and live un Peru (South America). I started collecting coins about 3 and a half years ago and really enjoy doing it. My collection is still pretty small, just about 13 silver coins. I have both a 10 yuan silver Panda (2012) and a 2016 MS-69 Britannia from NGC. I Also have a domestic collection of very beautiful (i think haha) proof silver coins minted from the Peruvian Central Bank as a part of the Iberoamerican Series (1991 - Present) but unfortunately here there are no graduating companies so if someone could help me and give me some advice about how to submit my coins to NGC (I don't wanna become a member of NGC because I have so few coins and I've never done a submition before). Thanks for your help. I'll post some photos of my small collection.

    Cracking Coins out of Slabs

    Hello Silver Forum, I'm relatively new to the Forum, but have been a long-time viewer of Numistacker's videos and a coin collector for years. Most of my collection consists of raw coins, but I've taken a liking to graded examples. My question to you all would be, how do you go about cracking coins out of slabs (like an ICG or ANACS slab) to prepare for submission to NGC or PCGS? There are videos on YouTube showing people crack NGC slabs or even PCGS, but none on the lesser known third-party-graders. Thank you all!

    NGC Storage solutions

    I've now got several NGC slabs in the corner of a drawer that I have just got out of storage. Is there a storage box that will hold several slabs safely? Not looking for anything fancy just something to keep the slabs together.
  18. Each year NGC awards set registry prizes for the best or most complete set within lots of categories. Each grade is allocated a number of points and you enter slabbed coins only into the NGC database and the system shows the total number of points. I am about 50-60% complete but that was still enough to win. http://coins.www.collectors-society.com/registry/coins/public_sets.aspx?CategoryID=126&SetTypeID=2319&sets=world Video will be made in due course.
