    The color in these pics
    Is PCGS so inept that they wouldn't have noted it was struck on a 90% silver blank? They find other oddities that get sent to them that are not noted by the submitter.

    Good advice was given by good people and our resident error specialist. I'm no moderator but it's really time to end entertaining this issue after 7 pages and no decent results. Que Sera, Sera. Just sayin'.

    Yes. Too bad it came from CNN.

    I was ONLY becoming "disinterested" until I read the post that the "envious" came out of . . . my disinterest has now become suspicious. Of course, I'm reading this nearly 24 hours after the fact. Maybe I should go to the last page of posts and see if that conclusion has already been reached.

    All SMS coins were made in San Francisco. San Francisco never struck any silver dimes between 1955 and 1992 so there would be no place for a silver planchet to come from. I would bet that if you were to find another high grade clad dime, from any year, in the same style/generation holder it will also appear to have a "silver" edge. The ONLY way you are going to dedtermine if the coin is silver without cracking it out is going to be with an XRF gun. And frankly as long as it is in that holder you are going to have GREAT difficulty getting anyone to accept it as being silver because 99+% of people are going to take one look at the holder and just accept what the label says. Like was mentioned earlier, a great claim requires great proof.

    Well at least we know it couldn't have come from FOX; they've made it abundantly clear for some time that the don't know the difference between Apples and Bananas . . . come to think of it, you could probably throw a Carrot in the mix and they'd still be clueless!

    Lets leave non-coin companies out of the discussion.
  11. You were right, there is a rubber gasket inside the PCGS case holding the coin in place that also was concealing the edges. Thank you

    Noted, and I stand duly humbled. While certainly not an excuse, I obviously wrongly assumed that the Poster, to whom I was responding, knew the ground rules better than I (given the differential in length of Membership); of course, we all know the adage on "assumptions". My error will not be repeated.

    My post was intended to illustrate that no matter how many times someone says it isn't a duck, it's still a duck.

    Often times, folks come onto the forums with preconceived notions about what they have and nothing you can do or say will ever change their minds.

    It was a simple video and did not specifically call out non-coin companies or even mention non-coin companies any more than when someone posts a YouTube clip of some song.

    My last post was certainly not referring to yours at all, and I'm very sorry if that is how it was taken. I thought your post was very, VERY funny AND very, VERY apropos to this thread! I was referring to a subsequent poster to your post who opined something in regards to CNN. My sincerest apologies if you thought I was in any way referring to, or saying something negative about you, or your post as it was really GREAT!

    No offense, Jesse, but you've posted a ridiculous number of photos that added absolutely nothing to this thread. If the suggestion was to tone it down some, it was both reasonable and warranted.

    Interesting response from the guy so laughably triggered over the mere mention of CNN in an unflattering way. Hypocrisy much?

    Care to elucidate; "Hypocrisy" does come in many forms.

    I'm sure if you think really hard, you'll figure it out. With all due respect, of course....
