    As most of you folks know, I'm not a real hair splitter when it comes to collecting coins. If a coin strikes my fancy I'm on it like a duck on a June bug, raw, slabbed or otherwise. Anyway, a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to bid in an auction that beheld one of the most beautiful coins I've ever imagined........a De Francisci '23 reverse proof Peace Dollar. I'm not much on slabbed moderns. In fact most of my moderns reside as raw or in OGP, but when I saw this at auction I just had to have it. Maybe it was the allure of the new JA grading service holder? Beats me. :)

    I’m not much on modern coins either but if I saw this one one of two things would have happened.
    1) I would be the owner or
    2) You would have paid more for it.
    A beautiful and stunning coin. Congratulations!

    I was naughty......I did pay a tad more than I should have (given already I have the coin in OGP).

    I find these much more attractive then silver eagles,the history also.These aren't bad at all for modern but I doubt I'll be getting one for around melt anytime soon. Seeing one of these as a worn pocket piece over the years would be quite interesting

    I have seen a few other pictures of this coin and it remind me of liquid mercury. I am very aware you would have had to like it very much to obtain it slabbed.

    Let me help, because that is the kind of guy I am:

    Go to CAC.COM.
    JA is a reference to John Albanese.
    CAC is a separate legal entity from CACG.
    CACG is the TPG entity.
    CAC is not a TPG. CAC uses a Green sticker...to designate a B coin, and a Gold sticker to designate an A coin. No sticker is applied to a C coin.
    CACG does not use stickers. The CAC green colored logo is already applied as an identification of the CAC entity connection, and all CACG Holders use the logo (at this time...who knows in the future).
    CACG does not apply or delineate between an A or B or C coin. The coin either is or it isn't worthy of the TPG designation given by CACG.
    The non-application of a Sticker by CAC is simply an opinion that the piece is not an A or B coin.

    As to the coin in question, Laura agrees inclusive of the Morgan issues. Read her commentary in the CAC Forum Thread re. "Want To Get Somebody Interested In Cons?"

    A Whos Who of collectors also agree in the Thread. Me included.

    I certainly know how that feels at least once per day.
