Way too much drama. I would guess the OP had problems with HA in the past.

Agree with the drama comments.
Edited to add: It's my #1 go to online for nice coins.
Not my #1 but I do like them. However my wife gets pretty upset when she sees the heritage name on a package. She has learned that means I spent a lot on a coin. Sort of a Pavlovian thing now.
And I think the op was already looking for a problem prior to receiving the coin. The coin is graded you can always send it to ngc they will compensate for the mistake in grading assuming there is one.
Yeah, I know that one as well sir. Whenever a CNG box shows up, the wife gets extra grumpy because she knows its not any $20 Ebay purchase.....
You just need to make sure she sees you make a killing once in a while flipping a coin.
That can't happen to easy if I never sell, and she knows that.
I love it when it all makes sense. Good work, thanks for stopping by. HA is one of the best coin sites out there, period. You guys do good work.
I have only won a few coins from them, but I would 100% agree with the sentiment.
I love the internet and all, but I'm starting to think people shoot from the hip way too often. Why not ask first, get the answer (or non-answer), and THEN start an angry thread? Starting the thread first is putting the cart before the horse, no wait, it's like buying the cart and you don't even have a horse!
There's a @brg5658 pun in there somewhere.
The current SB Auction site works as well as I'd imagine the HA website worked in the 1800's, which is to say, it doesn't. And I use SB!
That wasn't very nice.......
How is it not nice? Sometimes major companies monitor message boards.
I'm not a nice guy. So if you want to hang me for it go ahead. Please just use the right color rope.
Too funny. That is usually what it means! Legend has been getting some of my business as well.
Huh. I've never had an issue with either one, HA or SB. Yes, they are very different, but I haven't found either any fundamentally less functional. I wonder if the particular browser in use matters.
Can you elaborate on "removing" the spouse?
C'mon, you know very well what I mean - lawyers, judges, Special Masters, psychologists administering MMPI tests to both parents, custody orders, the whole enchilada, and of course I'm being flippant, because that path WILL send you on at least a temporary financial downturn. But at the output end of that tunnel, I am now a truly happier and more ardent numismatist, because what I call "spousal revenge spending" is off the table. And I get to devote 100% of my vacations to serving the American Numismatic Association at conventions, and not dealing with having to go to beaches, which I hate with a passion anyway.
And if you think getting what you want in that litigation is tough, and it is, try it with an opposing party that's on a first name basis with the Judge, because they work together. I STILL won, even though I did a lot of the legal prep myself.
The topper? The ex of now 16 years came along to Atlanta with my son and I last February to see what all the fuss is about. She now sort of gets it. Rhonda Scurek almost had her recruited to do character acting at future ANA shows. What the ex got most of all is how wonderfully nice and magnificent everybody with ANA staff is, from Walt and Kim and Rhonda, on down to the newest intern.
I'm already game planning my ANA summer convention trip for Denver in 2017. The following week is a total solar eclipse crossing the whole nation from coast to coast. The ultimate geek trip - coins AND astronomy. Throw in a MacWorld expo, and the bliss might be too much to take.
SB has been plagued, and I mean PLAGUED with technical issues since the new site launched. It was very bad, then got better, than got bad again, and now seems to be okay for the past two weeks. If you have not experienced inability to connect, inability to log-in, inability to place bids, inability to search/ filter, site crashes, and other strange behavior, I think you have either not been using it very long or very often, or you are just plain lucky! These issues have been reported from many users, across many regions, different times of day, different browsers, different hardware (PC,mac, phones, tablets, etc) over many months.
SB has confirmed some of the issues and has promised they are working on improving the site. I personally have had email conversations with them. For awhile the problems were getting worse, so I thought they basically didn't care about the online/web bidding part of their business. However, it has gotten better in past few weeks, so it does look like they are trying to fix the database and website issues.
Their sorting / filtering / categories are still 10 years behind HA, but they told me they are working on that too. Not sure if they really will improve that part.
I still think SB is a great company, and I have won coins, and will continue to bid. They have a good coin selection, and their billing and shipping department seems really good. The only thing is, there site needs to be continually improved and fixed, and I am worried they are going to just leave it "good enough".
HA has always been great since I started using it two years ago, not sure if it was ever bad. A+
