ATS is also a hotbed of cliqueism, slab worship, and people trying to prove how smart they are (usually at somebody else's expense). Enough that if somebody says it rained in Phoenix, I'd look for a 2nd source or a news report about an unusual drowning. The rumor swirl is that CAC is either shutting down, being sold, or continuing on, and that CAC will get into the business of slabbing coins, or a new company will be formed to slab coins, or something else. John Albanese will be the sole grader or sole finalizer or something else. John is tired of the endless parade of MS66 Merc dimes looking for a gold bean, or the endless parade of AT Morgans. Anybody have any information???
