ANACS is really tough, tone it and it may pass.
I don't get it.
You can ask that, but I won't answer. But rest assured, I will do it again. Proably at least 20 times more because I have about that many more Wrens that I want to eventually get graded and slabbed.
Don't take offence, I was just curious. Not my place to tell you what to do with your $ and your goods.
I have a limited budget so personally I'd rather spend the money on another coin.
One of the things I love about coins is the tactility, which is lost the moment it is entombed.
I hear, but there is an attitude that is common that unless you can turn a coin over for a profit, that it is not of value to have them graded. I send in coins becaise I enjoy it, and it protects the coin and they do conservation.
this one has similar thumb print, but is slabbed MS63
back in the early 80's..when i started dealing in coins full time...a fingerprint wqs a death knell for a coin, making it not unc, nowadays it seems fingerprints do nopt matter at all...not even a detail grade for it..if i have any like that, i add a detail note saying "fingerprint" just what i do, anyways..
Why would a fingerprint get a detailed grade? Eventually it will tone out and touching coins are normal. These are not proof coins...and even Proofs aren't sterile.. These are 80 year old copper coins.
The oils and chemicals in the fingerprint are different from the normal environmental factors that cause toning. In some cases, the fingerprint can be etched into the surface leaving permanent damage. You can almost think of it as a type of corrosion. That's why coins with visible fingerprints, especially heavy ones, might get a details grade.
