Or tell them what the grade is.

Apparently we know enough to spot an obvious fake when we see one. I don't care whether anyone else values my opinion or not; you're nothing to me. Apparently PCGS thought the coin suspect enough to recall it which answers the question: It's a dud. To borrow from Mother Laura's lingo (you seem to idolize her) it is below "expensive dreck."
I see the trolling has officially started (by you). No one may have an opinion on grading and how the TPGs operate, nor are they qualified to talk about TPGs if they’re not a certified grader at a TPG. Except you, of course Now shoo, go back under your bridge and wait for the next goat to come along. This is another great thread you’re trying to ruin.
Why are some people using different names here than on CU and don't want to say it?
Why are you talking about something that has nothing to do with this thread? Shoo!!
And your justification for trying to demean CAC? Please do explain.
Good work! You helped save some unsuspecting collector.
Actually I would like to inspect the coin to give my full opinion. I don't think that CAC is in the business to correct anyone. Their business is to give the heads up on correct grades for the Market.
So CAC has never put a note on a coin before about something that needed to be corrected or helped correct one from what you "think"?
Take this to a PM. This is not the appropriate place to take out personal vendettas. We don’t care about your intense desire to support PCGS or CAC. This thread is about educating others about a fake that both PCGS and CAC missed. Argue all you want, it doesn’t change their mistake. People make mistakes. Time to accept that they’re not infallible and move on.
Opening a fresh beer for this...cant wait to see what the spin master comes up with next.
Actually CAC didn't miss it as I doubt it was submitted. I expressed an interest in seeing whether CAC would notice as a matter of curiosity. It managed to escape detection by the PCGS graders and the finalizer. I wanted to see if it would sticker.
CAC was involved how?
So many garbage posts
I stand corrected. Just your company was involved.
You’re correct. I’m not sure where it came to me that CAC stickered it. Could be that I just looked at a very lovely toned T1 Buffalo with a green bean and mixed threads.
Anyway, don’t ever speculate about a TPG, unless you do so positively. Even though CAC doesn’t anything about evaluating authenticity on their website, @baseball21 knows everything about TPGs and you don’t, so only he/she can tell you what they do with fake coins, and you can be expected to be corrected with insults and rhetorical questions if you don’t agree with his/her opinion. He/she demands you show yourself and prove you’re an expert, while hiding under a bridge of anonymity, nipping at the heels of anyone who dare cross his/her path. Now run along and listen to what our dear PCGS defender says and everything will be fine.
You're incessant trolling of me is probably why. Congrats for finally making my blocked list where essentially no one resides but now you do.
No just don't do it when you have no idea what you are talking about and aren't just angrily trying to troll someone like this garbage you just posted saying "Even though CAC doesn’t anything about evaluating authenticity on their website, @baseball21 knows everything about TPGs and you don’t, so only he/she can tell you what they do with fake coins, and you can be expected to be corrected with insults and rhetorical questions if you don’t agree with his/her opinion."
This is just absolute garbage especially if you're so uneducated about CAC you don't know what they do.
Anyways life is short congrats on working hard enough to actually make my block list which has been well over a year since I added someone too
Folks, I think we can finally get back to discussing the focus of the thread. Seems there are a few TPG certified fake coins out there and these threads do a great job informing us and reminding us to keep our eyes open. Buy the coin, not the slab.
Add me too, because you won’t like what I have to say. Since you’ve joined CT you’re only promoting PCGS&CAC, it appears that’s the only reason why you’re here. Somebody mentioned CAC and that’s why some of us thought the coin also had a sticker. It doesn’t mean we’re all morons.
...back to the topic: I personally believe PCGS made a mistake. Not a big deal though if they are going to correct it.
I agree, as long as they correct it publicly, and not behind the curtain.
The public should be made aware of PCGS' acceptance of their responsibilities in this marketplace, and not feel like they have little / no chance of recovering from a less publicized mistake.
