    I laughed initially until I saw the actual picture of the sandpaper eagle. How in the heck did that leave the mint without assistance and how did they determine that sand paper eagle is MS64 lol.

    And gee, I wonder why the mega-dealers always end up with these?

    I think you are right - this rivals the dime struck on nail. I am just glad these type things really do not interest me.

    Because they buy the mint sealed monster boxes or they have the money to purchase them from the folks who find them in unsearched :)hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:) rolls.

    If I worked for the Bureau of the Mint I should make a suggestion that every so often we would make something "interesting" and ship it out just to increase sales from those hoping to find a "treasure."

    That is nothing short of pathetic. PCGS needs to be ashamed but the nail proved they have no shame.:banghead:

    I think it was likely made intentionally, just like the coin-on-a-nail, and the chiquita banana sticker currency, and the proof 1970 quarter struck on a Canada silver quarter. There seems to be more and more of these coming out lately. Just my opinion.

    I will hold no hard feelings if this post is removed, but as far as I'm concerned PCGS has established itself as involved in the sex trade rather than numismatics. They'll never get a favorable word from me again.

    Just my opinion: the U.S. Mint apparently needs to kick something familiar to all of us, start taking names and show some employees the door, as well as the meeting place of the federal grand jury.

    What idiot at PCGS is making the decision to grade this crap?

    PCGS and NGC are in the business of slabbing stuff for a fee. If they could, I've no doubt they'd certify vintage vehicles in some sort of large sealed cube. In fact, how about some of you photoshop savvy guys make me a pic of say, a vw beetle or a muscle car in a pcgs slab? Might be good for a laugh.

    I wonder what an MS70 sanding disc would look like...

    It would have to be struck on a super-fine grit paper.

    :rolleyes: Looks like PCGS is going on the ignore list! :( IMO, anyone here who thinks his/her opinion :yack::yack::yack::vomit: is any more significant to PCGS than a drip landing in the Baltic sea may need a reality check. :D

    Numismatics covers a lot of interests. Mint "errors" like coins struck on nails are one of them. Coin impressions on feed fingers add some insight into the operation of a coin press and the types of mistakes that can occur. Two years ago, a large group of mint errors was discovered to have been made with counterfeit dies. They fooled the TPGS authenticators and consultants for awhile. Perhaps other more unusual errors that are accepted as genuine ;);) will be discovered to be counterfeit sometime in the future.
