    Well, after a siege-like wait for my 9-piece NGC world coin order to finish, grades have finally posted. Coins won't be coming back until next week because of a few "mechanical errors" in the slabs (which I noticed prior to them leaving the building, so they were able to pull the order and correct them) - but I figured why not, go ahead and have a GTG for a few. I won't make you try to guess the Canadian PL dollars I sent, both of which are rainbow toned, because grading them from photos would be near impossible. I'll share one of them at the bottom of this post.

    Here is your GTG coin:

    And, just for fun, here's a Canada 1980 1 Dollar that's coming back as an SP66. I've shared the photo that best shows the color:

    I like it at 63RB. If it was an American coin, I'd say 64.

    Here are the images from the Cert Verification app - side note, I think I could do a better job with the images when it gets back.

    So far we have not had a correct guess (according to the NGC slab) :)

    Yes, it will be coming back as MS65RB (tied for finest known as far as I can tell.)

    Hm. Maybe I don't have good grade guessing chops for this one.

    Nice copper, though.
