    Wow. I would love to be able to see the side-by-side photos of all if you do this again in the future. I said no on that coin but from those photos that coin would be a definite yes...guessing that would be the case on other coins as well.

    Beautiful coin.

    You can always change your guess prior to the reveal.

    I know I said I would give the reveal on Sunday, but I will be house sitting and won't be around my computer. So I will do the reveal later this evening.

    Ok. And here are the results. A lot of great guesses. I was very happy overall with the results. I went 12-14 with 5 gold CAC. I won't complain with a success rate like that. As always he likes to leave you with a head scratcher, in this case it was the 1882-S Morgan in NGC MS-66. I cannot for the life of me, figure out why it did not pass.

    Big congrats!
    Gold on the doily, the NGC 2.0, and the MS 65 NGC Morgan were the best scores in my opinion!

    I just noticed @jtlee321 the #12 in your reveal should also say 64 (like in the original post)....great coin but I was a little confused where the gold 65 came from that I mentioned above

    Whoops, that was supposed to be a MS-64. I brought the images into the template and forgot to update the grade on the Morgan.

    Mechanical error as the tpgs would say. :p

    You caught it.. It's an MS-65 GOLD. I'll just use a sharpie and update the holder. :p

    The two I sweated the most were the Doily and NGC 2.0, I really had a good feeling about them and really, really wanted them to get the Gold.

    I just can't see why the '82-S 66 didn't get green. I hand it is gorgeous and very clean. I hope I can get a reason when I call them when the submission comes back. It's a wait and see now. The '38 Walker was a toss up for me, it's one of those AU-64/65's that made it into an MS-63 holder. I have a feeling they thought it had a touch of wear. I just really like the coin and the really early 1.2 Rattler, it's right after the transition from the White label 1.0's and 1.1's.

    Those two made the whole submission! I'd be a bit worried too but they were great coins. I underestimated both (the doily Buffalo I had as a green and the 2.0 Merc as a no sticker because I over analyzed the so-called "smudge" that really wasn't a smudge).

    The Walker was one I gave the benefit of doubt but mentioned it might not pass. I like it too from the picture but am guessing it did fail based on a touch of wear (or it could have just been a gut feeling no from a first impression). I wouldn't worry too much as it looks like a keeper regardless.

    The MS 66 Morgan is a mystery to me as well. I noticed a reed hit between the stars to the left of the nose on your larger photo. If that was the reason, it seems minor. I have seen those on MS 67 Morgans (although they were toned and not stickered).

    Nice congratulations. Was a killer bunch of coins. Was too tired to take the time to go through that many coins and try and guess. I thought the doily would likely go gold though

    My thought on the 66 Morgan was they didn’t like the surfaces and thought it dipped

    That sounds likely. I don't have it in hand, but from my images, it looks like it might have a bit of a haze from an improperly rinsed dip.

    I love the NGC 2.0. Well done. That is one heck of a batch of coins.

    Thank you. I've been sitting on a bunch of coins that I've needed to send in, this was the first batch I wanted to go. It contained what I thought had the best chance at getting a gold.
