Since all of these coins are going off under the PCGS Secure Plus tier, they will all receive TrueView images, which I look forward to seeing. They were all received at PCGS on October 14, 2021. Submission 241240, Order 22438045, 1 Item This one had to go on a separate invoice since it's a hammered coin. Line 1: Scotland: silver penny of Alexander III, second coinage, ca. 1280-1286 What I'm hoping for: any straight grade of VF20 or higher. I do expect it should grade higher than 20, though I don't know if it will go XF. In the past I have gotten a fair number of XF-AU grades on the hammered silver coins I sent in to PCGS. Thus far I've done OK on not getting many "Details" problem notations, except with hammered gold. In that category, I've taken some hard knocks. (You might say I’ve repeatedly gotten hammered on hammered gold.) I eventually did get one piece of hammered gold that came back with a problem-free straight-grade. Submission 241244, Order 22438026, 4 Items Line 1: Great Britain: silver Trade dollar, 1899-B What I'm hoping for: any Genuine "details" grade. Frankly, I would be astonished if this coin straight-graded. It is pretty obviously cleaned. As long as it's not counterfeit, I should do OK on this one, as they're a very popular type, and I don't have terribly much invested in it. But since they're also very popular with Chinese counterfeiters, I figured this piece deserved to ride along with my PCGS submission to resolve the question of authenticity. Two dealer friends have looked at it and said it looks real enough to them, and I concur- I think it probably is real. But the cleaning makes it hard to say for sure. So off it goes for certification. The remainder of the submission in Lines 2-4 are items that are each worth barely as much as the eventual cost of slabbing them, but they're all pieces I wanted to add to my collection, which is all slabbed. I had some PCGS vouchers I needed to use up, anyway. Line 2: Germany (Thale am Harz in Saxony): aluminum 2-mark notgeld token (cat & crown), 1921 What I'm hoping for: any straight MS-grade. Somebody on the forums posted one of these a while back, which was the first time I'd ever seen the design. I knew I had to find one. You've gotta love that cat on there, playing with a crown, even if it has a face like Otto von Bismarck! It was not terribly expensive (25 EUR; $38.27 USD after international shipping.) The German dealer called this piece a Fast Stempelglanz (Choice UNC). I concur that it's UNC, though I don't know what Sheldon Scale grade it will receive from PCGS. Line 3: Latvia: silver 5-lati, 1929 What I'm hoping for: any straight MS-grade. This is a lovely design I've always admired, and it's a beautiful crown-sized coin. I do think it is Uncirculated and purchased it as such, though I don't think it's quite Gem quality (MS65+). Something in the MS62-63 range would satisfy me. I plucked this one out of my own swap/sell/giveaway inventory and figured if it ended up in a PCGS MS holder, I'd keep it for my own collection. Line 4: Panama: silver Balboa, 1947 What I'm hoping for: any straight MS-grade. This is another appealing crown/dollar-sized coin, and a popular type. I think it is a generic quality UNC and bought it as such. I have another Balboa (a 1934) which is almost as nice, but perhaps not MS- I think that one is an AU coin. Something in the MS62-64 range on this one would satisfy me. Like the Latvian coin above, I plucked this one out of my own swap/sell/giveaway inventory and decided to include it in my personal collection if it comes back with a straight MS-grade.
