I already did by quoting it.
Oops with all the long responses on page 1 I scrolled right past that my mistake
my post saying 'tough crowd this morning'
I guess we have different interpretations of snark. I saw the OP’s post as being disappointed that some mock instead of admitting something is wrong.
I’m guessing the original poster wanted you-as one of the error experts-to comment on the issue rather than post something that doesn’t really move the issue forward.
on the posts of others who seemed to be a bit
confused as to what the attribution mistake
was, or what the OP was trying to say.
It was not negative about the OP, or the
coin, or the holder in any way.
....and by saying 'tough crowd', I obviously
wasn't referring to the OP whatsoever. I was
commenting on the 'crowd' who had already
posted before me.
If anyone - the OP, or anyone else who posted in this
thread, considers the term 'tough crowd' to be snarky,
then I don't really know what else to say about my
so-called 'snarky-ness' --except for maybe 'Really??'
It seemed like most saw what the mistake was and it was pointed out by others too.
Anyways I’m not sure why “the crowd” mattered much to you. Or at the very least why you felt it was more important than commenting on the coin (or adding something about the coin along with your comment...there wasn’t anything wrong with it, but by itself it didn’t come off looking too good on your part).
Agreed and I'm sure that's how he intended it, but if we wish to be technical, his quoted response also fits the definition of snark, which in this context is a snide and critical comment. I guess the greater point I had slyly hoped to make was that if I could intentionally misinterpret his post, perhaps he has misinterpreted others. Unfortunately, most seem to refuse to even consider the possibility.
That said, who thought Fred's post was snarky?
I can see it from your angle and it’s a fair point to make.
It's always possible, but I have examined it very closely under a glass and I see no sign. I would "think" that a person skilled enough to do this would spend their time on something worth more than $200, but who knows?
Just a cool Civil War Token with a repunched 3. Always liked that coin.
Wow this is a tuff crowd
Whats the big deal. Human error. Maybe TPGer was hoping. Unload the guns guys and just send it back to get corrected
I submitted one cupro nickel coin in person to PCGS.
To my surprise when the packaged arrived at my address i had a box of slabs with many hammered gold coins..
They mixed up the address!!!!!!
The big deal is he said he paid hundreds of dollars for it. If he just sends it to PCGS and they correct it there is a chance, according to their definition of what constitutes a Mechanical Error, that he will get it back corrected with no compensation and be out those hundreds of dollars because he bought it based on what they said it was on the label.
That should be my line!
it....Rodney would say, on Carson, in Vegas, etc.
"Tough Crowd here, Tough Crowd here tonight "
...that was all I was referencing . It's the most I've
been mis-understood since the 2nd wife.
