Let me look at it also..
and we're glad to comment on it.
We can tell you if it's a genuine error coin,
or a damaged coin.
It is my understanding that TPG's like NGC and PCGS will not attribute varieties unless they have already been authenticated by a known service.
He is talking about "new errors" not varieties i guess.
I don't know, either. A couple of people have already asked him to clarify his comment, but he has not responded.
I've heard this statement many times before.. Not all coinshop owners are mint error specialists. Not all coin collectors have full knowledge of the minting process and how errors are created..
Best bet is to send it to have not just graded but also attributed (verified) by a third party grader. NGC or PCGS would be two of the best attributors of mint errors.
Your "specialist" friend should guide you in the submission process. It will take time and money. Im sure your friend can tell you how much and how long.
Then when the results come back you can post your findings and gloat about them.
I hope this was helpful. Until then... Good luck.
Thanks. Good advice.
And by the way Terry has several finds noted in Cherrypickers and he trained his daughter and she is a grader for one of the companies. Reportedly he took her to a coin show when she was 10 and a couple of people asked him to look at a gold coin. The owner hoped it would sell for $30,000. He handed the coin to his daughter who quickly pronounced it was a counterfeit. The owner started challenging her and she told him not to worry because the counterfeiter did such good work that his coins were highly collectible and he should get closer to $40,000. And I ws told that he Actually did.
These are a couple of options to get new varieties attributed. I've sent several to John Wexler (http://doubleddie.com/1801.html). $5 per coin. He is slowing down, but still provides the service. He writes sometimes for the Coin World Mag, and may include new varieties in articles. If he attributes it as a new variety, you can use his letter to send to ANACS to have it slabbed as such without paying their attribution fee. You can also send them to James Wiles at VarietyVista, $10 per coin. (http://varietyvista.com/Attribution Services.htm). Same thing with sending to ANACS.
I've also sent pictures of errors to Mike Diamond. He can also provide feedback. As mentioned above, members Fred Weinberg, Insider, Paddyman98, Rick Stachowski, and others are a great source.
