I’ve had quite a few. Have a few currently
The grading was accurate by ANA standards.
I had three of the gold coins in my original eight piece type set graded during the "rattle holder" era. I traded one for an early U.S. coin, cracked out another because it rattled and got it upgraded from MS-64 to 65 and got another upgraded from 62 to 63. And yes, the one point added significantly to the value.
Agreed. I personally aren’t a fan of the holders. My favorite the green label Pcgs actually. And of course the doily though they’re rare
20 miles due west of Portland. No not really. It’s a neat little historical village in a big spread out town that’s basically become a suburb of Portland
45 minutes away. I was there the other day. Didn’t love a lot of the political views from many of the signs though
I agree with you about the green label holders although you can't blindly use that as an indicator for a properly graded coin. There are some clunkers in them too.
As for doilies, I am not a fan. Why pay extra money for a label? I'll pass.
Agree about paying extra for the label. But if a nice coin in one that you’re buying the coin not the label. That’s where I like them. Always regret not buying a ms 64 saint in a doily an antique dealer I know had. Was probably a 65 today he was too strong on the money. He Couldn’t have cared less about the label and didn’t know. All he knew was it was a ms 64 pcgs saint. But he’d bought it when gold was up before. Now it would have been a good investment I think he wanted at the time $1800 for a coin I would have happily paid $1400 for. It was a pretty coin too though a common date
Agreed. There’s a reason quite a few haven’t been cracked out. Cause they’re dogs
Not all were dogs.
Some were just thought not to be upgradeable.
