UPDATE: This coin is officially "Scheduled for Grading!!!"
Looks like NGC has added the correct attribution for the coin, as its listed on the online invoice as:
L&M-108, Y-344 JUNK BIRDS OVER JUNK 1932 S$1
Which means that it's authentic...so that's great news!
I'm hoping that since there is only one coin on the invoice, it will be graded soon!
well done., sir. well done.
Congratulations! Nice find, wow!
Can't wait to hear the grade!
I guess it really was "junk" silver, huh? "JUNK BIRDS OVER JUNK 1932 S$1" that is!
Definitely my choice for cherrypick of the year.
Thanks for sharing.
It's official: MS63!!!
I have to say, I'm glad I took pictures of this coin before I sent it in...NGC's slab photos make it look awful.
Horrible question - but junk is the name of the ship I'm guessing? So "boat, with birds over boat" is what they mean?
Nice coin we're happy for you.
Yep, the ships are referred to as "junks"
Easy fix. Remove from slab, quick dip in a bath, and back off to NGC for that MS-64 and better pictures. Then collect your $3,000+ reward and wait for your quarter to come back too and then buy a house.
I love seeing stories like this. What a find!
I know there's collectors out there who DROOL over these in MS grades... Lots of fakes of these, too, so it's good to know you got a real one.
This is all very cool. Congrats!
Wow! A little surprised it got a 63, but major congrats, find of the year.
From one cherry picker to another... well done sir!
Thanks guys! I really appreciate all the kind words. As a dancer who just completed my MFA and is now applying for teaching positions, a find like this really helps me bridge the gap financially until I'm hired somewhere. I'm glad I was able to share it with all of you!
Thread resurrection. This was a neat story.
I guess people here don't lecture others about resurrecting threads anymore. I'm glad people are a little more chill now.
I've had the trolls PILE on me when I responded to old threads.
Ah...one of the few coins I wished I still had! All time best melt value pickup, honestly...but that coin paid my bills for half a year, so I can’t complain too much I suppose...
Yeah, that's why I warned it was a resurrection.
