    Fresh News from the Vegas Show this Week! 07/15/2021

    The owner of THREE 1916-D Mercury Dimes in PCGS MS67FB CAC submitted them all for upgrade on Tuesday. The expectation/intent was not that they would all upgrade. Since they are all CAC, the owner thought it would be a good idea to submit them together so the graders would have the rare opportunity to examine them all at the same time. Last week, for a short period of time, the owner actually had four in 67FB but sold the very nice white example that was not CAC. Up until today, there were 10 graded as PCGS MS67FB. Today, there are only 9.

    Here is the New Stand Alone Top Pop and Only 1916-D in PCGS MS67+FB CAC...granted, it will have to go back for a new sticker since the holder changed. Congratulations!

    Are you saying the 3 in MS67FB he submitted ("there were 10, now there's only 7") for upgrades WERE upgraded to 68...? And how/where did this new, stand-alone 67FB come to be...? Sorry, this all was a bit hard to follow.

    No. The expectation and intent were that the one the graders thought the best would upgrade, creating a single finest in the pops. For those following the registry game, single finest gets you 2 bonus points, while tied for finest gets you 1. Owner gets another $100K bump on one coin, PCGS gets to announce finest 1916-D dime.

    There were 10, he resubmitted 3. 2 came back the same grade so now there are 9 and the third came back MS67+FB making it the top pop coin with a ranking of 1/0
