Chinese Lunar Scallop 2005 - 2014
« on: July 25, 2014, 02:22:33 PM »
I know that this is the easiest lunar set to complete.
But it seems to be the only complete PF70 in the NGC registry.  
There must be many more.

I thought I would post it and open the floor to any comments.

Excellent set.  Congrats.

It would be great, IMHO, if all the labels are similar (I see one is not the same as the others).  Even better also if the cert # is in sequence.

If I submit to NGC for reholder...do you know if they can number sequentially?

Would also having all of the COA's influence the value?
Is there any way to protect the COA's in a slab as well ?

I do not know.  Unless you are quirky like me, I would not bother resubmitting and dealing with NGC cost.

Actually I am a bit of a perfectionist,  If I can add a pedigree I would...but I don't think the set is large enough for pedigree attribution

I personally would pay a bit more if CoA is included.  That's just me.

Interesting question on the CoA protection.  Wonder if CGC will do CoA?

The width of COA after folded is the same width as NGC and PCGS slabs. The folded COA can be stored in a self sealed plastic bag, such as the following eBay listing, together with the encased coin. This will give you an extra protection of the coin and keep the COA next to the coin.

I do not know and have never done any business with this seller.

I have asked NGC if they can actually slab the CoA's in a separate CGC holder.
I will tell you what they say

G, yes they will # them sequentially just put them all on one invoice and put a big note on it, BTW your comments about easiest set LOL I beg to differ from rooster to ox is not as easy to grade 70 as anyone who has tried knows:)  nice set my friend! I had a weak set up in registry yours blows mine away:)

G,That would be a worthwhile en devour IMHO ,when you are done it might be the only complete sequentially numbered pf70 set in the whole registry ! very cool ! and besides the cool factor IMHO it very well could at least add the $250 + - invested to the value of the set x2  IMHO ,it does not get more perfect than that:)  these lunar coins right now are extremely undervalued , I just upgraded my pig and dog in my set to pf70 for half price of what the the 2 coins where selling for a year ago.Some Panda enthusiast kinda frown on the MCC lunar,s but I think they are missing the boat:) if mainland China is the future market with its huge population of collector's as some folk,s think what we need to understand is lunar coins are at least as popular there as panda's or possibly even more popular just my 2 cents.  If some one wants to debate that just look at the inventory of one of the biggest MCC dealer's in the world xu-hong it is chock full of every rare lunar imaginable (actually it is chocked full of everything imaginable:)
