...to find a 98 LD in good enough condition that it will grade 69 is pretty difficult.

Yes, that's true.

It is very difficult to have this 1980 speed skater coin graded at PR69UC. Apparently, big dealer is always treated different by grading company. This coin should not be graded as PR69UC by NGC. Just look the surface discoloration around the rim, it is a low grade coin.

Right-on poconopenn. I have been saying this for a long time. There is no fairness in Dodge (or any where else).

Right-on poconopenn. Buy the coin, not its grade.

As my Father always said, " Who ever said life is fair "?  Grading is a mystery.  Here is a bad grading experience that left egg on my face.  I bought a PCGS MS67 wanting to conserve it and regrade it at NGC.  It came back a MS 64.  I then thought in that case I'll send it back to PCGS and it graded again MS 64.  I'm still not sure how it slipped three grades?  Moral to the story, I'll never do that again.

Jim,

Did you crack the coin out of its NGC holder before you sent it to PCGS for the second time?

Can I just have it conserved and slab and skip the grading part to save the sky high fees that they are charging then?

i am perfectly happy to not have it graded.....I just want to protect the coin.

Yes, I did crack it out of the holder.  I am very careful and it only involves clipping the corners.  Then I can easily separate the two halves without touching the coin and slip into a mylar flip.

1991 Raw MS 1oz gold panda.
Such an amazingly low price.
Just $9,800....
http://cgi.ebay.com/CHINA-1991-PANDA-100-YUAN-1-oz-999-GOLD-PROOF-SEALED-/280668528269?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415925de8d#ht_4966wt_930

It's not even a proof coin which it was listed as. Somebody called t***t put in a jaw-dropping bid of $9,600 but there were two bidders who came in even higher! The seller is well-known and there are multiple bidders so it's hard to account for the result. Good grief.

This is a very questionable listing and may involve money laundry. IMO, r***g and 3***3 are the same person.

Both bidders purchased game and banknotes during last 30 days and no coin.
