Ive got the same Problem with a 1999 1/2.

It have too some hairlines, but i think there would be no way to get a better grade with some fine hairlines.

Thanks again for your feedback and valued opinions KeyDate1/2ozPandas. You as well Honus and KeepTrying!

Think I will get a few together and resubmit this sharp looking panda , hopefully maybe get a bump to 66 or 67.

KeyDate1/2ozPandas, may I ask why it is best to crack out versus leaving in slab when higher grade? Have never cracked any coins out of a slab yet as this is my only lower graded one at the moment.

Imagine you are reading an essay and have to grade it from 0-100.  The first time the essay is submitted an experienced professional at your company graded it 64.  The same essay comes in and you have to grade it, is it really worth the companies reputation to issue a different grade from what it believed last time, while if it comes in with no grade assigned you have to read it and assign your grade to it.  The fact you are sending it in means that the essay was mis-graded the first time and you want them to have unbiased new grade, with unbiased being the key word.

disclosure: to keep census straight one should send in the rubber part of the holder to ngc ,they will adjust census . to my knowledge there is nothing illegal or unethical in cracking out a coin , I personally have only done it BUT only in the case of the few coins of many hundreds I have graded that I thought where seriously undergraded( pandabear 23 coin could be)  ..MY opinion : cracking out 68 graded coins in hopes of a 69 is a waste of time and money .... I know folks who do it, there results are dismal in my opinion less than 10% success

Thanks for the link. Looks like I can do it. Got the necessary tools. Thinking of waiting for Whitman show in B'more to submit in person with some others that are in OMP's. Get all done at once. Haven't had NGC membership for a couple years since the coins I have bought lately are graded in the first place.

Then going ride down to D.C. and see the new baby Pand Bei Bei in person and maybe buy the 1 oz Silver medal for him and support the zoo.
