Who knows what the connection is. I have never had an issue with Panda America personally.
Note how the latest onslaught of pandaworld coins now boast inconspicuously altered yet intentionally blurred registry numbers.
Why the potential alternate account and secrecy?
Who knows, they seem legit though...

It does not have to be Panda America. May be - one of relatives/family of the owner branching out personally. We need you Peter here!

My flight back from the ANA was delayed and it landed at 3:15 a.m. I will post some photos and comments later. On this topic, I heard from someone reliable that this is PandaAmerica but it slipped my mind (it really did) to ask about when I was talking to PandaAmerica.

Best wishes,

The sheer number and variety of coins being posted suggests that there is likely a connection.

Would there be any relevance if they were connected?

I agree with panda halves ... I have never had any issues with Panda America at all.

Same thing can be said about flying, we still do it everyday.

I'll continue to get products from them until I see reason or facts why I should not

I sent pandaworldcoins 2011 an email from my ebay account and asked him if he was Panda America and he said " I am not Panda America. I am just a retailer and a collector." signed Tien.

The simple explaination is this seller submitting to NGC via pandaamerica, since pandaamerica is a NGC dealer. It has been known for long time that big dealer usually receives more favorable grade than individual collector.

I don't think Panda America sends in collectors coins because even though they are an NGC Dealer, most collectors have to send in their own coins including me. Maybe he buys from them??

Boys glad to see you all are thinking about us.

I just found out about this today as I haven't been on the site in a while due to the crazy gold market lately.

But boy was I shock to see this today.

Ok I dug into this a little and in only took a minute for me to find out some shocking things ( at least to me)

1.  "PandaWorldCoins2011" is the former owner of Panda America, Martin Weiss.  He is retired now and I guess he is starting to sell some of his personal collection on Ebay after seeing the success we had.

2.  I found out why the listings look almost the same as ours.......lol 
     My ebay guy Henry, is listing for him on his off time......( I guess he is not smart enough to make the listing look different then ours......so stupid....when I asked him about it today he first said it was his girlfriend....( who happens to live with him)....at that point I said I don't need to hear anymore.

3.  So next minute I fired him.


Thanks for pointing this out on here guys.....I guess now I have to go hire another ebay listing person.....(one that is smarter lol)



3.
