  1. Thanks for the vid. Proved I don't know shit abt grades. Some of the 58's looked better to me than the MS 62/63's, especially the one missing part of "LIBERTY". Overall nice lot. Again, THANKS.

  2. If you have a PCGS-graded coin that you feel is over graded, you can resubmit the coin back to PCGS and they will downgrade your coin for free.

  3. Any news on the Indian head five dollars. Also just found, and bought a quarter Indian dated 1912 with cords under chin. something very interesting going on here.

  4. Aw you got me lol unfair. I thought it was the 1862 just cause of the age…I was technically right. Bag marks 62 twice! You got some good grades throughout, nice. Thanks for the vid!

  5. The other point I wanted to mention, is I thought your 1928 Indian head quarter eagle would grade ms 62 or ms63 and not scratched is because from what I see of the picture of your coin, its not a scratch but a flaw. They never mention flaws digs or edge nicks which is joke god knows why not, as its all part of grading. I have an Indian 1908 eagle with a dig under neck obverse, but they still say its ms63 a bit silly.

  6. I have never had any trust or faith in PCGS or NGC Although both your gold pieces came back as fake they more then likely are. However both these slabbing firms have made big bloomers, by passing genuine pieces as being fake, and fake pieces as being genuine. I live in the UK near London, and have had this problem from both these firms. They have even said coins have been cleaned when after careful examination they have not. They even passed big digs and said nothing, and given high grades. Also after they grade, people have taken it out of the slab, then getting a higher grade after sending it back in. I have no faith as its a racket. I would strongly advise that you send your gold pieces to your mint in America say nothing about the slabbing firms, and see what they say, I worked at the Royal mint London in the 1960s and helped make the first bust Mary Gillick sovereigns. You also have Museums which will also check them for you, and you never no, one or both may come back as genuine.

  7. MS62? that was the worst shape coin as of minute 16:06
    i'm both stunned and extremely happy for you and or the owner of these.
    great review

    come to think of it, i believe PCGS may have used this same silver quarter in a video recently showing an example of environmental damage on a coin.

  8. Problem with your coins being fake is if you are married, or have any Gold Jewelry. Put your Gold side by side and you will notice that the fake Gold is always real shiny. Being old as those two were? I caught it off the jump go

  9. I see two problems with buying slabbed coins. The first is counterfeit slabs. I am hearing about the growing problem of cheap or counterfeit coins being sold in counterfeit slabs. If you know how to tell an authentic slab from a fake then it's less of a problem, but I'm just getting started. Second is an authentic slab that has been carefully opened, the graded coin removed, and replaced with a similar coin of much lower value. They are re-sealed so well it's almost impossible to tell and the plastic, printing, label, etc. is all legit so no clues there. Are there any solutions for these problems?

  10. Hey Dr – new to your channel and had a question.. with the little knowledge I have on coins – does getting the coins graded really raise the value enough to warrant the cost of getting it done?

  11. Why do you submit so many coins for grading when it’s not worth the grading it probably cost more to grade it then the coin is really worth doesn’t make any sense to me!!!!!

  12. You can use acetone and hydrochloric acid on silver and gold coins. Just don't rub them at all ever. If you coins are pure silver or gold you can heat some dirt off them. Do not do it if they are alloy though or it will mess them up. Lastly if you use acetone and or hydrochloric acid you may have uneven toning because the removal of the dirt will leave a less toned spot. To remedy this you can place coin, silver, in a container with aluminum and pour hot water mixed with baking soda and the sulfur that makes tarnish will be drawn out of the coin and into the aluminum. It is a chemical reaction that does not effect the silver. Everything mentioned, except the heating, is safe on silver coins containing copper.
