My $10,000 PCGS Fail Unboxing: Learning Lessons On Grading Problem Coins
Here’s an interesting video! I recently had a wide variety of really interesting coins come through the coin shop I work at and we submitted a bunch of them – and learned some stuff in the process. While we are likely to have made our money back (plus the error quarters were not owned by us – learned that well after the fact though), there was a lot of money left on the table as a result of coins that came back in conditions significantly worse than we were hoping for them to. Coins unboxed include a 1853/2 $20 gold Double Eagle, 1857-D gold $1, 1692 Sweden 1/4 Ducat, 1729 Netherlands Ducat, 1912 Japan Yen, and error coins + older US ones.
