Before Mailing My Coins I'm curious

#1 Unread post by CreamCityCoins » Mon Jun 29, 2020 5:54 pm

Hello, can anyone with experience with mailing their coins tell me if they've ever gotten the WRONG coins back from grading companies? Or has anyone known any credible persons who have had this happen to them? I wanted to go to a coin show but they don't grade errors on site and due to covid do not accept drop offs.

Personally, I have NEVER had the wrong coins returned to me ... from any of the top 3 TPG's

If you are reluctant or fearful to send off your coins with the worry that you will receive the wrong ones back....

:eureka:
I recommend that you image the coins,......... making sure that you take some sort of 'close-up' of what I call a "COIN MARKER"...... this will be some type of tick mark, stain, toning, etc. on the coins surface. Then when you receive them back, you will be sure that they were yours.

I will try that. I don't have very fancy cameras for getting great images at present. Decent, far from the worst in the world. I have some very high grade errors that look absent of such markers, or at least I'm not aware of them. May I ask, as I'm from Wisconsin if I might be able to have you look at some of my coins should I feel the need? If so, what part of the state about do you reside?

In these times, with the rioting and potentially more shut downs I trust mailing services less at present.

Thanks,
I look forward to and hope I get a chance to see your coins.
I live in Berlin.
Funny thing, the Post Office is actually one of the more reliable services still running right now.

I have been sending coins through the Post Office my entire career. Not once ever, has a coin gone missing or not been delivered, at least for me..........
