Should You Submit Your Coins For Grading?

#1 Unread post by Daniel »

When should you submit your coins to grading companies? It's a question asked by many coin collectors and roll searches. So I created a detailed video on this subject since it's not a simple answer.

Thank you Daniel. Very helpful informitve video on what to grade and not to grade. :)
On the coins that are not worth grading what or where do u suggest us to go to sell them as raw coins.
When local coin shops have not been paying what the coin is worth in Red Book, or as an error or variety in CherryPickers, but only offer what the coin is worth n reduced prices of their metal content?
I personally not comfortable with Ebay, because I don't know how it works, and how you know if the seller really has the coin you are buying or if buyer is legitimately will send payments?
I am abit confused on how liquidate coins.
Thank you for your time and very helpful supportive community

I just submitted a coin for reconsideration. It is in a 30 year old holder from PCGS, and everyone that I showed the coin too thought it deserved a 68, rather than a 66 that was on the holder. My question is when submitting for reconsideration, what is the maximum extra points they'll give? Is a 67 the best my coin can do regardless if it is a 68?

Welcome,
Your so-called "Seasoned Store Owning Dealer" does not have the knowledge base to accurately attribute die varieties, sorry

I would call this this is "Environmental Damage" ....... this is not any type of Mintmark Variety
