Update On 1877 Trade Dollar

Coins | Pat

Hi everyone. Well today was the day mankind left the earth for the surface of the moon. Did we think we could do it.? We did and we completed the greatest mission in space. But this is about an update on a coin I wrote about four months ago. All the information about it is in that blog. When I wrote it the coin was raw and I just found it in my safe. It has been there many years. So when I bought it I did get a good price. I didn't know if it was real it weighed out ok. But I did contact someone in the ANA and asked a few questions. His reply was it's so nice to see a real one. Now I believe in updating my blogs when I get new information. This coin was heavily used. I didn't know weather to send it in. So I asked he said yes I would. There rare and you should make your money back. That I don't care about. I bought it because I liked it. So after a while I decided why not. I did it the cheapest way as far as fees are concerned. So if it went to NGC. I waited and waited not knowing what to expect. Maybe a good four or better. When I received it back it was graded an XF 40. I was surprised. Shocked. Never expecting that high a grade. So I decided to write the blog in May but I also believe in any update I get for sending it away. Those who commented on the original blog plus the new members since deserved to know. Many times I have left comments I'm sure you have to. Keep us updated or when you get a picture put it up so we can see it. A picture is half a blog. You can see what the writer is talking about. As I have said many times sometimes we don't know what we have. I knew the coin. But value to me if you have read my blogs is not in the Red Book or what will it be worth in ten years. It's about collecting and the learning I get. It makes me feel good . It brought me happiness years ago and now that it's found and protected I feel very good. My sons will enjoy the money value. Meanwhile I get to enjoy it all over again. So check before you send a coin away when your not sure. Now it's home and safe I hope you enjoyed this. Thank you. Pat

Notre Dame 2013 850 Year Anniversary Coin

Coins | Pat

Hi everyone.. On April 15,2019 we turned on our T.V. to watch a famous landmark being burned to the ground thank God it wasnt.. The Cathedral of Notre Dame. In 2013 it celebrated 850 years of serving people from all walks of life. We watched the people cry. It was sad. What we did not know is many of the possessions were being saved. They saved famous Rose windows statues ,saved relics ,paintings all they could before they had to get out. They say in six years it should be rebuilt. The coin is 21gr 37 mm and made at the Monnaie de Paris. The mint of Paris. The mintage was ten thousand. Considering four million people a year visited the famous Cathedral. That mintage is low. To think it was started in 1163 and completed in 1345 and destroyed in one day can make you cry. The builder was a Bishop Maurice de Sully. He took one building and turned it into something magnificent. The foundation stone was set by Pope Alexander the Third. The coin below caught my eye. It was to me and still is a beautiful coin. Others think so. Even though it's a Ten Euro the ones designed for the rebuilding are exactly the same except those were made in gold and the mintage lower. I love the gargoyles and the window with the Virgin and child.the blue enamel is a wonderful touch.It has 850 for the anniversary and the year. It's a busy coin but done very tastefully. That's what caught my eye. There is so much history I decided to keep it to a small blog. If I was to list those who visited it since 1345 there is not enough room. Never mind the artifacts. So I decided to keep it to the coin itself. A beauty in its own right. I hope you enjoyed this. I lost the first one. That's why I keep notes. Take care have a great day. Six years from now it will be a great day when they open those front doors. Enjoy Pat.

cleaned, scratched?

Coins | user_6581

Is anyone else upset by what NGC and PCGS are doing? Perfectly fine coins are given bad grades like cleaned or scratched. I don't see any cleaning many times. And a scratch; is it microscopic? What do you think people; should we take them out of their holders? Also I've seen poor grading - what's with these companies? This stuff is important to alot of us.
