I Bought a Slabbed ASE!|Coin Update #20

Coins-United States | CoinHunter

Hello all and welcome to yet another blog!


Today, in this blog, I am going to tell you about and show off a recent purchase and talk about NGC Registry sets. Sometime last week I went to my coin store knowing exactly what I was going to come home with. I had seen a box of slabs during a previous visit that was full of NGC graded American silver eagles. The price tag said Spot+$20. Which if you think about it, almost covers the grading fees I would have had to pay if I sent one in. Also, raw silver American silver eagles at my local coin shop are currently selling for Spot+$12. So I basically paid $8 extra to have it in a slab. I picked out a extremely lustrous MS-69 2013(W) (all of the slabs were MS-69 but there was a couple of different years to choose from). I now have 4 slabbed coins, (listed from cheapest-most expensive) a NGC PF-69 Yosemite ATB Quarter (which I am actually going to be trading soon), a NGC MS-66 1955-S Lincoln Cent, a MS-66 1943-S Silver War Nickel with the "Omaha Bank Hoard" designation, and last but surely not least, the NGC 2013(W) American silver eagle. See all of my slabbed coins in my most-complete registry set here: https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive-sets/334718/?page=2


I recently discovered something about the NGC Registry. If you have a coin, lets say for example a NGC MS-69 2013(W) Silver eagle (haha) that you really want to use in a certain registry set, but it doesn't show up as a qualified coin (in my case, my coin would have been qualified if it had the "Early Release" designation) you can simply request that the coin be reviewed to see it it is acceptable, and a lot of times (I have now requested two coins into registry sets, and both were accepted), as long as the coin is the right type, it will be accepted and added to your registry set in a day or so. I also had to request my PF-69 Yosemite ATB quarter into a set {Basic US Type Set (No Gold)} the coin didn't originally qualify because it wasn't silver, but now it along with my other three NGC coins, is in my basic type set!


Thanks a lot for reading this blog, enjoy the pics (as always), and have a splendid day!

Send a coin to be slabed now they just finished with April deliverys. Still have to be graded. Any way you want them. It's up to the person. I never had a coin refused in my registry set. I have some P.C.G.S. Coins in my registry. I never write down what I have in my registry. My two Conder sets have had almost 1700 people view them. Those I'm proud of. Hard work but I enjoy them. What ever you collect. At least with a registry set I know were they are!!.

Thanks enjoyed your blog. I would rather buy a slabbed coin than pay for one to get slabbed. I'd rather put my money into obtaining coins rather than pay to slab and grade. I'm kind of dubious about the whole graded coin thing anyway. Or I'm ambivalent. I can't decide! HA! Ha! Ha!

Nicely done. NGC will also accept PCGS coins the same way. The big guys don't pay what we do for a slab. Not even close. Keep it up.
