The term "made" is a subtle way of gloating that the coin was RIPPED for a price well under the grade OPINION subsequently assigned by a TPGS.

My take on "made" just means that someone purchased it raw and they "made" it because they were the first to have it slabbed.

Yes this is what I do buy rolls and try to make high grades but I guss you can crack out a holder and call it a Rip. But most call it a crack out but that is just me.

Made means they got a raw coin into a slab. Dumb expression since they didn't actually make the coin.

That's usually the context I've seen it in.

Actually, I believe that it means that you got the grade that you expected. You bought it raw as a 64 and PCGS gave it a 64. If they had given it a 62 then you wouldn't have made the coin IMO.

A raw coin, bought then sent in for grading. I dont think its only for the coins bought as a specific grade, then slabbed at that grade.

Actually Tom, then you would have made a 62. It is most often used to discuss top grade coins such as:

"I see there is now a 68 in the pop report, I wonder who made it?"

"I only got 2 66s back out of a submission of 300 sets but xxx told me he made 4 with half the coins, lucky ba$tard."

"I've been submitting for 19 years and I've only made one top pop coin."

It doesn't take any great shakes to send a coin in for grading; hell anyone can go to a bank and get a roll of kerters, send em in and say they made the coins. Going to a show, picking out 20 nice raw Morgans and submitting them and getting no bodybaggers and all 65s now that to me is makin the coins. Everytime I have seen the term used it was always in the context of I got the grade I thought I'd get so thats what I define it as. Whether that is right or wrong doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.

I used homemade in my set descriptions, maybe I should change them to made.

I suppose the fact that some can send in 2 coins without getting a BB is a great accomplishment.

Same thing with CAC I suppose. You take the first 20 Morgans in your set, send em in and get one green bean. Great cuz you made a CACd coin. Doesn't say much about the other 19 or even the rest of your set does it? Now if you carefully pick the 20 nicest coins and get 19 beaned then you can truly be said to have made 19 CACd coins the way I see it.
