Just thought I'd share.



I used to be somebody, now I'm just a coin collector.
Recipient of the coveted "You Suck" award, April 2009 for cherrypicking a 1833 CBHD LM-5 for $260. And again in Aug 2012 for picking off a 1952 FS-902 for $27!

    OK with one exception!

    Probably, but not for a couple of weeks.

    My initial thought, exactly.

    Got Crust....y gold?
  • SanctionIISanctionII Posts: 8,929 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looking at the grades of the coins, both MS and Proof, reveals that all but 5 coins graded betweenn 64 to 66.

    One MS 62, two MS 63, one PF 67 and one PF 68 DCAM.

    I wonder how many would grade higher (or lower) if graded today?

    Please put aside the '61 rattler in PR67 for me.

    Much as I'm a fan of Franklins, and like the group that you purchased, WHO in their right mind would have sent these coin in to be CAC'ed? I mean really, 1963 PR65 Franklins with no cameo? Even if they got a gold bean, talk about a waste of money. Most of the others are just as bad a waste of money even if they got a gold bean (which as far as I can see they didn't).
