Scenario: Have a coin (early copper) that currently resides in PCGS 55 OGH with a CAC Gold sticker. Now everybody knows that CAC gold coins usually kick but in auction. However, my question is that normally most auction companies Incl with whom I am working now , bring coins or have them available at the larger shows for viewers (potential bidders) to see. Currently, with Covid, this is not really happening at the moment. This coin is exceptional, slam dunk solid 62, not only was this given the opinion years ago by David Hall at Pcgs, but also John Albanese of CAC when he stickered it. So my question, do you risk putting it in auction now with limited viewing except for on line and/or catalog photos, or wait till things normalize where potential bidders can see this coin in hand, this coin has to been seen to appreciate the quality, and upgrade potential. There is significant value difference from 55 to 62. While owning it, I preferred it in the OGH gold holder, but selling it , maybe different? or leave it in the current holder and hope for the best. It is currently, the only CAC gold of this date period in any grade.
Which comes back around to original question, PCGS submission will not let you specify a reconsideration for a min grade several grades higher, is this correct? , as my understanding its only by full point ,+, or designation etc. ?
Any thoughts much appreciated!
