Another World Coin Submission...
I had fun sharing my experience with a submission about a year and a half ago. You can review that thread here.
I just put in another 10 coin submission in yesterday, which reflects most of my activity since that last submission. A couple observations this go around:
- The PDF form was WAY easier to fill out. I'm not exactly sure when this change happened but it seemed a lot easier (and didn't ask for the PSG number!).
- I think I figured registered mail in terms of packaging, tape, filling form out. My time spent running around was much shorter this time.
Here are the coins with a hodge podge of photos. Any feedback welcome:
1. 1625 Bavarian Taler. Raw. Auction purchase. Nice delicate patina in hand. Probably dipped at some point and then retoning a little. Hoping for AU55-62
1637 Wildman Taler. Raw purchase from Kunker via MA-Shops. Mostly original. Hoping for VF-XF.
1616 Wildman Taler. Raw. Auction purchase. Dipped but still crusty. I like the Wildman portrait on this one. Hoping for XF-AU.
1603 Teutonic Order Taler. NGC 53. Purchased from @TPRC. The holder had many fine lines I could not buff out, and the coin is really beautiful (but hard to see with the holder). So I cracked it out and am submitting raw. Excited for the TrueView in time. I suspect that the coin is more 45-50, but got a bump from NGC given the originality and color. Hoping for AU50 on this one.
1596 "Lie Taler" in NGC XF45, purchased from HA. Cracked out and submitting raw. Based on quality of manufacture I think this one could go higher at PCGS.
1736 Austrian Taler. Raw, auction purchase. The observe has been cleaned slightly - jeweler's cloth or something similar. Some retoning. But the reverse is untouched and uncirculated, really immaculate. I hope this straight grades.
1691 Salzburg 3 Kreuzer. Raw, auction purchase. This is a small coin, toned, lots of luster. I think it is MS but curious what it will go. Not a good picture:
1696 Hungary 3 Kreuzer. Raw, auction purchase. Not a rare coin but really a jewel. Hoping for MS64.
1675 12 mariengroschen. Purchased via MA-shops. Dipped at one point, some retoning, but very nicely detailed. Hoping it straight grades MS.
1921 Thale Am Harz 50 pfennig. I thought this modern wildman coin was kinda cool. About the size of a quarter and I think zinc (made in post WWI Germany), hard to assess grade, could see 58-63.
