World sub in the works and my guesses for the grades.

So a bit frightening to post here before grades are in since I could be really off or end up with details coins or the worst being fakes. However I wanted to share here so I could compare with my guesses later is a blatantly honest way.

So I didn't do a great job getting photos of these before I sent them in for being subbed but most can be found here hosted on imgur I urge you to check them out as well and let me know what you think:

As far as my guesses I marked up a screen shot of the sub here while things are processing:

Even since I have subbed these I have thought a few guesses were too high. The two 1787 6 pences and the 1863/2 8 Sol but I will keep them as I initially thought rather than obsessing over them.

There are others coins on this sub, not just my own so I won't post the order number or anything but here's a screenshot to show where it is now. I will of course update with another one once grades are posted.

Feel free to let me know what you think and I will check back in once grades are posted. I suspect sometime in late February.

    coin photography is challenging... You have some attractive submission candidates- I did not see the Irish shillings. The 1893 and 1902 shillings look attractive so there is reason to be optimistic. The 1787 6d coins look as if an MS grade is reasonable- not sure of where they end up. I would like to see the South African shilling in hand- that grade will largely depend on the quality of the fields/surfaces

    Best wishes with the grade results...

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    The irish shillings are not imaged. I really just didn't even photograph them because those clad ones are worth so little. Grading fees are mostly wasted on them but I need them for the set. Thanks for the feedback.

    Nice sub. Digging those 6d's. Did you remove the black stuff on the Bolivian prior to submitting?

    As someone who rarely sees these coins in hand, I did not. :(
