...they said my post was “confusing”...:):)...when coin is properly stored, luster developed itself into nice crusty preservation of the coin and gives “confidence” that will not change over the time...and if looks nice, uncirculated then it gets high grade...coins straight out of sets might even look nice and not even have any scratches, still get low grade just because of lacking of confidence that will not change over the time and become “ugly” coin with a high grade.....:):)...bottom line...it’s about PCGS integrity, coins trades and coins values...

    This sign makes more sense than this thread.

    You just don't understand it because your coins don't have “confidence”. :D

    You have to smell the 69s... when you're blind

    If you don't crimp the staples on the 2x2's there's a good chance you'll be smelling "Scratched UNC - Details" :D

    Not saying irresponsible, they're your coins.

    It's just that failing to crimp the staples is something you would expect from a newer collectors. I didn't expect that an experienced collector would leave the staples exposed and risk damaging his/her coins, especially when it's very easy to significantly reduce the risk. Oh well, you learn something new everyday.

    It's dinnertime.
    I am now confident.
    I have a less crusty dime in my pocket too.

    Some coins are just plain "Interesting"

    Maybe I'm missing something but in my world view, coins don't develop luster. It's imparted at the time of striking and, at that very instant, the coin is as lustrous as it will ever be. Some coins end up with almost none (DMPLs, for instance), satiny luster from new dies, or deep, blooming luster that is often seen with older dies.

    Patina, toning, corrosion, whatever you want to call it...... that can develop over time, yes. Strong toning can obscure luster. Some toning patterns seem to accentuate luster. Repeated cycles of toning and dipping can impair luster. Wear tremendously impairs luster.

    But, as others have said, I'm not really sure what this thread is about.

    The OP has me reaching for my trusty advisor, but he isn't reassuring:

    "Got a flaming heart, can't get my fill"
