Yes, that "Anticipation" factor has kicked in once again.

Hi guy's, yep like I had in one of my old threads. About how when us collectors submit our coins in to PCGS. That ole anticipation feeling kicks in our emotions. Waiting, hoping and worrying if, when and HOW our coins will come back? First, we're worried if they make it safely to our Host. Then we worry if they arrive at our front door safely. Then we worry if they'll straight grade. Then we worry what grade we will mercifully receive from the graders. It can be nerve wracking but enjoyable at the same time. January 11, is when I submitted 3 coins, also 3 coins for my dealer friend, as well. At least as of 4 days ago. PCGS has confirmed they received them! Part one of the worrying aspect. Now comes the waiting game for the grades. Lol. Getting grayer by the moment. The three coins I sent in are, the 1942d Horizontal d over d Jefferson. The 1997p "Doubled Ear" Cent variety. That's the one I'm worried about the most. Then the 2020 Quarter Tallgrass Prairie "W" Mint mark. I'm a little concerned about the Jefferson being straight graded as well? I'll post my news, good or bad, as soon as I get confirmation. Thanks guys. How 'bout you guys? Same emotions? Lol - Joey :#

1997p Doubled Ear



The best one out of the 4

Then the "W".

    Joey, If you were born 200 years ago you could have started a religion.

    Reading the early life of Joe(y)eph Smith.

    You remind me of a modern version of him (that's not a terrible thing).

    Let us now open up the Book of Slabbing to Joey 19:42(d). "Keep faith through the entirety of the encapsulation process for though the Grader may tarry, there is wisdom and security in the return." Amen, and keep cents.

    And unto the graders they go, into a pile of submissions as great as the sea of Galilee. And his name, in vein I cried, LORD have mercy on my coins!

    Instead of golden plates, Joey's are copper-coated zinc.

    Had Joey been around in biblical times the Widow's Mite would have been retrieved and checked for varieties. :smiley:

    What do you mean? You sent yours in way back then and you're still waiting? Or are you sitting on it waiting to send in? :*

    I just send them off and don't worry about it or really think about it too much after they are in the mail.
    They will either get the grades right (agree with my assessment), or, get it wrong (disagree).
    Either way, not a life-changing event.
    They'll get graded when they get graded and I will get them when I get them.
    That's how I look at it.
    No anticipation, really.

    Great attitude and perspective. You're right, I shouldn't let it get to me. It's really the package in both routes that I focus on the most. Esp. In today's world. Thanks for easing my mind a bit. Lol. :)

    Patience is a virtue.... Relax.... You have zero control over the situation now... Focus on things you enjoy or can control. Cheers, RickO

    Anticipation is part of the fun. I haven't sent anything in for slabbing in a really long time, mostly because of PCGS' ridiculous price increase on tokens and medals. Makes it hard to justify grading the vast majority of exonumia.

    Yes, totally agree. Worrisome but fun. Almost like that exhilarating rollercoaster ride. Scary and frightening but a whole lotta FUN!

    Did you contact them? That's horrible. Hope you receive shortly. The "Anticipation", I'm sure turned into the worrisome emotion? Good Luck. :)
