Thoughts on this newp - CAC results in first post
I have been looking for a $3 piece for my gold type set. I saw this and thought it looked relatively unprocessed and also mark free for the grade. What are your thoughts? I know it might be hard to tell from the Truview, but it appears unmolested. I think it is worth sending to CAC
As promised, the results. Gathered the few coins I had purchased in the last few months and sent five coins in total to CAC mostly to see how the $3 would do. I asked JA for feedback if it didn't make it. Got it back as not passed and a sticker to call JA to discuss. He said in terms of contacts it looks like a 65, but there are hairlines in the fields that hold it back. I set up the lighting conditions that JA suggested and compared it side by side to a CAC 64 $3 and I can see the difference in the fields between the two. Very helpful to have JA explain what he saw and another valuable benefit of using CAC services. His comments will make me a better evaluator of gold coins in the future.
