This is a submission form from when ANACS issued photo certificates.

Need a Barber Half with ANACS photo certificate. If you have one for sale please PM me. Current Ebay auctions

    From the image...

    Authentication/grading for a $100 coin = $13.10. Using the BLS inflation calculator, $13.10 in 1985 = $34.50 today. Currently, a coin valued at $260 (equal to $100 in 1985) costs $22 for grading/authentication at economy level.

    Still want to pay fees like that? ;)

    I would have been just as confused by the forms back then as I am today. :D

    Were there separate fees for authentication and grading? Why not combine them? How many people opted for authentication only? :|

    I exercised some stock options back in 1987 for a home big screen home theater. It was about $7500. If I kept the stock and sold it today that system cost me $80,000! What really makes it bad, I have none of the components. You can never look back unless you can get into a DeLorean, it will only make you depressed!

    The only thing that remains the same is change..... You can think back to when you were a kid, and the adults saying how much things had changed.... It is a continuing process. Now, if we could look forward, opportunities abound.
    Cheers, RickO

    I'd love to pay $5.30 for registered postage on a $2000 package again.

    I think in 1983 I paid $500 for a second floppy drive for my Apple ][ computer. That would be real money today! I should have invested in a 1916 D dime.

    Should have invested in Apple, period. 16 cents a share back in 1983.
