FUN Show Grading Results (Photos added)
I figured I would post how the FUN show grading went for me. Note: Submissions were taken back to CA and shipped back for free as part of the service since there was no on-site grading.
I submitted 4 condition census coins for reconsideration of a “+”. They were all CAC early gold I didn’t want to risk a full upgrade and losing the sticker and the value/liquidity that comes with it. Note, for all four coins there were no “+” coins in the grade. I also submitted each coin individually as to try to limit bias and also since shipping was free anyway. (yes, they did actually send 4 separate packages).
Results: 1 of 4 upgraded. I was happy with this result based on the current value and standing of the coins in the condition census. The upgraded coin is now #4 in the condition census, top pop CAC, and R7 variety as a little extra icing on the cake.
Note: Two of the coins submitted came back from CAC previously with notes on them being “wow” coins. Neither of those received the plus.
In my opinion all 4 coins will upgrade eventually since they are all light years ahead in quality for the grade from anything I’ve seen on Coinfacts or in person in a really long time, if ever. You just have to play the game as they say.
See photos…..anyone want to guess which one upgraded?
