Coin Geek on PCGS crossover attempts

What type of selectivity do you use before attempting these crossovers since the cost of every failure is pretty significant?

    Interesting video. Hard to believe a dealer would submit total dreck and expect pcgs to reward his bad submission behavior. Why would anyone dump more money into these “coffin” coins? Needless to say, I agree with every dnc decision by PCGS, and argue that most are details coins.

    Opinions, opinions, opinions ... this is what the coin market is today. I thought the 1898 dime should have crossed but not most of the rest. I'm surprised the Seated Half was submitted as it was obviously cleaned (as so many Seated Halves are).

    All glory is fleeting.

    The long though mostly hidden scratch on the Barber dime/NGC MS64 was clear to me, curious why he missed it. This shows how people who some regard as "experts" need to have sharp graders around before money like that is wasted.

    Random thought: I suspect more videos of pcgs submission reveals on YouTube would bring in some younger folks that may have a curiosity about numismatics.

    Don’t underestimate the number of customers he has that pay to have him send crazy stuff to PCGS just to facilitate a video.

    How do you know he missed the scratch? Maybe he was well aware of it and more forgiving of it than you appear to be.

    I believe I bought a pcgs slabbed coin from this dealer several years ago and actually upgraded it with pcgs, so it’s somewhat ironic (if he’s truly sincere in the video) that he doesn’t necessarily understand why his coins didn’t cross. He should hire me because I’d make his shop a lot of profit.

    Agreed. Any numismatic content on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or TikTok is going to help facilitate some younger collectors into the hobby. Not gonna convince many 14 year olds to go to a coin show, but they do spend all day on their phone.

    Well especially with the lower value lower grade coins, just go for the crack out.

    Had it been a serious crossover, not an entertaining one it would have had more value, ie a cross at any grade submission, which in the past has had a high success rate for me.

    Some of us take are gamble’s but we know going in it may pop or we are not going to do it that is a smart collector. Now a dumb collector will send in a coin that has no chance and keep spending the money for nothing with no gain in sight.

    Some one here should do a how to video on how to buy a coin raw or in a holder then crack it out then flip it for a profit then buy the coin they really wanted at a discount. It takes work but nothing is free, time is money but what we do is fun to us.



    Hoard the keys.
