    @wrighty... You say "Mixed results"... Can you share your expectations for each coin? Cheers, RickO

    Here is what I thought
    1853 63 BN
    1914 64 RB
    1915 64 RB
    1915-D AU50
    1919 64RD
    1921 65 RD
    1930 64RB
    1931 64RD
    The only one I got right was the 1931, a few cleaned and a very nice surprise on the 1921. The 1919 is a head scratcher not sure where the damage is?

    Some nice coins there, and a very nice surprise on the 1921 which more than covers the fees you would have been buried in on the Genuines and marginal ones. On the 1919, depending on how big that hit is above the LI on the face, that could be it but also there seems to be something going on around the rim which might be worse on the sides. There are 3 sides to a coin....

    Congrats on the 1921. Like you - the photo is not showing me a significant amount of damage to warrant a no grade.

    Thank you. The 1921 definitely saved the sub

    The 1919 has something going on. The surfaces look odd, maybe smoothed, and there appears to be a dent or something out of the ordinary on Lincoln's head.
    Nice coins overall.

    Agree that the 19 is smoothed. Lincoln’s beard doesn’t look right

    The 21 looks closer to brown than it does red. I’d sell that one and recoup the costs of the entire group.

    I like the 15-D best out of the group. Overall a tough submission that probably wasn’t worth sending in unless it was your 8 voucher coins.

    Agree that the 1919 has been messed with by someone, does not appear to be original surfaces at all. The 21 may have saved you but I'm not all that convinced a copper specialist would pay full red money for it, I can say that from the TV I would not. The 15-D may do well for an everyman set or someone putting together a registry circ set, it looks very nice.

    The 1919 may have been encased.

    It was my 8 voucher submission and the 21 will cover my purchase and submission costs so not a total loss. I agree with you on the True View’s coins look better in hand especially the 21.

    I see a long scratch and hits below "AMERICA" on the 19. If I had sent the 21 in, it would have received a RB designation.

  • davewesendavewesen Posts: 5,835 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I agree with mixed results

    the 1919 has something funny looking on the obverse in an area from 2 o'clock to 8 o'clock. I am not sure if that is just light reflection and entire coin looks like that or if fields altered there.

    Big dent on Lincolns temple on the 19.
