    Next time ask nicely. I did, and they told me it graded 65.

    I did ask nicely and was told she could not tell ?

    ...crossed from an ICG 66 holder

    ICG 66 to PCGS 65 doesn't seem too disappointing in the scheme of things...

    -- Did you view the piece in hand before buying?

    -- What grade were you thinking/hoping for once you had it and sent it in?

    -- Did you send it in the ICG slab or cracked out??

    Pretty, mark-free reverse in particular.

    Side note - r/mildlyinfuriating that the dragon side is rotated totally goofy (~45 degrees) in the TrueView (assuming not actual die rotation?). I'd be emailing them post haste!

    >

    It was a old ICG holder ( I was told the main grader for them during that time was well respected

    -- Did you view the piece in hand before buying?

    Yes I did

    -- What grade were you thinking/hoping for once you had it and sent it in?

    I thought it had a shot at 65+

    -- Did you send it in the ICG slab or cracked out??

    Sent it in the slab
    May have hurt my chances by doing that

    Pretty, mark-free reverse in particular.

    Also the obverse as well…

    Am I the only one laughing about this...because 65 this is what the coin graded.

    I’m certainly curious to know now?

    Of course I was serious. Coin grading is no laughing matter.

    Maybe there some details I'm missing because I didn't know you could call and find out details on someone else's coin submission. Now my assumptions on your post is that Bidask owned the coin and you were calling about a coin that he owned. So I totally thought you were joking with Dan the whole time.
