Wow considering it takes two days to ship (1 each way). I sent the coins on Tuesday afternoon normal overnight. I got them back this morning (Friday - same week). Very nice, I went 6/7. Most were already CAC so I figured they would pass.
ee-ficient is e-agle-e-ye...............
I sent a few in last year, they all passed, and he had them done within two days of me mailing it, but sending back was another story. The mail back was slow.

Don’t assume that it’s almost an “automatic” that Rick @EagleEye will apply his Photo Seal to an IHC that has a CAC sticker!
At the end of 2022, when I completed my high grade “Unique” set of Indian Head Cents (the ONLY set ever put together where EVERY coin has both a CAC sticker AND Rick’s Eagle Eye Photo Seal), I learned early on that while this concept of a coin having both stickers is indeed redundant, John Albanese and Rick Snow each put different weightings on the various factors. As such, there were MANY coins in my search with CAC stickers that Rick would not apply his Photo Seal, and many with Photo Seals that John would not CAC.
Rick puts a heavier weighting on Strike and Die State than John. Rick is also slightly less tolerant of carbon spots on those grading 66 and higher.
In my opinion, while redundant to a great extent, having both stickers on a coin is having the best of both worlds, since that means the coin met the slightly different strict standards of each!
(My IHC set is Current rank #6).
