    In order, guessing 1 and 2 did not CAC but 3 and 4 did.

    If the 1813 didn’t CAC, please dispose of it by sending it to me 😀.

    I’ll let the real experts give their opinions. I can’t figure out the CAC formula.

    Good morning Ken!

    My guesses;

    1. maybe
    2. probably not
    3. God I hope so
    4. probably not

    And that's based on the TV's, which are not very good IMO.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    @pursuitofliberty
    I love your how you guess,😂. That’s pretty much how I feel when I send them coins.

    I also agree about the true views, it hard to judge from them. But my pictures are even worse, so we will use the TVs to save me the embarrassment

    1, 3, 4 CAC
    2, no CAC

  • 1-No, but thank you for trying
    2- They couldn’t find the roll of stickers, “Has anyone seen Susie the Sticker Girl” She was just here, oh well, nope not going to try to find her, we will just pass on this one…
    3- If he used GC and was selling yes, but since he is not, let’s reject this as “Not Worthy of being in the CAC sticker community “.
    4-Yes, let’s give him this one so he comes back again, we get paid for 4 tries and give him 1, we must maintain our 25% or less worthiness of being a member of our self anointed “snooty club”

    I believe you should have gotten 3/4 but I think (and it’s quite early for that exercise) you received 1 out of 4 and 4 being the winner! 🏆

    1813 CAC

    Top 25 Type Set 1792 to present

    Top 10 Cal Fractional Type Set

    successful BST with Ankurj, BigAl, Bullsitter, CommemKing, DCW(7), Elmerfusterpuck, Joelewis, Mach1ne, Minuteman810430, Modcrewman, Nankraut, Nederveit2, Philographer(5), Realgator, Silverpop, SurfinxHI, TomB and Yorkshireman(3)

  • I’m half tempted to say none of them. But I think they found the skin original enough on 2 and 4,, but it was close on 2, so if they were graded any day except Friday I’ll say only #4 stickered, if it was Friday I think they gave #2 as well.

  • SmudgeSmudge Posts: 9,161 ✭✭✭✭✭

    3 did.

  • TomBTomB Posts: 20,605 ✭✭✭✭✭

    If this is just a binary yes/no question then-

    1) Yes
    2) No
    3) Yes
    4) No

    Since we are guessing from True Views (not a true indication of the coins in many cases) I believe none stickered. I like #4 quite a bit but rim bumps will hurt it in my opinion. Hope I'm wrong.

  • jp84jp84 Posts: 175 ✭✭✭

    No, Yes, Yes, Yes.

    I played "did it sticker" last week, and didn't enjoy the game. So I won't even try here. But I will note, without further comment, that the fact that the guesses, by people confident enough in their understanding of the mysterious ways of CAC to be making guesses, are all over the place shows that I am not the only one for whom said mysterious ways are opaque.

    No

  • johnny010johnny010 Posts: 1,037 ✭✭✭✭✭

    johnny O10 .. I agree

    No, no, yes, no.

    Thanks for your notes Ken. Please show a few more!

    I figured the 1810 image didn't do it justice.

    The 1817 is a very nice F15 technically, overall (IMO), so a bean doesn't surprise me on that merit, but the rim dings and bruises seemed to preclude it.

    Just another few data points ... that won't make any sense later! :D

    I have talked with dealers who say you may as well flip a coin. I am beginning to think they are right.

    I don't know, I think statements such as that are just sour grapes. When folks get what they expected then they claim things are accurate at CAC, NGC, PCGS or CACG. However, when they don't get the grades or evaluations they want then everything is chance or how the grader slept the night before or if it was the day before a weekend or it's a flip of the coin.

    3 looks like a CAC all day.
    4 with the rim ding is why I said no; otherwise, nice coin.

  • DisneyFanDisneyFan Posts: 1,537 ✭✭✭✭✭

    3. Looks artificially toned

    4. If #4 is a true F15, #2 is not.

    1. Looks nice; but, I can't grade

    Don't ask me why my answers are appearing in huge letters.

  • Pnies20Pnies20 Posts: 1,955 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It’s pretty obvious that JA values crusty, original bust halves above all else in the series.

    But sometimes there’s coins that don’t sticker or only get a green sticker and I think… ok cmon now…

    BHNC #248 … 103 and counting.

  • BigtreeBigtree Posts: 192 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I appreciate the use of fresh PCGS TVs for this exercise. Really levels the playing field for those like me who have no clue what we’re doing :D

  • jayPemjayPem Posts: 3,978 ✭✭✭✭✭

    All 4 are coins I would happily buy without CAC approval..
    Although i would really love the
    13-103 if it was in a 35 holder rather than the 40 😂

    I was at No, No, No, Yes.
