Something highly unusual at a coin show
Yesterday I attended the Venice, FL show. This isn't a show report as this show is very small and I didn't stay long. As a side note, congratulations to the Venice coin club on their 60 years in existence.
Anyhow, I saw a PCGS-holdered coin with the green CAC sticker scraped off! I forget what the coin was but was very surprised to see the sticker gone, and I am 100% sure that it wasn't from wear, as some of the scraping marks were visible outside of the outlines of the bean, with green flecks remaining in the residue from that familiar oval pattern.
This is tantamount to instantly eliminating 20% or more of the coin's retail value, given CAC premiums these days. I'm still scratching my head on this one. It seems like coin heresy....
