    One for three on my gold coins.

    Two gold CAC’s (not expected).

    Seven more green beans on the others.

    I definitely thought my 89-S Morgan and 1861 $1 were winners as well but I’m still pleased with the final results.

    Congratulations! And how about the grades and the pics.?

    They were all MS65 except the 1852-O $20, which is AU53.

    I just got the results when I logged in. Coins will be back by next week it looks like.

    Thank you.
    Several coins excite me here:

    1852-O AU53 was just a random purchase by me RAW one night from a German auction house. I felt lucky enough it was not cleaned when it arrived from overseas and now JA agrees it’s solid for the grade. Very happy about this coin.

    Looking at rattler pop report from October of 1989, serval others seem like great scores:
    1884-P had a final population report of 372/27/1.

    1888-P had a final population report of 155/5/2. In rattler this is considered rare.

    1900-O gold CAC had a population of 880/29/2. So assuming you agree gold means solid for the next grade, this would also be rare in rattler.

    I believe at this time CACG states that if you submit a PCGS or NGC coin for crossover to CACG and that coin has a gold CAC sticker on it then CACG will cross it at least one grade higher than the current slab grade. I prefer to keep my gold CAC stickered coins in their PCGS and NGC holders, but some others might not.

    Woohoo! Congrats Johnny!

    Before I opened this thread, I had wondered if this was going to be the origin story for another anti-cac supervillain. I’m glad to see that it’s not 😂.

    Thanks for sharing! 10 out of 17 passed! That's a 59% rate! You definitely had a good eye!

    Fantastic submission!

    Many happy BST transactions
  • logger7logger7 Posts: 7,942 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I remember the 1852-o and the grade and story and the cac stickers certainly buttresses the value.

    Great first submission. Nicely done.

    I remember that thread about the 1852-O. I was practically screaming into my computer monitor for you to not rinse it with acetone!

    As for your overall submission, did you have CAC predictions prior to the submission process? I just looked for my initial CAC submission and I noticed that I wrote a detailed word document with a prediction for every coin. Yes, I am a coin geek, and then I sent the word doc to Mark Feld in an email. This was in 2008 and I still have the data! Ugh...I need a life.

    Not dipping the 1852-O sounded very counterintuitive but I took the advice after looking at a lot of older gold coins. You can tell which CAC appreciates more (original look). Big thanks. Once the coin gets back I’ll post it in the original thread to close it out.

    As for a list. I did exactly that, and wrote down what I thought each coin would achieve. I can tell you I did not expect any gold CACs. When I get back from my travels this week I’ll post up my notes.
