My recent PSE submission results.

Hey someone post a link, order# 20161734 Submission# 1070103. I assume this would be with shared orders(I have all of mine ticked to be shared)
A few questionable grades and a few nice ones.

    I don't believe anyone can access the shared orders yet, atleast I can't. If you copy(ctrl+C) the link and then hit "http" in the reply you can paste(ctrl+V) the link in that window, be sure not to include "http//" twice and then enter in a word(hyperlink) to be assosciated with the link. We should be able to see it then. I'm interested to see what you got. Good luck with the link!!

    I'm too inept for that, I need a computer class. www.psestamp.com/membership/order.html?OrderNo=20161734

    Nope...that didn't work either. How about just copying(ctrl+C) the entire page that has your grades and just pasting(ctrl+V) them right in your reply, just like you normally would reply to a thread. I'M WAITING!!..lol just kidding.

    I really question the grades on the one of the #514's and the #698, take a look at the stamps for yourself with cert verification.

    Nice grades!! That 585 is pretty sweet. I didn't look at all of them, but I did look at the ones you mentioned. I think the later 514 could have easily been a 98. I think there is a fine line between a stamp being a 85 or a 95, just as there is a fine line between 90's and 98's. Same goes for the 698. I guess they thought the top margin was just a hair wider than the left and right. Close to a 95 though. I've seen worse get graded higher. Nice stamps though, congrats!

    Yeah not too bad. The 698 should have been a 95 or at least a 90 jumbo (look at some of the 95's and 98's awarded for others from this tiny margin rotary issue) One of the #514's I expected a 90 on but the other I thought was surely a 95. The 686 98 is a line pair so it's hard to do much better on that. The rest were bout what I expected. Most 98's I ever got on one submission even if some are common stamps. Well anyway gotta go to bed, sucks working third shift sometimes.

    Nice job. Concerning the two that you thought would grade better, have you ever resubmitted raw and see if it comes back different. I know this is pretty common with coins. Also the rumor if you get a large submitter to send in, you will get higher grades, but I haven't had that luxury to test that theory out.

    Doug, it gets kind of expensive to do that unless the stamps in question have alot of value. The 585 is from that block I broke up some time ago, it made up for the other lower grades.
