Virtual TAG #3 Has Started****New Participants Always Welcome
This one will run for just over 1 Month, November 12th - Dec 14th, making for a nice Christmas for us coin nuts.
All I ask is that packages be shipped so that they arrive in time for Christmas....no Scrooges.
Those that have been in my previous Virtual Tags know the routine, fairly simple.
Those that have yet to try it and would like to understand how it work, here are the rules:
Virtual Tag Rules:
1) Coins listed should remain in the Tag for the duration of the Tag.
Just making it fair to all that participate here.
This is a (virtual) 'Tag', not a trade post for someone to 'snipe' a coin away without being a participant.
More coins may be added at any time, possibly to make a 'Tag' with another member possible, but once added the coin(s) need remain in the Tag.
Please PM me with your additions so as to keep this post as short as possible.
**1a) Participants, please do not entertain offers for the coins you have listed unless the member has coins listed on this tag, although the coins may be different than the ones offered you.
Once the Tag is agreed upon, those 'different' coins need to be added to the Tag list.
--Remember, even though the coins are listed in the Tag, the 'owner' does NOT have to agree to Tag them again.
2) There is no restriction on the type of coins included.
Slabbed, Raw, Classic, Modern, even Darkside are all welcome.
Just be honest in the description of the coin(s) involved, especially raw coins.
Pictures are nice when dealing with raw coinage if it is a better date/series.
3) Participants should deal directly with the ‘owner’ of the coin, regardless of who ‘holds’ the coin.
In other words, if a deal has been made for a coin, the original coin owner is now just the ‘holder’ of the coin, and there is a new ‘owner’.
If you are interested in this coin, deal with the new ‘owner’.
I will list coins by ‘owner’, and list the ‘holder’ of the coin in parenthesis to keep track of coin's status.
I must be contacted when a TAG is made.
This is to keep the list of 'Holder' & 'Owner' up to date.
4) There is no set guide for values.
I would suggest recent completed auctions as a basis (eBay, Heritage, TT, etc.), but in the end the 2 members should do their homework before agreeing on the Tag.
Because the coin(s) may continue to be Tagged, please be sure you are agreeable with the Tag before saying OK.
5) Want lists welcome.
This Tag has an emphasis on helping with sets, whether registry or personal. There will be a link to the participants’ want list. This way others can add coins if they see another member wants a coin they may have that is not currently on their Tag. Again, the coins have to stay in the Tag until the Tag is over, but the ‘owner’ only has to entertain offers, not accept it.
6) Sign-Ups being taken up to the end of the TAG. New blood is always welcome.
No need for 'Approval'. Once the TAG is over the 2 persons involved in a TAG exchange info just like a regular trade.
If someone has a 'feeling' about another member, JUST SAY NO.
7) Once the TAG has officially ended, the 'owner' of the coin contacts the 'holder' of the coin(or vise-versa).
Information is exchanged & the coin is shipped to the new 'owner'.
Very much a trade scenario at this point, but the coins involved may not be a simple 'yours-for-mine' as coins may have been tagged multiple times.
Don't worry, I will keep track of who has what, as long as I'm informed when a TAG is made.
8) SHIP THE COINS INSURED.....DELIVERY CONF. is nice too.
Unless it's a really small TAG value-wise, insure.
Sender is responsible for delivery. If something happens & the package never arrives to it's intended destination, sender is responsible for the return of coins or an outright purchase.
9) Satisfaction Guarantee
Should go without saying, but the recipient should be happy with the tag, so all members participating need to agree on a 'no-questions asked' return policy.
AND all members must agree to 'once opened' the coin is 'sold'. 'Opened' policy mainly applies to raw coins, but you get the idea. If you don't like the coin, tell the member who sent it to you right away.
If one member does not like the coin(s), but the other does, maybe a purchase can be arranged......but that's up to the 2 participants.
If you have Photos, I will throw a link onto the description of the coin if you email me with the links.
This way I can copy & paste, even if it's a link to a CU hosted image.
PLEASE PM me if you have any questions, I am trying to keep this post as clean as possible.
Those that would like to try this out, please PM me with the coins that you would like included.
I will copy & paste the PM into the post, or link, depending on the number of participants.
Since this takes a bit of doing to get the TAG set-up....links, pictures & the like....I am starting this TAG next Friday, Oct. 2nd.
If you'd like to participate, get you list going now.
Lastly, to help me out with 'copy & paste', I'd like to request that your list be formatted as such...
Graded coin first....
$1 1884-O PCGS MS63 (Nice Obv Toning)
Denomination first (starting with the highest denomination)
SMALL Comment if needed.
Then RAW coins.
Lastly if you have a want list, add that.
There it is!!
Sign ups being taken as of now.
