My CAC submission 100% stickered

I submitted my Lincoln cents in mint state 1909 - 1934 with a few duplicates
Every coin got a green bean sticker and only one gold sticker
There was about 80 coins

    Why am I not surprised? Well ... I take that back. I am surprised more did not get gold stickers.

    I'm in the "why not more gold stickers" camp. :D

    Have you submitted the IHC's? I'm betting "The Princess" goes gold.

    Congrats, not unexpected but 80 for 80 is exceptional. Your submission results top my 92% rate.

    I wonder if 80 for 80 is some kind of record.

    Pretty remarkable really, so congratulations! My rate is somewhere between 70-85%, depending on whether I include all submissions, or just the ones I believed would sticker. And I am happy with that, even though I have had some surprises among my submissions, including 2 golds that I was not sure would even green sticker. So a perfect score is pretty special.

    You are the man, Stewart. JA probably would do well having you on board. (Not that you need a job placing stickers ;). )

    Great results! Stewart, can you tell us abit about you selection criteria? For example, about how many coins did you go through per date until you found the one? Did you solicit second opinions? Were there any "instant disqualifiers?" (spots, marks of a certain type, etc)

    Good for you, now what about those you considered board line? I have found that I am more critical of coins then others so perhaps you have many more Gems yet to send in.

    Best place to buy !

    If a major dealer assembled the group like Warren from RCNH or Eagle eye, not surprised. That would be a feat for a cherry picking collector. All there for grade, no "issues", etc. on small coins, not an easy job.

    Great results - but why are the coins going to CAC when you already know they are PQ?

    The only way I'd send a bunch of my coins to CAC is if I was selling them.

    It sounds like you need to have a massive reconsideration submission in the future. Not now though! I would wait until this current tightening cycle ends.

    Stewart, 80/80 with CAC may never be surpassed. Your eye for RD copper may be the best........ And considering the amount of enhanced RD graded copper that is a great credential. True RD copper is more of a rarity than is commonaly understood..

    I know, his coins were pregraded by analyst! :o

    Folks Stewart is the perfect example of paying for quality and holding. Don't always be in such a rush to upgrade. I know if he sold, I'd be in the front row seat to buy.

    Your OGH cents are probably now worth less since 79 of them will seem non up-gradable to many ;)>:)
