Who thinks that PCGS or NGC will slab my Kennedy's?
« on: February 04, 2010, 11:52:57 AM »
I am bringing my my Kennedy set it to the Long Beach show to see if they will grade it.
I have not messed around with the color in anyway and think they are beautiful.
Hopefully PCGS will slab them because I want them to image the set ;)







Here is the holders in sat in all this time

Iffy with the current 1692 atomosphere regarding toning at the TPGs. The 87 has probably the lowest chance of holdering.

What do the reverses look like?

I turned the 87 into the light to show more of the toning.
The reverse are mostly white with a few having a small rim toning.

Very interesting side note.......A member (the one who works in the ANA museum)ATS stated that
they have the exact set with the same toning ;)
Now, isn't NGC tied in somehow with the ANA :HMMMMM;

Yes, NGC is the offical TPG of ANA. If you are an ANA member you may submit coins to NGC without having to join their collectors club or dealer program.

"Elite" membership at NGC costs $249 per year; "Premier" membership costs $109 per year; "Associate" membership costs $39 per year.

Associate: Direct submission privileges; access to the NGC Census; submissioin tracking

Premier: All of the above plus 5 free Early Bird gradings ($150 value)

Elite: Same as Premier plus 10% discount on all other submissions.

As an ANA member, you don't have any of these privileges.

I didn't renew my PCGS membership when they discontinued the RCMR. I'm only an hour south of NGC's headquarters.

I'd consider NGC except to those durned claw-like holder tabs. :( 

As for the OP, I don't have much trust left in PCGS for NT/AT opinion as they seem to have changed (or tightened) standards.  If there were more consistency, then I would have more respect for the service provided. This opinion is based on reading of the experiences of others, not my personal experience. I know, that doesn't help much, but I have become suspicious of the TPG's motivations of late.

I guess that my simple answer is that I would expect them to judge them conservatively.

It's my understanding that you can request another style holder instead of the "Edge View". If you have any questions, call them..........1-800-642-2646.

Well, I met with Mr. Willis and he said to submit but no promises.....HA, like I didn't
know that. He stated that the coins looked "wiped" well....I beg to differ!!!
They do not look nor were they "wiped" its just streaky toning.

So I took a chance and submitted 17 of them ??? ???
