NGC Adds to its Numismento Line

By: Scott Barman Coin Collectors Blog (CoinsBlog.ws)

Going through my email, I found a note from Numismatic Guarantee Corporation announcing a new label for the 10-coin 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set. The label has the image of “Ye Olde Mint,” the mid-19th century picture of the original U.S. Mint building in Philadelphia. Funny thing is that the outrage of putting a […]

Follow-up: The Volatile State of Online Estate Auctions

February 14, 2017 in Auctions, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Education, Investing, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Rare Coins, USA Coins, World Coins

By: Michael Bugeja News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

Earlier this year I wrote an investigative analysis titled “The Volatile State of Online Estate Auctions,” noting how tardy technological upgrades in addition to fees from auction portals and credit card companies—often combined with building rent and/or upkeep of onsite facilities—continued to push buyer premiums ever higher.

Shipping has always been an issue with auction houses. Some use third-party shippers. Some do not ship at all.. And a few charge high shipping fees..

These costs were passed to bidders, I noted. At first, auctioneers with onsite clientele did not charge local buyers any fees. Then many had to do so… Full article at the source>

Crack-outs Bring Mixed Results

crackout1880nnc

A regular feature of Coingrader Capsule is the cracking out of slabs by lesser holdering companies to see how they do in the big leagues, namely, PCGS or NGC. Specifically, I wanted to test some coins slabbed by National Numismatic Certification, which I reviewed in September, stating that its grading was inconsistent but, on occasion, good coins can be found encased within. I bid high enough to win these samples:

The 1880 Morgan is difficult to find in gem condition, and this one looked like it might pass muster. At MS-65, PCGS values it at $675.

Registry Riot

November 20, 2016 in Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Education, History, NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation ), Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service)

By: Laura Sperber Legend Numismatics Hot Topics

THINK RATIONAL PEOPLE!

First, let me state I have NEVER been a fan of the Set Registries. I do see they can do some good and are good for record keeping, but I happen to see a lot of negatives. Further, I want to make it clear I do NOT like or support Mark Salzberg of NGC. However, I do fully agree with him banning “other” grading services from NGC Registries, HOWEVER (another big HOWEVER) what he said and his reasoning for the action were childish to the nth degree.

In the beginning when PCGS started its Registry it was all… Full article at the source>

$1 Million of Recently Recovered 1715
Fleet Shipwreck Coins Coming To Market

Sunken Spanish colonial gold treasure coins discovered during 300th anniversary of fleet’s demise to be offered for the first time.

More than 200 sunken treasure gold coins from the legendary Spanish 1715 Plate Fleet, recovered during last year’s 300th anniversary of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane that sank 11 of the fleet’s 12 ships, are now coming into the numismatic marketplace for the first time along with coins found on previous expeditions.  

The discovery of the latest trove by the historic shipwreck recovery company, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels, LLC (www.1715treasurefleet.com), occurred on July 31, 2015, exactly 300 years to the day of the fleet’s sinking.  The treasure was found in only 6 feet of water just a hundred feet from the beach in Vero Beach, Florida, and this amazing find generated international headlines.

The coins range in denomination from one escudo to eight escudos.  They were struck in Colombia, Mexico and Peru and are dated in the era between 1692 and 1715 during the reigns of Spanish Kings Charles II and Philip V.  

“These historic treasure fleet gold pieces have been examined, authenticated and graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com).  All but five are Mint State, and one recovered treasure coin is graded NGC MS 66,” said John Albanese of Bedminster, New Jersey, the dealer who brokered the deal to acquire the never-before offered coins.

Highlights include a 1712 Peru 8 escudos of Philip V, graded NGC MS 64; a 1711 Peru LM  2 escudos of Philip V Peru, NGC MS 66; and a 1699 Colombia 2 escudos of Charles II, NGC MS 64, that was discovered by 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels inside a recovered bronze cannon.

Blanchard and Company (www.BlanchardGold.com) and Monaco Rare Coins (www.MonacoRareCoins.com) are the primary dealerships that will be selling the coins.

“In addition to the 224 coins discovered in 2015 by 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels there are 71 shipwreck coins from the 1715 Fleet found during their two earlier underwater expeditions in 2010 and 2013 that now will also be available to collectors for the first time.  There even are coins they discovered inside a ship’s cannon!,” explained Albanese.

“The combined estimated market value of the 295 treasure coins is more than $1 million,” said Albanese.

1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels is a group of Florida based shipwreck salvors who have focused their attention since 2010 on the exploration and recovery of the famous Spanish treasure fleets convoy.

“Our goal is to bring the amazing story of the 1715 Plate Fleet to the public.  We hope the recovery of these incredibly rare artifacts will help educate people about Spanish colonization of the New World and life on the high seas in 1715,” stated Brent Brisben, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels Co-Founder and Operations Manager

“The discovery of gold and silver coins in sunken cannon in 2010 was an amazing recovery.  For decades, treasure hunters have told tales of treasure hidden inside of cannons, but our recovery was the first time the tale was ever validated. We recovered a 3½ foot bronze rail gun, the first bronze rail/swivel cannon ever recovered from the 1715 Fleet.  We discovered 50 gold and 40 silver coins in the breech of the cannon,” explained Brisben.

Brisben’s great-great-great grandfather, Daniel Beaver, died in another famous shipwreck, the fabled “ship of gold,” the S.S. Central America, that sank off the South Carolina coast in a hurricane in September 1857 while carrying tons of California Gold Rush coins and gold bars to New York City.

NGC has created special insert labels for the 1715 Fleet coins, including a special designation for the coins recovered from the cannon.

“Coinage of the 1715 Fleet offers up rare riches, providing researchers a unique opportunity to study the trade and transport of the day and gives collectors the chance to acquire a high-grade example of a coin from the golden shipwreck treasure of lore. A quantity of uncirculated Spanish gold coins such as this simply does not exist outside of a shipwreck discovery,” stated NGC Chairman Mark Salzberg.

“NGC worked directly with the recovery group to not only preserve the important provenance of these coins, but also the story of their individual recovery. For the first time, specific dive missions and finds are referenced on the NGC certification label,” said Salzberg.

In addition to the NGC encapsulation, each coin will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Brisben, along with the original, numbered archeological tag that was used by the expedition crew to denote each item as it was discovered and recovered.  The unique tag number is indicated on the certificate of authenticity for each coin.

The fabled 1715 Fleet convoy of 12 ships loaded with New World treasure set sail from Havana, Cuba to Spain on July 24, 1715.  In the early morning hours of July 31 a fierce hurricane sank all the ships except one off the eastern coast of Florida.  More than a thousand people were killed in the storm and resulting shipwrecks.  

On July 31, 2015, the 300th anniversary of that historic day, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels recovered 350 gold coins, including nine extremely rare Royals.  Some of the coins were given by the company to its crew-members and subcontractors as their share of the recoveries, and all the large Royals presentation pieces were privately sold earlier this year to anonymous collectors for an average of $275,000 a piece.

“We have owned the exclusive salvage rights to the 1715 Fleet since 2010. We have never previously sold a single gold coin from our recoveries,” said Brisben.  “The story of the fleet is an amazing tale which really provides the fascination with these coins.”

A first-of-its-kind, recently discovered 1795 U.S. Flowing Hair silver dollar (http://coins.ha.com/itm/early-dollars/silver-and-related-dollars/1795-1-flowing-hair-three-leaves-two-mint-silver-plugs-b-5-bb-27-r1-au53-ngc/p/1238-101028.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515) with two separate “plugs” has been authenticated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com) and will be a featured highlight of the Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com) Platinum Night auction at the American Numismatic Association 2016 Anaheim World’s Fair of Money, August 10.

“Many 1795 silver dollars, along with a single 1794 dollar and a small number of 1795 half dollars, show evidence of a Mint-inserted plug, apparently to achieve a correct weight for the planchet prior to striking.  Today, for the first time, we have a 1795 Flowing Hair dollar that has two Mint-inserted silver plugs, one at the center of the obverse and the other at the lower reverse,” said Mark Borckardt, Heritage Senior Cataloger.

“Each of the two plugs has a diameter of about 4 millimeters.  The obverse plug is located on Liberty’s neck, tangent to the jaw line which appears through the plug.  The reverse plug is located between the ribbon ends,” he explained.

The coin has been certified and graded NGC AU53 and is designated as 1795 dollar Flowing Hair, Three Leaves variety B-5, BB-27, R-1.

“Most numismatic researchers today agree that silver plugs were added to adjust the weight of the planchets.  While we don’t know the exact process used at the Philadelphia Mint in 1795, we assume an underweight planchet was pierced and a silver pin fastened to the planchet by means of smooth ‘dies’ in a screw press.  Apparently, the first plug on this coin was not enough to bring up the weight to the standard level of 26.96 grams, so a second plug was inserted,” said Borckardt.

The weight of the dual-plugged coin is 26.98 grams.

The consignor of the discovery coin wants to remain anonymous, and no information is available at this time about the coin’s earlier provenance.

“This unique early American coin provides insight into the early years of the United States Mint.  Its discovery 221 years after its production makes us eagerly anticipate what other numismatic treasures are still waiting to be found,” said Borckardt.

Cracking Out Top-Tier Holders

March 12, 2016 in Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC), Coins, Collecting, Education, Grading, News, NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation ), Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service), Rare Coins, USA Coins, World Coins

By: Michael Bugeja News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

ngccrackout1

Some believe that when a top-tier grading company such as PCGS, NGC, ANACS or ICG slabs a coin, it is the last word on the grade. However, after a numismatist gains sufficient expertise, he or she can spot an under-graded coin, or what is perceived to be one.

In this article we are discussing crack-outs, not crossovers, or resubmissions. NGC only considers crossovers from PCGS, a policy I have criticized repeatedly here, especially when the coins are slabbed by ANACS and ICG.

Following the PCGS announcement late last year that CoinFacts would be available to hobbyists for free, competitor NGC has launched a nifty, enhanced price guide that contains many of the same features as CoinFacts, with graphics, census data, and auction prices.

In a news release earlier this month, NGC claimed that its U.S. Coin Price Guide is faster and easier to use–on computers, tablets, and smartphones.I tried it. The company is correct.

When you log on to the price guide, you locate your coin type from a table of images, making the selection easier and more visually appealing than if… Full article at the source>

Recently in an estate auction I won more than 50 lots of coins in older green PCGS holders, which traditionally have the allure of being conservatively graded and deserving of upgrades.

For several years now I have been submitting my own coins to the top holdering companies, paying an annual fee for that privilege to PCGS and NGC. (ANACS and ICG do not charge fees; but I seldom submit to them because I have set registries in the other two top companies.)

Only rarely do older numismatic estates come up for auction, and when they do by the major houses such as… Full article at the source>

By: Jeff Garrett News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

1794-silver-dollar

My introduction to numismatics began the “All-American” way in the mid 1970’s. A family friend gave me a Whitman folder for Lincoln Cents 1941 to date. Like millions of other kids before and since, I began to fill the holes in my album. In the 1970’s, finding most of the Lincoln cents for my budding collection was relatively easy. Every Friday after receiving my allowance, I would head to the bank for $5 worth of penny rolls. I repeated this process for months until my collection of 1941 to date Lincoln Cents was complete. Unfortunately, I lived in Florida, and… Full article at the source>

More PNG Interns Hired, Mentoring Available
For Prospective Professional Numismatists

Two more interns in the Professional Numismatists Guild’s (www.PNGdealers.org) Promoting Numismatic Growth mentoring program have been hired as full-time professional numismatists.  The PNG continues to encourage more candidates to enroll in the organization’s recently-launched mentoring program and also is offering its online education courses to anyone, whether or not the person wants to enroll in the internship program.

“Five of the original seven PNG interns now have been successfully placed in numismatic careers,” said Carol Raia, Administrator of the PNG mentoring program.

Former PNG interns Evan Brooke

Former PNG interns Evan Brooke

Evan Brooke, age 30, has been hired as a grader at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com), the PNG’s official grading service, and Ian Connor, age 22, has been hired by coin dealer Jay King of Logansport, Indiana.

The Promoting Numismatic Growth project was started in 2014 and is intended to help nurture the next generation of professional numismatists.  The program includes online instruction about coins, banknotes and the numismatic market, followed by a paid internship at a major numismatic company.

“I feel incredibly lucky to have been chosen by the PNG to take part in this amazing internship program.  You could not buy the knowledge and connections I have made in the past year.  Working with and learning from the best numismatists in the world is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Brooke.

Connor concurred: “There is no doubt in my mind the most valuable part of the PNG experience is the people you meet and work with on a daily basis.  The experts you cross paths with at all companies is something that is invaluable and extremely helpful.  All were eager for me to ask questions and pick their brains.  I had the opportunity to learn a tremendous amount of knowledge in a very short time from these wonderful mentors.”

Internship applications are being accepted by PNG from prospective candidates 21 to 32 years of age.

Former PNG interns Ian Connor

“Internship candidates who successfully complete a background security check and the education components of the program will have the opportunity for a three to six month, paid internship at either Heritage Auctions or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation,” explained PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

The PNG also is offering its extensive online, multi-media internship education and training curriculum from the Edward C. Milas School of Numismatics to anyone who wants to take the classes, not just internship candidates.  There are two levels of online classes developed in conjunction with the University of Rare Coins.

The fee for applying for the internship program is $250 to cover the cost of a security background check and the Level 100 online classes.  The cost for Level 200 for intern candidates is an additional $250.  Those who want only the online classes can enroll for a total fee of $300 that includes both Level 100 and 200.

Certificates of Completion will be provided to everyone who successfully completes both levels.

“I would encourage any young person who wishes to make a career out of numismatics to pursue this informative opportunity,” said former intern Brooke.

“I cannot thank the PNG enough for giving me this opportunity, especially Carol Raia, the program administrator, and the President of the PNG, Terry Hanlon. I would like to especially thank my first mentor Sam Brown from Keypoint Trust Coins in Ambler, Pennsylvania who helped me out so much. I will be forever grateful for that,” he added.

Specific information about the internship program and educational courses is available at www.PNGdealers.org under the “Promoting Numismatic Growth” navigation links near the top of the PNG’s home page.  For additional information, contact the PNG by phone at (951) 587-8300 or by email at internship@PNGdealers.org.

NGC Grades 30 Millionth Coin

April 15, 2014 in Coin Grading, Coins, Collecting, Grading, News, NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation ), Numismatica, Numismatics

News 4/15/2014.  By: Certified Collectibles Group. (http://www.collectiblesgroup.com/)

Over the last four years, NGC has graded more than 10 million coins, and in the process, became the first certification service to break the 20-, 25- and 30-million-coins-graded barriers.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) graded its 30 millionth coin this week and is the first third-party coin grading service to reach this important milestone.

There has been extraordinary demand for NGC certification in world markets — as well as strong growth domestically. Over the last four years, NGC graded more than 10 million coins, and in the process, became the first certification service to break the 20- and 25-million-coins-graded barriers.

“This has been an unprecedented period of growth for NGC certification, and we are honored to be the world’s largest and most trusted third-party coin grading service,” said NGC Chairman Mark Salzberg. “The number of coins a certification service has graded is a key indicator of market acceptance, which is something every collector and dealer looks at when they sell a coin.”

NGC Mirrors PCGS Policy for 70-Graded Coins

March 18, 2014 in Grading, News, NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation ), Numismatica, Numismatics, PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service)

March 18, 2014 By Michael Bugeja (http://news.coinupdate.com)

Last month we reported that Professional Coin Grading Service instituted a new crossover policy for Collectors Club members and authorized dealers, allowing them to submit mint state and proof coins graded 70 by another service with those top grades cited as the minimum acceptable crossover grade.

Previously, PCGS would only allow crossovers to have a minimum designated grade of MS69 or PR69.

At the time NGC still had that policy. But now it has changed it to mirror PCGS’s policy, announcing this week that it will now accept crossover submissions of coins graded MS 70, PF 70 and SP 70–but only ones holdered by PCGS.
