Check Slabbed Descriptions

We realize that many bidders consider PCGS and NGC holdered coins as sight-unseen commodities, buying and selling them like stock. Nonetheless, be sure to view the enlarged photo of a slabbed coin to make sure that the auctioneer listed it correctly.

Making matters more difficult is the use of the letter “S” on NGC labels as an abbreviation of the word “silver” in “silver dollar.” An 1893 Morgan dollar in low mint state (G4) is an inexpensive coin worth about $200 whereas the 1893-S is the king of Morgans worth $2350 in G4 condition. On an NGC label, the 1993 can look like the king when it really is only a pawn! Click picture to expand.
