wow. How much profit does that equal? If each of those coins were at least 10 dollars to grade, that would be 100 million dollars! And I bet the average cost is more like 25 dollars. Sheesh. Talk about a money maker.
The great American dream that does not disturb even if it is $500 million. If the service offered gives the US market what requires and brings a level of security, GREAT.
There is a greater thing that disturbs, in Europe they are removing RED WAX from the coins as an improvement! This in many cases is our check on old provenances prior to photographic plates. I cannot understand why PCGS wishes to destroy heritage. Please answer this.
