  1. Well the coin came back "no decision" from NGC. It is the same answer I get with every Russian coin I send them from the 1700's. Its off to PCGS now to give them a try. Can anyone recommend a way to get a coin verified for authenticity aside from sending them for grading. Do any auctions offer a service to authenticate coins?
  2. Why did you post my bids for this coin, any point? I dont buy often from ebay, I stick to numismatic auctions 90 % of the time. I understand buying ungraded coins is a lottery but I guess I have won the lottery 3 times over the last 6 months. I had a 1776 5 rouble grade XF which i bought in greece for 3750.00 dollars. Also 1836 5 rouble which I paid 1300.00 graded ms62 and also a 5 roubles 1892 for 1100.00 that graded ms64. I guess miracles do happen. Besides I love the rush of hearing back from the grading company. I believe half the fun in collecting coins is getting that great deal for a coin you want and unfortunately fishing on ebay or private collections at estate sales is the only way left to do it. The days of winning coins cheap on real auctions are in the past. I just won a few on Heritage Auction and they did not come overly cheap. I also wonder why people dont get coins graded knowing their value will go up. Its not that easy to always get coins graded. I have won ungraded coins from both Baldwins and Ira and Larry Goldberg auctions and I sent the coins I won to both NGC and PCGS and they both returned the coins "no decision" How do you explain that?
  3. I am aware of the risks of buying ungraded coins on ebay and I dont usually buy them but i really needed this coin for my collection and their is really not much risk. I had planned to send it to NGC for express grading all along and when I called them, they said they could get me an answer within 5 business days. The seller offered 14 days return which is plenty of time for me but Ebay and Paypal protect the buyer for up to 45 days in the case that a coin is discovered to be counterfeit. The coin should be here any day and I will post the results as soon as I hear from NGC. By the way there was not 3 bidders, there was 14 bidders. Thank you for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. I definitely do not plan on buying many ungraded coins on ebay, i know thats playing with fire.
  4. Thank you, that is exactly what i wanted to hear
  5. I have only been collecting coins for just over a year and i am still new at this. I will know whether its real as soon as I get it and send it for grading to NGC. If its not real i just return it. No harm done. Let me rephrase my question. I saw what the price for this coin sold in 1996 from the Fuchs collection back in 1996 for 350 GBP but that was 15 years ago. I was wondering if anyone new what the cost of this coin would be today. It has not been seen on auction for a very long time. I bought it for that reason that it seems rare. I paid 6300.00 and what I am asking is lets say this coin is real, did i pay a fair price for it. Did I overpay, did i get it cheap?
  6. What part of the question don't you understand? I know how much i bought it for but i am asking if anyone knows what this coin is worth now? It hasn't been sold on any major auction since the one from the Fuchs collecion sold in 1996.
  7. I recently bought a 1769 5 rouble coin on ebay. I believe it is in "xf" condition. I can not find any history on this coin sold in auction. Would anyone know what a coin like this would cost. Here is a link to the coin: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5574633083&toolid=10001&campid=5335826004&customid=&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&icep_item=180713718273 Thank you
  8. I dont normally buy ungraded coins from ebay but my spidey senses were tingling also but in a good way. I have a good feeling about this one. Of course im sending it for express grading as soon as i get it. No risk to me but wasted time and shipping cost. If its fake I can just send it back and get a refund. Here is a link to the coin. If you have an idea would this coin has sold for in the past please let me know. http://www.ebay.com/itm/180713718273?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_500wt_1361

  10. Thank you for everyones advice. I will not waste my money having it graded and will be shipping this coin back for a refund right away
  11. Thank you for your opinion, I also question its authenticity. I have only been collecting a few years and I am fairly new to all this. I buy only graded coins for the most part but thought I would a take a chance on this one since most coins from this century are not graded. May I ask what makes you think its fake?
  12. Thank you si. This is me first time posting on this forum.

  14. Hello Coin People, I recently won an auction from "Ebay.de" in Germany. It was a 1756 10 Rouble coin in fairly good condition. My question is about the strike of the coin. I know back then the coins were struck by hand and as you can see on the photos I have provided, the numbers of the date have clearly been struck twice, especially the number 7 and 5. Also, you cant tell by the photo but there is faint lettering on both sides of this coin around the rim just above the main writing mostly around 11:00 on both sides. It looks as the it was struck wrong and then re-struck or possibly this was another coin and was stamped with the new date. I guess what I really want to know is if anyone can tell me if this is a rare error coin or is this a fake. I have never seen a coin like this and I have 30 days to return it. I am sending it for grading but I have found especially with old coins, both NGC and PCGS often return them "no decision. Thank you
