With all the bad talk about goldsilver it’s a bit controversial to say this but...As a collector from Belgium, I never had any problems with Goldsilver. I do agree their communication is reduced to an absolute minimum. They won’t alarm you when certain stuff is delayed, you have to figure out that yourself at the page of the coin(s) you bought. Also; I always get my stuff delivered directly, no storage. Very good packaging and secure shipping. Maybe I’m lucky? Or just too relaxed 😂
Bought this from European Mint couple months ago.
There’s a shiny mark on the baby koalas back. I don’t know for sure but I don’t believe it’s from impact damage. It just doesn’t look like it’s taken a hit or anything.
Could it be a mint error that sends its value soaring? Making me rich beyond my wildest dreams...
Or, does it actually devalue the coin? Or anything in between....
Any thoughts on this would be most welcome 🐨
I agree with the short summation of @sovereignsteve I guess you can send in any coin for grading whenever you feel like it...The real question is, will you win or lose money in the end.
Some people use the grading service just to know their stuff is real because they don’t have the right tools or mindset to determinate authenticity. Some people just want only the best of the best.
i guess it’s about the same as grading games or cards...also in this field the number of gradings has increased. And it splits collectors into 2 groups; some people do, some don’t. I guess it adds a more secure feeling to the eventual buyer and it’s also great for people who only want top notch stuff that has been looked at by an expert in these fields. But having said that; be carefull with second hand graded stuff being sold, it also might be a fake switched with the real deal after grading. The more technique, images and worldwide knowledge increase, the better the fakes.
