Re: New Trends Comment

Sandy - I would like to spend some time with you on this. Please be sure to let me know the next the next time you are in Baltimore... as I would prefer not to bring them across the border (in each direction).

Years ago SF (and NSF) examples were clearly certified as both SP and PL. Suddenly, this all changed. These were expert opinion(s) in the day, and now they are thrown out without explanation. My SF, PL and SP examples are clearly different. The SP coins are fully struck, with no weakness what-so-ever in the portrait. PL pieces have the typical weakness, as seen in this and future years.

I think the NSF specimen only and SF proof-like only are way too neat and tidy. While it would make certification decisions easier, I just cannot buy it. There were way too many experiments going on with the introduction of the new monarch and SP presentation sets in conjunction the new higher quality PL sets being produced.

Mint sets, for example, were not all proof-like in quality. One can find RCM sets, clearly bound in original cellophane, that are not PL in quality. Likewise, SP sets did not always include SP coins, some were clearly high grade MS. This is most clear in looking at 5c pieces in these later sets. Just too many variables.
