I have a small pile of 1902-0 Morgan BU Dollars VAM-26A. I have a customer who regularly sells me BU rolls and last March I found one of them in the rolls so I gave it to another dealer to submit to PCGS and he sold it for me on consignment at Heritage. Last week the customer brought me more.
Here is my dilemma, I only submit using NGC myself, and selling through Heritage was not all that great. I think I can do just as well on eBay with them- one of them I sold here in about 5 minutes (either too cheap or just found the right buyer) but the better ones I want to have graded.
However I cannot find what people use for a registry for the Elite Clashed Die Varieties. The ones I have are suppossedly very rare -I think perhaps I have half a roll of them approx so far- but maybe originally there were only a few rolls produced, idk. I reseached a bit and found one sold (MS63 Anacs) a few years back for about $1600.
Should I go Anacs with them? Is it easy to get set up to submit with them? Or do they need PCGS grading for that secret society (tongue in cheek-I just can't find it? I have looked on the NGC and PCGS registry set pages, so I am trying to figure it out all by myself...
I suppose I could just do whatever I want and let the next owner deal with it, but trying to get the most I can for these. Heritage just wasn't it for me. The one I sold there is currently for sale for 4 times what I got for it. My coins/bills usually end up at the last day at the last minute, or the last one (1902-O VAM 26A) they forgot to mention that it was a VAM at all, so I had to call my dealer and ask him to call Heritage and get them to change it so it didn't get sold for 50 bucks (yikes)...
thanks guys (and gals), miss y'all (got, got, got, got no time)
