There a lot of different coins that are problematic to own, and that is what we are going to be covering and going over today. Obviously really expensive raw coins on eBay are likely to be problematic, but there is far more nuance than just avoiding mislabeled holders and fake coin items. Let's chat.

  1. HOWDY GREAT CHRISTIAN,COIN COLLECTING IS MY PASSION AND TREASURE TOWN COINS TOO BECAUSE IS THE BEST COIN SOURCE TO PROGRESS AND FINANCIAL PEACE THANKS..

  2. Thx for sharing great video enjoyed it 😀. I went to a coin show last year that a dealer was wanting top dollar for some of his coins and the only reason I didn’t buy was for that price why wouldn’t you have them graded, I did buy a 2.5 gold indian from that show and after having another you tuber look at some photos that I sent him I ended up selling that coin for what I paid. Thx again

  3. Great information. I have a lot of Carson City dollars I’ve had since the early 70’s that I never sent to be graded. I have some 78-CC dollars VF-XF I paid less then $5.00 for. I’m too old to worry about them now.

  4. I bought an ungraded 1873 CC trade dollar with a huge scratch on the obverse and a chopped 1874 S Trade dollar (polished) for around $270 ungraded. One of my larger purchases from a coin shop in Bangkok. I’m not a super expert but I pulled the trigger on these two coins since I thought it was a good deal. However, I was thinking…since these weren’t graded, the authenticity of the coins could be in question…anyway, risk and reward I guess…

  5. this is why i would never purchase a raw coin. too many cheaters out there. graded or bust is my motto. Christian is right. no one would have a valuable coin in a raw holder unless something is wrong with it. a fool and his money are soon parted.
