    In other news, the Mark Twain Gold Unc is at 5701, just slightly behind the 2013 5-Star Generals coin...

    Out of the 6 Gold Unc coins I ordered, I received the worst one yesterday, which had a rim nick on it. Looking at the current mintage numbers, I wouldn't be surprised if an NPS Gold Unc at MS69 fetches a higher premium than a Mark Twain Gold Unc at MS70, as the MT coin failed to overtake the 5-Star Generals coin. I now feel better that I decided to buy all NPS coins instead of mixing with MT.

    The coins are now ranked by mintage, as follows:

    1997 Jackie Robinson + 2016 National Park
    (undecided until return numbers come in)
    2013 5-Star Generals
    2016 Mark Twain
    2015 US Marshals
    2001 Capitol Visitor
    2012 Star Spangled Banner

    After now moving down to 7th place in the mintage ranking, I can definitely see the 2012 Star Spangled Banner coin (once a candidate for overtaking JR as late as Oct 2012) going down in price during the coming months...

    Well, there will be at least two coins returned. I just received an order from the mint for eight total coins I had hoped to submit for grading. At least 5, and possibly six, were impaired. I'm pretty disgusted - back they all go for a refund.

    The 2012 coin is only a small part of the picture that is unfolding. I see a large-scale readjustment in prices happening, based on the new issues from 2015 and 2016.

    The law of low mintage will prevail and boost the premiums of the 2016 National Park, 2016 Mark Twain, and 2015 US Marshals coins within the next several years. On the other hand, the premiums of the 1997 Jackie Robinson, 2013 5-Star Generals, 2001 Capitol Visitor, and 2012 Star Spangled Banner coins will retreat over the course of the same time period.

    It's a game of chicken. No one wants to send back a coin, that may become a key. But it may not become a key if no one sends back their extras.

    That's a disappointing number, for sure, but I have a feeling some buyers timed their purchases so they would still be eligible to return their coins after seeing today's sales report.

    Anyway, if I had bought fewer than 5 coins, I would have lost the Modern tier rate for grading at NGC.

    Just some info from a few places. Grading populations as of 1/10/17

    Pcgs --- 69 -- 41 ..... 70 -- 206

    Ngc ---- 69 -- 5, ..... 70 -- 166

    Totals - 69 -- 46 .... 70 -- 372

    Total graded - 418
    % graded - 418/5198 = 8%

    89% of the coins submitted are 70's. ((372/418)x100)=88.995%

    Boys Town unveiling, including gold, silver, and clad coins...

    I might pass on the gold coin, as I think the mintage will be higher than last year's issues.

    The clad coin seems to have a good chance of going very low, however. Same with the silver.
