Early Dollar Coins

What I Sell
I only sell PCGS or NGC graded early dollar products. Through the years, I've found that these are the two best independent third party graders of coins. In my opinion, both of these companies have made errors in coin grading. The best advice I can give when purchasing a coin is to "BUY THE COIN, NOT THE HOLDER". If the holder states XF45, grade the coin yourself. Also, keep in mind that certain varieties of early dollars have weak areas. If you don't have the out of print two volume set Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars Of The United States: A Complete Encyclopedia by Q. David Bowers, I suggest you plunk down the $35 for a copy of The United States Early Silver Dollars 1794-1803 by Jules Reiver. The Bowers set will run you $350 plus if you can find them on Ebay, but the Reiver book will definitely suffice.
What's wrong with this picture?
Obviously this is a 10x6 Star. Either three graders, or the person typing up the label didn't catch this. Maybe this is also a VG10, or a F15. Don't buy the holder, buy the coin!
I am a retired Soldier who served 21 years in the Army as an ammunition sergeant. Most of my service was with the 82d Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg N.C.. I've also done two tours each in Korea, Germany, and Iraq. Currently I am working for the Department of The Army as an ammunition inspector/manager.
Also, if you are not satisfied 7 days after receiving the coin, just return it (see returns under FAQ). If you aren't satisfied, I'm not satisfied!
