Planchet Quality by george pearl
I bought a MS68 Indiana quarter on ebay to have an example of what such a grade would look like. I noticed that the coin had mirrored fields and I was wondering if the Mint specially prepared the planchets in order to achieve such quality-maybe polishing the planchets prior to striking.

Can anyone explain what is meant by the term: "Graded PCGS *XC46" by [email protected]
when the encapsulated coin (a large cent) is graded by PCGS as VG10? Also seen under this listing on eBay: 1883-O Dollar Morgan Silver GSA - Graded *XC46 (but with no actual grading by anyone) The *XC46 puzzles me as it's seems to only be used by M. Barr Antiques Ken

RUSSIA: Fake 1899 10 rouble coin by Bob Hairgrove
This must be fake, but is it a known counterfeit? http://imagecloset.com/5/12041009-Russia_10_Kopeek_1899_Faelschung.jpg (It's actually a gold 10 rouble coin, in spite of what the file name says). The mintmaster AR was only active after 1901. --
