Hello everyone, I have a few boxes of very rare Sealed 20th Anniversary Silver sets, where all three coins qualify for 1st strike. I really need the money right now, so I decided to sell 2 and keep 2 for myself (to submit to PCGS when I have $750 in fees), but seeing how low the bids are so far I'm wondering if I made a mistake. Dead

I'll appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this. Thanks! Confused

WOW. I'm amazed that you already received such high bids. Haven't you seen all the posts on that term of fist strikes? Lots and lots of complaints about that. You are doing OK if what I seen is the actual bids.

If you go to http://www.pcgs.com/customer_service_update.chtml then you will see that as long as the box is sealed and dated before Oct 24, it DOES qualify for 1st strike (11-11-06 would only qualify 2 of the coins). After reading this, please let me know if I am missing something or if you were just incorrect. Thanks.

Oh, and that's fine you deleted the link, but please don't accuse me of something that I never did. My intention was never to just advertise my auction, but to ask a specific question (which you happened to delete as well). I guess I shouldn't waste time repeating it since you'll probably just erase it and attack me again, but just in case, my question was: is there an established market value for this item (specifically an early date sealed box) or not? I have yet to see one on Ebay that qualifies for 1st strike.

Remember your value jumps up in the last minutes of the auction. So hopefully you do well.

my understanding is that you had to of sent them in to pcgs and the post mark on the stamp had to be befor 11-11-06 ,if you send them to pcgs now they wont give you first strick try it and then you will know,its not the post date from the mint that matters ,were talking about pcgs on the link that you sent good luck.

PCGS will allow boxes that are dated and sealed to be graded as First Strike. This is the same for earlier dates as well such as the 1994, 95 and so on. Grading the sets now might even give you 2 70s and a 69 which would go for $1,500 and up for the 3. At 69 you might get 500-600. There is a FS 06-W MS70 for 13K but that is absolutely insane for pop 10+ eagle. IMHO. Oh, and hi everyone. :)

griv In order for you to get a first strike or early release designation you had to of sent them in ,within 30 days of release,from the u.s. mint to the grader,check this out www.ngccoin.com/service/earlyrelease.asp  Im a realist,confirm it,now

That is not correct for PCGS and PCGS has the FIRST STRIKE trademark whereas NGC uses the Early Release TM. As long as the box is dated before a certain date and is unopened it will count as a First Strike. You must request it and pay extra per coin but it will be graded as a First Strike. I personally have done this many times. This is why there are early date PCGS First Strikes of which I own one of each date myself. As for NGC, they are simply not in the same league as PCGS and I stopped owning them years ago. :)

I certainly admit that the PCGS rules on these various Mint offerings are confusing and I have had my share of mistakes which is why I know. Between the Mint and PCGS I am never at a loss for confusion. :)
