    Coins issued 1953 onwards, I have no issue with but I have a 1949 and 1950 silver dollars certified Ms65 by Iccs . I also have a 1951 that is definitely also ms65 but not certified.
    L fear that if submitted, it will be classified as proof like.
    I have been collecting 64 years and it galls me that the mint is issuing shiny pieces of metal called coins. Let’s get back to circulating coins


    yes i agree with you 110% this is also why i stopped buying RCM coins
    they just produce garbage after garbage just looking for money and to make matthers worse they got the presses running overtime and full speed.
    its sick but really.


    If submitted, ICCS will know the difference between a PL and MS strike coin.


    Check out the 1951 ” Low Relief” Business Strikes Quarters!! ICCS ( Mr. Brian Cornwell) has graded in both B.S.,M.S., & PL The ICCS Pop Report of 2012 shows only 7 coins VG to AU58 , 17 M.S., & 289 PL coins. That’s out of a mintage of 8,290,719.Now also including 250 High Relief and unattributed coins graded. That means there were and also recognizing that there are millions not graded that there are potentially 8,290,719 coins..subtract 563 coins= 8,290,156 coins that are potentially PL’s and for Business Use. And get this P.L. sets only started in 1954, therefor there never was a 1951 PL Set ( Charlton Coin Guide 1975 pages 17 & 18.) Also the R.C.M. DOES NOT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THE EARLY P.L. STRIKES.
    Low Relief: a coin with the raised design not very high above the field.
    Business Strike: a coin intended for everyday use in commerce. The Canadian Legacy II Sale (Feb.10-14 2015) Page 52 Lot # 1697 Sold for $1062.00 B.P.INCLUDED. And guess who once owned that coin….John J. Pittman.
    So don’t ever believe that they are misattributed proof like as shown in TRENDS. Along with many other errors as well.
