What are your thoughts on grading vs omp. When I buy these new series, I do not always send in for grading. Matter of fact many I prefer in omp. Many people worry about authenticity, but the items I buy I have never had any problems. Think like: classical gardens, lunar panda, or temple of heaven. I never heard of any counterfeit issues relating to these medals . If money was no issue I guess it would be nice to have a graded set as well as an omp set. Let me also throw in first release or early release on graded low mintage coins. If there are only small number of coins minted ( say under 75) and all minted at same time, what is difference between regular label and early release?
