    Each are the 1st of their kind graded by NGC.

    And each are also my 1st raw submissions.. They'll always be like this, right? ;)



    (Many thanks for your assistance, my friend! :D )

    Awesome medals! Perfect 70's...wow!


    I have the same Dazu Rock Carving medal (2nd in series) in the raw and it's one of my favorite Chinese medals of all. It really is a spectacularly detailed and designed piece with very high relief. I have spent hours admiring it since I'd purchased it a couple of years ago.


    A grade of 70 is awesome for such a big medal! The sheep too!

    I have a question: why they don't make them in Silver material? I guess.......maybe it's too soft to mint?

    Yeah, Dazu is pretty cool for 2012.. Heck, even pretty cool for 2016!

    Had my eye on it for a while now.


    Also in copper. And silver -- can I borrow some $$? :lol:


    Not a whole lot of other 70's in 70mm & up, from what I can see..

    A few WH Great Walls in Ag, and that pearl one.

    For brass, a couple in one of those Grottoes varieties.


    That's about it.

    Even the smaller ones in these really high-reliefs, you don't see a whole lot .


    Looks like mainly Shanghai Mint.


    And even though I didn't see anything wrong with mine in the pouches at least to the naked eye, just sort of figured they'd get the standard 69's.


    Putting them on eBay for $8,888.88, baby!! ;)
