    My first MS70!!!

    It's a 1993 1oz Gold Panda! :)

    Share in my joy!

    I know it's not much compared to the Comeaux Collection, but it's my first MS70, from my first submission! :)

    Whoo hoo!

    I really hope this doesn't go missing in transit. :)

    I'm open to offers :)

    http://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/CertResults.aspx?CertNumber=3613268-001
    Date/Info: 1993 CHINA PANDA
    Denomination: G100Y
    Grade: MS 70
    Total Graded at 70: 1
    eheh... this is a bit misleading... there are 8 other "unattributed" MS70s. [9x MS70s out of a total of 225x Pandas] ... even still, this bear is something special! :)

    It is indeed a blessed day!

    WOW yennus that is totally cool for you man !!!

    Isn't that such a SWEET feeling when you see the 70 grade ?!!!

    On a 1993 at that this is not like it's one from the 2000's very difficult to get that 70 on a '93 bro

    Congratulations bigtime I'm sharing your joy bud ! :)

    Congratulations. Awesome. You hit a home run.
    Can you share your stadistics? How many silver and gold pandas you send? How many 70's, 69's and 68's?

    I will try for first time to grade my first batch thanks a friend's kindness.
    I will share the stadistics when i have the batch graded.

    Congrats Yennus! it is a great feeling ! I just got my first batch results from 90s era silver pandas I had conserved and graded and was shocked to get a 70 as well and it certainly helped ease the dissapointment on the MS65 I got! I was just about to ask here if it was possible to still get a 70 on conserved coins but that answered my question. Now I may never get another one but it sure feels good , espescially since I really just sent them as an experiment without looking really carefully ,and so I would have an authenticated set to compare for fakes since the 90s pandas are still new to me.

    Hearty congratulations bro!! That's awesome news, the power of the hunt and your f2f coin purchasing method is reaping rewards... something tells me this won't be your last perfect strike :)

    What is meant by 'unattributed' coins graded?

    Attributes are like Large Date Small Date.

    So unattributed means a simple "Panda" instead of distinguishing between LD or SD.

    Got some non-Panda stuff still waiting to be graded.

    But out of the Panda lot, it was a mixed bag (MS70 down to details). I'll create a separate thread about how the lot went.

    Thanks 25Grizzlies! :) Yeah, I think I'm certainly getting more experienced in hunting for quality Pandas :)

    Hopefully this is just the start to a whole lot of Perfect Pandas! :)

    "Unattributed" Pandas are the coins that NGC didn't record as Large Date or Small Date. (A shame really).
