1915 WTC RECOVERY AUSTRIAN 100 CORONA

One of my favorite coins that I don't yet own, is this 1915 WTC recovery Austrian 100 corona coin found at the WTC site. This coin has been seen on ebay a few times but still love it and the way it looks in the PCGS slab.

1915 WTC RECOVERY AUSTRIAN 100 CORONA

Its one of those coins that are really old and you just know that not many was in that vault when the towers came down. It reminds me of another coin that I really like from the WTC vault and that is the  1912 English Gold Coin found at the vault. I have not seen any of them up for sale in a long time but its out there.

WTC Coins Buyers Look Out.

This comment came in from Maelstrom and it has a lot of valid points about the PCGS error coins. Please read and be on the look out. Just as a side note the 1 of 1000 wtc coin series consist of  a 1999 $5 gold eagle MS69 and a 2001 $1 silver Eagle MS69.

By Mr. Maelstrom

Your point about someone perhaps resubmitting a “1 of 1000″ to PCGS for MS grading is a valid one. It could be that the coin failed to go MS68 or 69 and was reholdered by PCGS.

However, the lack of a serial number (as seen on the back of the genuine slabs from Coin Universe/PCGS)is cause for concern. One would think that PCGS would reference the original serial number on the reholdered coin, or at least provide a number or method by which you could authenticate the coin as being a genuine WTC recovery piece. Lacking that, I cannot fully embrace the concept that these are simply “error slabs” by PCGS.

It is just as likely that these are ordinary BU 2001 $1 Silver Eagles($12-$15 currently) housed in fake (Chinese) slabs. I, personally, would NOT acquire any of the “1 of 1000″ issues with the printing to the RIGHT of the word “Recovery” without a physical inspection of the holder first. To my knowledge, PCGS placed the “1 of XXX or XXXX” designations at the lower LEFT of the grading insert on ALL of the genuine limited set coins.

These seem to be showing up on ebay lately. As an example, there is one of these “errors” simply listed as a “1 of 1000″ for sale on ebay as I write this . The slab pictured is blurry and only shows the front. When I asked the seller to provide clearer pictures of the front and back of the slab, along with any serial number, his reply was that “The picture is the actual coin. I don’t see a serial number, just a designation of 1 of 1000. The back of the holder has the PCGS logo.” In other words, the blurry picture is what it is. I’m not saying that he is selling a fake coin, but I am saying that he/she won’t help me make that determination. Hopefully, the seller doesn’t even know the difference. But, BUYER BEWARE!!!

Without some official confirmation from PCGS that these “error” inserts are genuine, and/or an opportunity to physically examine the holder (look for the four ejector pin circles faintly visible at each corner of the bottom section of the holder…fakes lack them…for now), I, personally, will avoid these until they can be proven genuine.

Question About WTC Coins Certified By PCGS

For some reason I am getting a lot of questions right now about the coins found at the World Trade Center and certified by PCGS. The questions are all along the lines of "How do I know that these coins where really in a vault under the WTC ?" Well there are only one company that knows that for certain and the is PCGS they are the one that certified the coins and slab them with the American Flag insert. I have done my homework on these coins and I urge you to do the same if there are any questions in your mind about the wtc coins and if they are legit. Call PCGS ask them questions about the coins, ask them how many where certified, ask them about the chain of custody and how the coins ended up at PCGS. These are all questions that you should ask PCGS. Contact PCGS Customer Service at 800-447-8848.

As a side note PCGS is the biggest coin grading company in the world with over 17 million coins graded commanding a total value over $18 billion, PCGS represents the industry standard in third-party certification. PCGS offers money-back guarantee of grading accuracy and authenticity

I hope PCGS will get some call from readers of this page and please share any new information about the WTC Coins.

An Interesting WTC Coin !

wtc_1999_1997_G_Maple_Leaf

 

What do you guy thing about this coin, that was send to me by a WTC coin collector today, the coin in question is the $5 Gold Maple from Canada with "PCGS CERTIFIED" written on the flag and not the regular "Gem Uncirculated" there is one coin on E-Bay right now where the sell states that its an "WTC PCGS Error coin". It maybe, but I have no information about PCGS making this mistake on some of the coins. The WTC collector that send me the 3 coins pictured wrote me that she had personally seen 3 of these coins on E-Bay at different times. So if it is a true PCGS Error on the printing on the Flag then we know that 3 coin if not more are out there.

If anybody has any information about this "PCGS Certified" on the flag slab please let me know at jacob@wtc911coins.com and I will put the information out.

Thanks again to the WTC collector that send me the pictures of these 3 coins, and no matter the slab and text its still a very beautiful coin.
