Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Sacagawea p vip strike
QUESTION: Is this a vip strike? What is it? Is it rare? Should ngc grade it? I have seen only little info on this coin and seems very rare
ANSWER: It's hard to give an opinion from this picture. If there's a coin shop near you, I'd suggest taking it there.
In terms of NGC — I buy a few slabs each year, but grading is VERY subjective. I have several coins graded by them that I think were low-graded, and there are books and smartphone apps that can help you grade. Also keep in mind that turnaround time from NGC can be up to a month. I **think** that costs $35 plus insurance and shipping both ways.
I could give you my opinion on a grade. For me to do this, I would need you to take the coin out of the box, and give me a close up of both sides of the coin.
I hope this helps.

QUESTION: If this is a p vip strike, from what iv read, there were only 3 ever graded as high as a 68! If this is a vip strike is it rare? Valuable? If it grades good is it even more rare? More valuable? Im almost positive its a vip strike, and from what iv read its 9x more rare then the goodacre coins hers a closer look
A good grade is always better, makes the coin more desirable to a potential buyer...
In my collection, I have a 2003-S graded at PF-69, that according to NGC is worth about $25. I have included a picture of my coin for comparison sake.
In terms of your coin, I did a little more digging on NGC's archives. Surprisingly, if it's the coin I'm thinking, It's only worth $1-$2. On the website below, if it prompts you to login, just click back to archive, then hit your back button.
I hope this is helpful.
