I originally bought this product just cause I love the Great White Shark, one of my favorite animals. Loved the design so I went ahead and bought it. I also ordered 5 bullion pieces as well with my order. I have a feeling this problem I encountered is because the coins are banged up in the shipping process while they are in their tubes. All my shark bullion pieces have scratches and scuff marks, as well as this NGC slabbed MS70. On a side note, the frosted glaze this coin has probably make it easier to scratch. I have no idea what an MS70 is, but I looked at the scale and it said flawless, almost perfect mint state. Anyways, the NGC slabbed coin I got was not a MS70, and no where near it. It had multiple scuff marks on the coin, which you can tell by shining a bright light and it reflecting in the light. Also on the rim of the coin was scratched pretty badly.This was on both sides. I don't know how this coin got slabbed MS70.. so I checked NGC's website. Apparently out of 672 Great White Shark coins submitted 425 were MS70. This might be a testament to either two things: 1) The Perth Mint has superior quality coins that are always near perfect. 2) NGC lackluster grading system. "MS70" is easy to achieve because imperfections are often overlooked. To me one of my bullion sharks I got look cleaner than this piece. The real question, and part of the reason I bought this.... is I wonder if I would be able to sell this obviously imperfect coin as an MS70 for a profit 20 years down the line? It's unfortunate we have these problems in Modern Coin grading.I will contact APMEX to talk about return/replacement. Other than that I love the design and the bullion coin of this kind is great.
