Default NGC Label confusion...

First release, Early release, blue, red, bronze... WTF... Can someone shed some light for me???

I want to pick up at least one or more of the 2013 NGC ASEs, and Pandas... I too am wanting to have graded coins from my beginning year of my collection... The labels are throwing me off... Not sure what is what...

I honestly couldn't say and I'm not even sure it really matters to be honest, lol.

First releases, and Early releases are the same... NGC now offers both labels... First basically replaced Early from what I am reading on the internet...

funny cuz I thought it was the other way around. They used to have a label that said "First Strike" but as it turns out, that designation really doesn't mean anything and is meant to make you think it carries some kind of premium when really it doesn't. So NGC did away with that label (although PCGS still uses it) and now calls them Early Release.

I usually buy them because I like the coin and want a nice graded one. I could give a #@#@#@#@ what the label says, lol.

Agreed... Just trying to make heads or tails on the labels..

Good read here though...
