1962 Guitar

Postby coinme » Fri Feb 27, 2015 6:30 pm

I recently purchased a 1962 ICCS MS-65 "harp" that is acutally the guitar variety. I got it for $35US. Now the question I have is this. Why do I see some of these ICCS graded coins listed as harp when they are actually the guitar version? I do see some actually listed as guitar as well so they area obviously aware of the 2 versions. Also, how does this affect the price of the coin? I do see that the guitar version does go for more money and this website has it listed in MS65 at $330! Should I have it re-graded to say "guitar" or is it enough to just show a picture of the variety and say that it was mis-labeled?

Thanks in advance.

Could you post a picture of your coin? It'll be easier to identify the variety.
