an't identify the variety you just cherrypicked?  Not to worry!  I provide a complete attribution service for 20th/21st century U.S. die varieties, including design changes, mintmark styles, doubled dies, repunched mintmarks, over mintmarks, and inverted mintmarks. 

Need your variety graded and encapsulated with the correct attribution on the label? I provide a consulting service to ANACS for just such needs.  Send your coins directly to me.  I will make the attribution and forward them to ANACS on your behalf.  ANACS will grade and slab your coins placing the attribution I provide on the label.  Then they will return the coins to you.  You pay me nothing, but you will have to pay ANACS their regular grading fees + their $12.00 per coin research fee.

Please email me at jameswiles@sbcglobal.net before sending coins, in order to make sure that I am available and don't have a large backlog.  Your patience is appreciated as summer travels and holidays usually slow down turnaround times dramatically.  Normally turnaround times run 2-3 weeks, but under adverse conditions can take 6-8 weeks.

You may send up to 10 coins at a time.  Always use insured or registered mail with insurance and pack your coins securely either in a bubbled mailer or padded envelope.  I prefer that you ship your coins in plastic or vinyl flips, so that I can easily remove them for inspection and photography when needed.  In addition please include a page indicating where you want me to look and what you want me to comment about.  Otherwise I am guessing and can't direct my comments to help you learn to attribute your own coins.  Please make all checks and money orders payable to James Wiles.

You can send your package to me at:

If you need help attributing your coins, don't hesitate to drop me a line.  I will be happy to give your coin a first hand look.

Having your coin attributed not only helps you, but it helps grow the variety hobby at large!

Every coin I see adds to our database of knowledge about the variety, whether it is a new listing or already listed in the files.
