    Looks like a caching issue. I get a different error when I browser there, but if I open it in a private browsing window it seems fine. It didn't work for me but you can give it a try and see if it works. If you are using Chrome or a Chromium based browser (e.g. Brave) you can open the developer tools on the page (easiest is to right click and select "Inspect"/"Inspect element"). Now right click on the browsers reload button where you should get a clear cache option.
  18. This is the first ever numerically graded non-proof 1931 Two Shillings by the NGC. Not one single 1931 2/- coin was ever graded before in any non-proof condition (I am not talking about details coins), so in my mind as near to the rarest of the rare for South African coins as one could get. Are their anyone smart enough to access this coin in the NGC registry or archives and show its pictures? I do not know how to do it...

    True - Hope all problems get resolved soon
  24. This coin is correctly in a 'details" holder, as corrosion is actual damage,

  26. There is also a recent article on Coin Week about a hoard of English pennies dating back to William the Conqueror. The value estimates (if accurate) are also an indication of the pent up demand, as a hoard of this size would normally depress the price substantially. https://coinweek.com/world-coins/recently-announced-hoard-second-largest-find-of-norman-coins-ever-in-uk/
  27. You are correct but the reason for it (absent another one) is that this isn't just any coin and presumably NGC knows at least that. Personal opinion but I'd rate it as one of the most desirable coins in the entire South African series, in equivalent quality or near it. NGC and PCGS give some latitude with prominent coins and that's what I think they did here. It's minor but remember that the 1898 Single 9 pond actually has minor graffiti on it. On over 99% of all coins, that would warrant a "details" grade but obviously, it is "market acceptable" except to someone who ignores the reality of collector perception and takes a completely mechanical approach to grading. To your point though, your observation is definitely going to negatively impact the price somewhat, regardless that NGC gave it a numerical grade.
