Re: Did I do good?

Keilg1 Well thats a tuff descison to make , To break out or not . If you send it to PCGS for a crossover in the slab and mark the Min grade MS63 PL and If it doesnt make it they wont break it out .

Re: Did I do good?

I would say the grade is a MS62 PL due to the fact its 1878cc VAM 18 ( My Guess).
And Thats High on the TPG grading scale for a VAM18 . Just a guess . But still
a Nice looking coin . Doesnt look like any Problems with the coin .

Or is it possible in some way for a PL to lose its PL over time in a Holder ? Or was there a Time Frame at PCGS/NGC that PL standards where when not quite up to par...
