guess the grade (obv. only)

Post by DHalladay » Sun Oct 24, 2021 8:12 pm

I found this coin on eBay and just had to share. It's a 1921-P Morgan. It's in a straight-graded TPG holder. The reverse photo was so dismal I didn't even want to try a huge screen blowup and screenshot like I did to get this obverse photo.

What is your grade opinion of just this obverse?
I'll revel later what the TPG said.

is that a giant scratch? From behind the eye to the chin? If so I would hope its a details grade. If not I will say 61

It's a trick, I know this guy. Has to have a shiney hook some place in it. But as I will bite, I say Unc details. So how bad wrong I am? Straight grade is wrong, they goofed. MS64.

A bad picture, indeed, and I'll assume this is a trick question GTG and say 64. The fields that I can actually see look pretty clean.

I don’t like these holders.
To me they do not grade good.

Sadly, ICG is not the only service company with practices that makes one scratch their heads almost as much as this coin was scratched...
...
I agree with JB that the fields of this coin are nice, but there is no way a consensus decision would be a MS65...
