Just received the coin back from PCGS.
Stunned that they graded it VF25. :shock:
When in doubt... don't.

Hammered stuff is usually very unevenly struck. As such, they need to look at the best struck part of the coin to determine the extent of the wear, which tends to be even unless the coin has been bent.

So did they put it in normal holder or a Double Stuf? I think you now need to discuss with them reholdering the set with a special label with your tartan on it. That would make for a really cool display.

John:
Thankfully, they put it in a regular holder.
