But it's still my precious...
Well you just gave me something to research and learn more as to what would make a coin a disqualifier. I really appreciate you. Thanks again.
I'm a big WW2 buff and that Penny fits right in. I may get it graded just to have it legit and put on my shelf as a show show piece. I have no intention of selling it.
It's not funny.. It's absolutely true!
Why is it that 2 coins can be the same grade but yet at times they sell for a significantly different amount. I've tried searching details on the coin which sold for hundreds or a couple thousand more than the coin which sold for less but I can never get any details on it. I can only guess that it's because of an error because that person that day just really wanted it. Would you happen to have an answer for that?
They may have not known the real value or just had to have the coin.
Could be the buyer thought the coin was under graded.
The buyer may have put in the wrong bid amount.
The coin could have had really pretty toning or was a rare variety.
I see. I just now found an emaculate 1987 RD. Not 1 ding and about 6 or so hairline scratches and sadly 5 tiny carbon spots. My question is does a coin like this receive a high grade?
I was watching some pcgs grading videos and from what I understand this particular coin can come in at a 67+ or 68 based on the individual graders perceptions of the coin. Yes there is alot to learn.
While true, your coin would not grade that high, based on what I can see of it.
I suggest you look at several 1945-S cents in various grades on eBay, and then look at the 67s on PCGS CoinFacts and Heritage and learn what the differences are among MS grades. Also look at the pictures on PCGS Photograde. If you are confused about what makes a coin grade high or low, this is a really good place to learn. You can learn a lot from all the official grading experiment threads, too, and not just by looking at the coin and the grade, but also the comments.
The 87-D cent you show would probably grade low MS, even if it is deep red. The reverse is quite nice, but the obverse is a bit of a mess.
