The TPGs are very inconsistent in their grading standards except that they are consistent generally in giving a pass to certain types, ages, and values of coins than others. IMO, CAC absolutely should not have beaned the 1795 half dollar. This undermines CAC's entire raison d'etre: That collectors can have confidence that a beaned coin meets the requirements for an A or B example of the TPG's grade. Of course, that definition can be a slippery slope if CAC accepts a sliding scale of TPG grades. Then CAC would stand for nothing. Takes us right back to the old mantra: "Buy the coin and not the holder."
