    Hey guys,
    today I want to show you a type of coin I had an eye on for a long time.[​IMG] It is a Mohur that was struck by the East India company in 1841. The obverse shows a young head Queen Victoria. The reverse shows a lion
    My main collecting area are german gold coins, but I collect attractive world coins as well. I found this Mohur on a german coin website for a price of 2350 Euro. It has not much rub, but the surfaces have scratches. What would be the grading of this coin? Would it achieve a numeric grade or is it just an ,,au cleaned''?

    Thank you very much!

    Let me start by saying that gold is not my area at all. With that said, I think the numerous scratches on the obverse would prevent it from a straight grade. If submitted to either NGC or PCGS, it is likely to warrant a details grade. It is still a very nice coin!

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    I don't think it was cleaned, but there are some pretty serious scratches on the obverse, especially around the date. I think this coin would come back with AU details, scratched.

    I collect only gold coinage. Here is a German graded fast stempelglanz I bought from Wag Auction/ I would say Kunker would grade it sehr schon+/vorzg. US TPG slab=EF-45 IMG_0701.JPG IMG_0702.JPG
