    Will a coin with this type of edge damage grade? Or would it be considered as Details by NGC/PCGS/ANACS? I don't know what could have caused this type of damage, and it's the way I received it. I would have guess a staple, but the damage seems a little more severe for that. I do not think that it's damage at the Mint.

    Also, if I see that type of damage on the fields or devices, then I'd say it would be a gouged damage of some type. But I've noticed often that edge damage gets treated differently.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. It would still grade and probably have rim damage on the label..

    But that'll be Details then, without a number grade by NGC and PCGS, right? I know ANACS does it differently, and I actually like that they assign a number grade.

    Correct.

    Sort of. For circulated coins they do, anything uncirculated that gets a details grade gets MS 60 every single time which I think is rather pointless. There's no difference between just saying everything is MS 60 vs Uncirculated Details. I can see the value of a number grade for AU or VF coins as there's kind of a wide range but 40/45 for a details coin or things like that I don't really think matters

    So just to be clear, my coin is definitely a Details grade?

    That's true, ANACS will give it a number grade but it will still be in a Details slab.:D Just so you know, most experienced coin collectors won't buy or even look at a coin that's in a Details slab at all, unless it's rare. If it was my coin, I would count my losses and move onward to the next coin. ;) In short, I wouldn't pay to have a coin placed into a Details slab. better luck next time. :D

    What is the coin? What's the diameter? Can you post photos of the obverse and reverse?

    It's a 40mm Korea brass coin, one of the turtle ship theme types I collect.

    If the same exact damage was seen on a 2019 ASE, then will it grade?

    Looks like damage. Either ICG Unc "damaged rim" or the circulated grade (ICG AU-58(?) + "damaged rim."

    My opinion is it will get Details.
