    Round 5
    Just to rehash the basic rules. You must have previously signed up to compete for the prizes. I will post pictures of 3 coins and round will begin when all pictures are posted.
    You can submit 1 grade per coin and no grades will be accepted and you cannot edit posts after the actual grades are posted. As with all the rounds so far Bahabully will post the actual scores when he gets them together...
    Round 5 will end Saturday Feb 19th at 7:00pm Pacific time unless all the contestants get their grades in early...

    Another bit of good news.....we got some score dropping to do after this round so those of you who missed big with one score will squeeze up with the pack....
    Ok first coin.
    Graded by NGC Sorry about the slab glare...too many scratches

    66 - I hate grading these things !!

    Mercury - MS65 tough with slab scratches, but some look like they are on the coin
    Morgan - AU58 looks like wear above the ear and on the breast...well, we know how well I judge that from round 3..he he
    Jefferson - MS66 not a nickel guy, but this looks like a very nice example

    the planet closest to the sun = 66
    the overrated chunk of round silver = 64
    and the monument that look like it is need of a renovation = 65 I want to go lower but not knowing Jeffersons, does the FS bring the grade up a couple of points or what?

    #1- 64 Looks like a small hit at 2:00 on the reverse, I hope its not a scratch in the plastic
    #2- 65 don't do to many morgans but this one looks good
    #3- 66 not really sure on this one, but the full steps are impressive

    Merc - 66fb think it would get a 67 if resubmitted, don't like that hit on the bottom of the rev's rim though

    Morgan - 65 and smoking, don't like the larger hit on the eagles breast but it's kind of hidden and the light grazing on the face keeps it from higher but I like it

    Jefferson - 66 not full steps
