For example; something which is by-the-books VG+ or Fine is graded in the description Very Fine or even good very fine! Some dealers also won't mention bronze disease or tooling in the descriptions. Have you noticed this? I had taken a hiatus from active buying from 2014-20, so I don't know exactly when it started. I don't seem to remember grading inflation being so pronounced before 2010. Here would be my old school (1990) definition of grading, using my coins: (for simple straight wear examples, not things like porosity,bad strike, corrosion, scratches or other nebulous things) EF (aka XF) VF (although I guess very old school grading might grade the Gordian a good fine - it was the most convenient coin I could come up with). Fine Below Fine is a bit more nebulous: VG or ----- Good Fair (obverse) Poor: I don't have any pictured examples: A slick.
