    Sent a bunch to ANACS on their latest special and as usual the results weren’t what I expected. A lot of them were early coins that would probably be difficult to sell raw so I was mainly looking for confirmation that they were genuine.

    This one is really nice in hand so let’s compare your thoughts with their grade.

    Well, if you're asking the TPG if it's genuine.......I pass.

    I wasn’t asking but there are a lot of people who trust TPGs instead of themselves.

    I sent in 15 coins, 7 of them dated between 1795-1807, and all 15 are genuine.

    I'm one of them. No way could I verify or confirm if your coin is genuine or fake. I mean it looks real but I could easily be fooled. I'm not an expect.

    IMO AU 58 Appears to have slight wear.

    Either AU-55 or AU details. The pics aren’t good enough to judge the surfaces.

    I know my stuff, but I also know when I should rather let a professional make the call.

    The ‘38 large cent appears to be a problem-free low AU coin. ANACS called it AU-Details, right? Eng damage? PVC damage?

    AU55, but ANACS cannot grade copper consistently IMO. They often undergrade these days, in my experience.

    I think they’ve been tight for a little while to try and get a reputation back but I don’t think it’s working.

    Since ANACS gave this coin a 50, I think 55 is correct if graded by PCGS or NGC.

    IMO ANACS graded this correctly. "Grade Deflation" is real and the so called top two TPGs have been the guilty ones. Maybe ANACS will start a trend in properly grading coins, especially in the MS category.

    I’m at a loss as to why everyone thinks this coin is undergraded, there is very little remaining luster.
