    Is this a Graffiti Coin? I seen other coins labeled scratched when two lines intersect like an X. I know others on here have posted coins with X marked on them would this be the same?.

    eh, could be.

    Or the biggest coincidence of random marks.

    These are less intentional looking.
    I'm assuming you're talking about mine... Which looks like someone hammered a screwdriver or something to mark it for whatever reason.

    I think it was a method used for bookkeeping. If you want to choke on your lunch, here is one of mine.... Myself, they don't bother me. It makes coins like this affordable to me.

    As TP grading is what it is...subjective and inconsistent for starters...on that particular day at PCGS someone(s) must have felt the marks weren't of the benign sort and didn't quite measure up to certain "details" for whatever reason(s). That said, I agree and glad it was straight-graded.

    I don't think so. I like the coin for entirely different reasons, anyway, having nothing to do with the Grade or which TPG graded.

    Ah, possibly because it is a "gem?" Those marks are not significant enough to override the coin's eye appeal. Graffiti goes INTO the coin's surface and NOT ON it.

    They look like they could be bag marks. The graders must have agreed that they are. Nose, eye, chin...

    I want to believe that too, I sure would not be bidding on it myself but I do understand the 24-S/25-S often get a pass as the graders know they are difficult to be found with a strong strike or clean cheek. It's possible GC photo has over amplified the look of severity as I buy from them often with mixed results in expectations.. last coin in the mail has been a true gem undergraded and gorgeous but the photo I was kinda expecting a dog of a coin but it priced as a good deal had it turned out to be.

    Its a beautiful coin I don't think that was human caused just a coincidentally X formation from a few marks.
