    Ok this time you can GTG if you like but I want you to do actually is list the 3 dates lowest grade to highest grade. If you wish you may asign a grade to each.... there are 3 nickels an 1936, 1937 and a 38 D.

    What Im trying to teach or show you is basicly is eye appeal, over asigned grade. The 36 is in an NGC holder, as well the 37 the 38 D is in a PCI slab.
    Now again I ununderstand that we are working with an how we each see these can varry with each others perception.
    Again Lowest to highest grade, asign a grade if you wish.... plus any comments you may have on any specimen. 20201121_142546.jpg 20201121_142604.jpg 20201121_142616.jpg 20201121_142638.jpg 20201121_142738.jpg 20201121_142753.jpg

    So i do believe that the folks here afe bucfalo out.
    So I will post the results...
    This was a tricky sort by the TPG the lowest to tightest would be the 36,then the 38 D and the 37.
    However the 38 D is a 38 D/D and in an old pci green holder. To be honest that coin without a doupt is in hand under graded by 3 pts , the 36 NGC holder is in a 63 is under graded in hand by 2 pts.
    I do realize that yeah it is a total differences in hand as to a photo.
    I've owned 38 D's in 67 and the pci coin is knocking on a 67 in hand.
    The 37 is spot on .

    Tom was correct by grade assigned ,knowing Tom over the years, he is an honest dealer who sell quality coins. And has an eabel eye on them.
    JTlee again I've known you for years and know youre another who eyes are sharp.
    Publius2 we havent known ea h other very long but again from your post theres no doupt you're another pro....
    The images were a little off as I didnt want the 38 D D luster to burn out your eyes. It was a cheap purchase in an old pci slab that I wont crack out as I need not a slab TPG grade convince my eye as to what it actully is....and besides I collect slabs too so the slab is important to me as the grade. 20201122_150722.jpg 20201122_150739.jpg 20201122_150747.jpg

    That was a fun variation on GTG. Missed the '37 but happy to see it with a 67.

    Nice looking mini-herd. I figured that PCI '38 had to be a D/D, I could just see it to the left and below the top of the main D, a little glimmer from the underlying D. I personally would have graded it based on the images as a 65 and figured it was in a 66 holder. I was surprised to see it in a 64 holder. The '36 is most certainly undergraded unless there is something I can't see in any of the images. I think it deserves a home in a 65, 64 at the very least. The '37 is right at home in that 66 holder to me.
