almost mean about the same
You get a “Best Answer” nomination for that one. LOL
I must have heard it both ways when talking coins. Another thing though I rarely buy that low of a grade.
"About " deals with time. It tells you that something will happen in the near future. such as regrading an old coin grade and making it better by some graders."Almost" does not necessarily have anything to do with time, it is what it is now, and if ugly and details, will stay that. IMOO
@Pickin and Grinin thank you
Not sure I agree with that. To me 'about' means kind-of-semi-sort-of while 'almost' means not really but close.
When used as a preposition, about means; on the subject of, regarding, concerning, with reference to or with regards to etc.
I think in this instance it is an adjective.
Wait! The Canadian's are our friends?
Currently altering time ( speed up or down ) is not deemed possible except in the most extreme subatomic conditions. so time travel seems to be limited to very exotic subatomic particles. A coin grade should never get better physically, only possibly worse. One can believe in "fairies", "angels" "invisible things", etc., but
physical abilities of change do not exist except to the more disassociated condition. Graded coins should only get worse over time. IMHO
New Best Answer! lol
Well, slow up and slow down mean the same thing.
Separate names with a comma.
