    Hey if a coin on a nail can get a 64+ at PCGS, then anything is possible, right? :D

    And I'm not saying that I disagree with you. Although I do think some of these errors can be graded like the non-error versions (it's when you get to nails, blanks, webbing that it gets dicey).

    Have trouble with errors, but I'm pitching my guess at Ms63 BN.

    AU 58
    I don't like the gunk below the E reverse.
    Still a neat Error.

    Yeah, nails and blanks are just ridiculous. I'm glad we agree on that!

    I seem to have a thing for strange grades. I'm not quite sure why this is a 62. It's another example where if the TPGs thought it was AU, it should have been 58 and if they thought it was UNC, it could be a 63.
    In the end, the grade doesn't matter a ton to me on this coin as I bought it because I found the error looked cool (and I had a nice name already prepared :)).

    Because its UNC and they don't know how to grade it so they put a donkey on a board and threw darts?

    This must surely be a prime example of why it should be graded UNC or AU.... clearly not AU, but how do you grade a coin where a quarter of it is missing and replaced by its Siamese Twin?

    It could indeed be a good example. I'd say grade it like any other Lincoln cent (count the Siamese Twin as a "modified" design).

    I do sometimes think that the darts grading method is used on some coins (and not only errors).

    I missed the party, but I would have called it MS-Don’t Care. Coins like this don’t trade based on grades or price guides.
