Mint Error Uncirculated.
That's the grade it should get.
Ill Guess Au55 RB, seen a type 2 blank planchet get ms 68 I was like what the heck. So I never know on these.
That works for me as well.
Double Struck 1961-D Uncirculated
Hey if a coin on a nail can get a 64+ at PCGS, then anything is possible, right?
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.
I’ll probably reveal sometime this evening.
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.
