@Lehigh96 You are free to post anything I wrote to you in our PM's. I will not but I wish you would. As for proof? What makes you think anyone needs to prove anything to you. You're a 20+ year "advanced" numismatist. Nevertheless, your opinion about things you are not qualified to write about means "squat." Perhaps in another 20+ years you'll learn more on this subject. Other than this particular thread, I regard you as a very important asset to this forum and enjoy your educational posts. Now chew on this. If grading standards have not changed, where have all the PCGS "Rattlers" gone? Furthermore, I cannot use ANY of the PCGS or NGC graded coins I bought in the 1980's in my Grading Seminars. Every slab is undergraded. The Proof Franklin's by as much as three grades! You see, the TPGS have not changed their grading standards - they have "evolved." This from SEVERAL folks way above our (you and I) pay grade. If you cannot agree to this...I'll suggest you go to summer school in CO.
