However, the coin has problems. The reverse has a big glob of material stuck on it at 7 o'clock. Even more problematic, all of the brown stuff on the reverse is actually dirt or something. It is thick, and encrusts much of the reverse. No way should that get a CAC! I'm ok with a little bit of dirt, but this is extreme.

This one is part of a date set that I bought a few years ago. NGC '65. Did she 'green' or did she 'gold' or did she 'bean' at all?
So yes for a Green CAC
Here's one. NGC graded this 1838-P Classic Head $5 AU-58. What do you think?
Here is a different view of the same coin, which is bit closer to it actual appearance.
Yes it would, but I have a simple question about...Why doesn't CAC just assign a grade without the involvement of another grading service?
The founder knew that a new grading service would not be economically viable, even with him running it. Others, like ICG and ANACS tried and actually made a good faith effort before they had to say that breaking the hold that PCGS and to lesser extent NGC have on the U.S. coin grading market is unbreakable.
The CAC founder was able to leverage his reputation into a viable grading service. At the same time he was able to set up a situation where he and his dealer compatriots could buy coins sight-unseen with great confidence.
No to the bean on the Classic Head half eagle that jumped the line. Those hairlines worry me - I wouldn't expect that many hairlines on a 58, although the wear looks right for the grade.
@physics-fan3.14 reply I believe he zeroed in on what I was searching for. I get romantic over early gold and I want to see it have the sticker and have vacillated twice now with my answer...... I am going to say yes. I do believe it is a solid 58 and deserves the bean.
Yes to a green sticker.
