    Hey guys :),
    how would you grade this Indian Head? I bought it as a raw coin, what is not
    suspicious here in Germany.
    Greetings

    I dont know. I saw a king George gold piece in here a few weeks ago that was MS61 with similar damage. I think it could still get a decent AU grade.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes? Supporter

    I don't really see any circulation wear, and I don't see anything severe enough to call damage. I see quite a few marks, but nothing too severe.

    I'd call this a 62.

    Id put a range of MS60-63. Good to put a range in as we cannot see the coin in out own hands.

    I don't know. I am quiet sure that this coin is a lower mint state grade. I just wanted to know which one :rolleyes:

    I don't feel the coin has anything I would call damage. I'll go with 62.

    MS61 is a pretty bad grade for an UNC coin and implies that the coin has some “minor issues”. If it’s clearly damaged, then it should grade UNC details instead. Not sure how strict the TPGs are with world coins (King George?) compared to US coins though...

    61/62 by my lights. 62/63 by the TPGs. I don't see any disqualifying damage.

    Above the eagle’s head. Maybe it looks worse on the pictures than it really is.

    Thank you very much for all the opinions :). I think this coin is a classical MS62 and could rather be considered as investment gold. For that reason I didn't send it in :yawn:.
    Grading a gold coin has a price of 35 Euro = about 40 dollars and this type of coin is not realy popular.

    Actually, from the scratches on the reverse of the coin, it may end up as MS Details. It would be a gamble to send it in if I am being honest.

    But that are contact marks form other coins. Low MS grades are not gem condition. Nethertheless even a MS 63 would probably not worth grading, because of the fee is too high :dead:
