"1874 $3 Gold - Looks horrible!" question by ^
I listed this item and thought the heading described it perfectly - the coin is beat up, gouged and worn so I was expecting to maybe get the gold value for it. Instead, it got bid up to $150. Why would that happen? I know some of these in perfect condition go for thousands, but this coin really...

"95% of the coin's detail must be struck up" critieria by frank wight
When reading grading standards criteria I occasionally bump into a statement saying ninety-five percent of the detail in the devices must be struck into the coin. This has caused me some confusion in grading such things as SHQ and Kennedy halves. In the case of the Statehood Quarters, I find that...

"Authentication Only" vs. Net Grade by LRC-Tom
I bought a Morgan collection which includes three key dates: 1893-S, 1894-P, and 1895-O. All are decent coins based on details (wear), but each has problems such as scratches or cleaning. I intend to submit them to ANACS for authentication, but I haven't decided whether to have them give a net...
