Question about MS grading
How can a coin with a dig can be graded MS 62 and gold shield ? Is this mark a flan fault pre strike ?
SOUTH AFRICA. 5 Shillings, 1892. PCGS MS-62 Gold Shield.
KM-8.1; Hern-Z37. Single shaft on wagon tongue variety. Sharply struck and lustrous in the fields with soft mauve and russet tone along the peripheries. SCARCE in this quality and if not for a mark behind Kruger's head, almost certain to have received an even loftier grade.
Estimate: $1,800 - $2,400.
