AU coins that get the Prooflike designation
Does only NGC do the PL designation on AU coins such as AU55 and AU58 when warranted?
I asked why one of the other services does not do it and I got this response:
"He said 99% no, if he were to see a coin that the fields were PL and the devices were worn to a point where it would be a AU coin then he would consider it but it is statistically unlikely to come across a coin as such since there has to be wear in the fields for a coin to be considered AU and a PL coin needs to maintain a proof like surface across the whole field to get the PL designation. He is aware that PCGS and NGC are "experimenting" with the PL designation on AU graded coins."
