PCGS Straight-Graded Counterstamps, Chop Marks and Defaced Coins thread
It seems like the topic of chop marks being straight graded comes up a lot on the forums. I've certainly seen people ask questions about why many times, the latest showing up again in the thread: Buying obviously damaged, but ultra rare varieties....
There's some concern that chop marks are treated differently than other counterstamps and punches that are not graded, so here's a thread showcasing the different types of marks that are straight-graded by PCGS.
Please post more such coins in this thread, both ones that are straight graded by PCGS and those that are not, but you feel should be.
