Crossover confusion...

Does specifying the grade on a crossover get you a higher grade?

Do the graders know what the original slabs grade was? Do they know the minimum to crossover?

    You can't request a higher grade on a crossover. The coin may cross at a higher grade if the grader believes it's worthy. Or the coin may cross at its current grade, or a lower grade if you request to cross at any grade.

    Any thoughts on this ANACS 1971-S MS68 $1 - Will it possibly grade the same or 67? +? Only a slight scratch at 9 o'clock.

    You can't request a higher grade on a crossover. The coin may cross at a higher grade if the grader believes it's worthy. Or the coin may cross at its current grade, or a lower grade if you request to cross at any grade.

    Please excuse the question. I am trying to learn something.

    The PCGS Crossover page lists four (4) options for the minimum grade:
    ~ "current";
    ~ "any";
    ~ "details";
    ~ and "other".

    I thought that "other" permitted the submitter to specify a higher grade.

    What am I missing?

    That's new to me, perhaps they changed. However, what would "acceptable" be?

    Thanks for the response. :)

    Based on the context, I assume it means a minimum grade, other than "current", that would be acceptable to the submitter. It would cross if it met, or exceeded, the specified grade.
