1862 3 cent silver - Opinions
I purchased this a few years ago and took it out of the lock box to show a friend that never knew the U.S. ever made this denomination of a coin. I decided to admire it with one more look using my magnifier and thought the 2 in the date had a faint one under it. I checked PCGS and XYZ (company) and both call it a 1862/1 variety. I was please to know that. Evidently when it was sent for grading the previous owner didn't notice it or request a variety check, Question Number 1. Do you think it would upgrade to a MS63? Question Number 2. If resubmitted just for a new holder and paid the variety check fee would they then put the 1862/1 on the holder or would your just send it in raw for grading and add the fee to variety check it? The attached photo doesn't seem to pick it up unless to download it and enlarge it a bit. I personally think it deserves better than MS62 but would appreciate other thoughts and opinions especially from those of you who send several coins in for grading. I've only done that one time and the results were mixed but I managed to get a MS66 on an 1896 Morgan bought raw and had 1 of 3 2021 CC Morgans come back as a MS70.
