Grade advice: Neu-Guinea 1 mark / post-PCGS Restoration update
I find that where my perception of a grade differs from that of a TPG service, the disagreement presumably arose from how I scaled the severity of hairlines, bagmarks, or a rim nick. I am not particularly bothered if my judgement errors +/- a point of the grade received. When the error exceeds a point difference, however, I take it as a sign that I need some advice!
Thus, I would like to present the below coin for commentary. In grading this coin, I arrived at 65, whereas PCGS arrived at 63. What did I miss? What do you think held it back from a higher grade?
