    I know that I why I put the smiley face on there 3 times.
    One of the reasons mentioned for the 10 system was that people just could not understand the 70 thing. So I thought I would do a similar thing with the 10.

    Other than the hair and the schmutz on the fancy holder already, it looks pretty cool.

    Let’s see if I understand this. So would that be considered aVG 10 or a F 10? 😗
    To be honest JM the coin looks uncirculated even with the hair. VG or F just seems low. I’m really very good at grading. Perhaps others know 😁

    You definitely should have gone for the 1995-W ASE instead. Maybe not too late - not sure if the one the Bay is still available.

    If this speeds up the grading time of real numismatics that would be great. I remember not too long ago when grading times did not inordinately try our patience.

    Yes, I think even the EAC guys would grade it higher than VG….

    I think you're interpreting out wrong. The point is a 10 is a 10 even with a little blemish. It's actually a complement.

    Lol. That was my original point, althoughi can see how it might have been interpreted otherwise.

    People get all crazy over milk spots. To me, it's like any toning. It can be ugly, but it also can be barely noticeable.

    Besides, the point wasn't to pay $69 for the coin. It was to buy one of the first NGCX holders.

    Lot of humor in the thread!
    But can someone enlighten me to what or who NGC “X” is and why they are using a scale of one to 10 and not one to 70?

  • Options

    Because they want to create an entirely new avenue of collecting. I think the X is for genX. Nothing wrong with that. Myself while a relative newcomer I like the 70 point spread. It leaves much more opportunity to afford a certain grade of coin. This just takes away so much from the life cycle of a coin. What's going to happen to AU 55, 58, MS 62, 63, 64, 65 and up. All very acceptable grades for most types. I just named 5 grades. That's half the new scale. Not relatively but it certainly shows the vanishing spread.
    If the TPG's want it then it will happen only IF people buy into it.

    I think the X is simply Roman numeral "10".

    They use decimals 9.2=62. So you actually have just as many or more grades possible.

    Oh I didn't realize that they use a decimal. Interesting. It also didn't occur to me about the roman numeral X. I guess I am just stuck in my own way of thinking. However, I am definitely open minded. As they say, "you learn something new everyday".

    @Watchtower .... The scale is effectively a 100 point grading scale.... Based on 10 to make it easier for the less experienced to understand. Cheers, RickO
