Does the planchet flaw on this 1875 French 5 franc coin mean PCGS will not straight grade it?
I could use the group's help. I very recently purchased a raw 1875-K French 5 franc coin at auction. To be honest, I didn't pay enough attention to the planchet flaw on the coin (9 - 10 o'clock on the reverse - see photo), which was mentioned as a planchet flaw in the auction listing. It's a pretty coin, IMO uncirculated, and I was planning on sending it to PCGS for grading.
However, I know one disqualifying factor for obtaining a straight grade is "planchet flaw." Do any of you have any experience with what constitutes a big enough planchet flaw that would result in PCGS deciding not to straight grade a coin like this one? Here are some photos:
I would value any advice.
