1856 Trime GTG

As seen in my other thread, I recently acquired this three cent piece for VF price. It is raw, but please GTG anyways. :)https://youtu.be/1qoU3KEP5t0?si=RUxoxaW19TVIL0ZF

    Looks a lot better than VF or XF. I think your poll should have some low MS numbers in it but I went with AU58.

    How can you guess the grade, when it hasn’t been graded?

    it should be more like estimate the grade; but GTG has a special ring to it. ;)

    (Edited, after viewing all of the images): In that case, my ETG is AU55, shot 53.

    It looks nicer than 58 for detail and almost looks like it has full luster. However, I’ll guess details because it looks like it might be bent. If you look at the right thumb when obverse is being moved under the light, I see a possible crease.

    Please remember to turn up the quality of the video, for some reason YouTube automatically puts it at a lower resolution.

    You can not grade this by your video but if I have to guess and you were to send it to a tpg I would say details XF as it appears cleaned and bent

    AU-55

    I'm seeing sharp AU details, and nothing in the video jumps out as evidence of cleaning to me. I do see the possibility of a slight bend too. If you pause the video at 17 seconds it seems like the crease would run from about 1 o'clock to about 7 o'clock, but it's hard to be sure without it in hand. As a raw coin for something like 7070 album purposes I like it very well, especially for VF money.
