FUN Show - How tight was PCGS grading?

I was not able to make it with some coins that need to be graded. How was your experience, if you submitted?

    I submitted one coin for show grading, a chopmarked 74-P trade dollar.

    IMO, 40/60 it would straight grade. It had a couple of light but not distracting hairlines and had been over-dipped (not by me). I don't claim to be an expert but I have some experience with these. It has low AU details but due to a total lack of luster I wouldn't have been surprised if it came back XF.

    It did come back cleaned...as a VF

    I submitted 8 coins on a Standard submission, plus 1 for conservation evaluation/regrade.
    I assume it will be several months before I have results.
