On your PCGS coin submissions, what are the highest MS, PF and SP grades you have received?

I started submitting coins for grading in 2021 (the earliest date of the submitted coins is 1794 and the latest date is 1983, with the majority being 20th century coinage).

My highest straight grade results are:

Pre 1968 coins.

Circulation strike - MS67 on a 1943 Cent.

Proof - PF68 on a 1963 Quarter, PF69CAM on a 1963 Quarter and PF68+DCAM on a 1964 Dime.

SP - SP68 on a 1965 dime and SP67CAM on a 1967 Quarter, on a 1967 Dime, on a 1966 Half and on a 1967 Half.

1968 forward coins.

Circulation Strike - MS66 on two 1969 P quarters and MS66 on a 1983P quarter.

Proof - PF69DCAM on a 1968S dime.

As for my lowest straight grade result, it is an AG3 1798/7 Large cent.

For the coins you have submitted what are your best grading results?

    I have never submitted a proof or SP so the best grade I have received is MS67RD for a Lincoln cent. I have achieved that grade level at both P and N a few times.

    Great Question. I had several early proof cents submitted with the highest graded being Proof 68 RED for a 1953 Re Engraved Die FS-401. This was cracked out of a PR 66 PCGS holder. It remains Top Pop. My highest circulation grade would be a 1987 D RPM 3 which I bought raw and it graded 67+. That coin still remains Top Pop but I traded it for a MS 67 example plus another coin to an avid variety collector. And I never got higher that a SP 68 on any raw 2009 series cents I submitted.

    I’ve received MS69 and PF70DCAMs before, but only on mint products not meant for circulation. For actual coins meant for circulation I received a bunch of MS66s, but never higher
