    I’ll start things off with a 63.
    Based on my recent track record, I won’t be surprised by anything between VF Details and MS68+.

    Same here. I wouldn't trust my grading skills over a third graders. Especially when looking at pictures.

    Should be no higher than AU55, might be details but photos are usually hard to tell.

    Album filler. About uncirculated. See photos for details. Original mint luster remains in periphery. Appears to be improperly cleaned. This just means (to my view) the dip exposed too many distracting marks in the focal areas. Thus , reducing it to non gradeable.

    Alright guys thanks for engaging on my first post. Here's the reveal.

    1896-O, I haven't seen it in person but I highly doubt it's uncirculated. I had to do a decent bit of searching to find any proof that NCGS even exists. Shame on them for their shady practices. This is my grandfather's coin. HA shows that MS64s go for over $30,000. I sure hope he didn't pay near that much.

    Looks like one of those dart throwing grading companies. All the grades are on the wall which ever grade the dart hits, that's the grade assigned.

    From the small amount if info I've read about NCGS, their coins were largely sold through rip off TV sale shows. I also read a post I believe from cointalk forum that mentioned they were sued in a lawsuit for allegedly trying to imitate PCGS. Seems like the company is thankfully gone or incredibly obscure. I'm an atrocious grader, but the coin appears to be AU and likely cleaned to me.

    Dart throwing would result in some conservative grades, not just inflated ones. I don’t recall having seen the former for coins in that company’s holders.
