What is the largest grade increase you have received after…

AlanSkiAlanSki Posts: 1,828 ✭✭✭✭✭

A crackout or reconsideration? Mine was a 3 grade increase from a small ANACS to a NGC slab.

    Really, thats pretty significant

    I had an old Irish guilt piece that went from AU58 (NGC) to MS64 (NGC). I expected a decent bump but not like that.

    Having fun while switching things up and focusing on a next level PCGS slabbed 1950+ type set, while still looking for great examples for the 7070.

    So what does this tell you about grading companies

    It tells me different graders have different opinions. It might not necessarily be the companies themselves, but the graders since it’s my understanding you could get different graders each time.

    I have several ANACS photo cert coins that I sent to PCGS that upgraded significantly. A few examples. 1818 Bust Half went from AU55/55 to MS62. 34 Washington quarter went from 65/65 to MS67 at PCGS. 1875 S double dime went from VF30/30 to AU50 at PCGS.

    Need a Barber Half with ANACS photo certificate. If you have one for sale please PM me. Current Ebay auctions

    Not sure what a "guilt piece" is. Did you use the grocery or rent money to buy it? ;)

    I have an ANACS photo certified coin that I resubmitted to them decades later. A 1982 no "P" strong strike Roosevelt dime. First time around, they graded it MS63, second time around it came back MS66.

    Both my crackout grade jumps occurred with proofs. One from a PR 66 - PR 68 and the other from a details to a PR 62.

    Panama 1980 100 Balboa gold uncirculated (very rare) went from ANACS66 soapbox to PCGS69 PL. In hand it was a no-brainer. PCGS True view I could not get to post.

    I had a Carson City double eagle that went from PCGS 40 to PCGS 53. Twice before winding up in the 53 holder it was details graded.

    I've had a few go from details grades to straight-grades. How do you count that? 64 points??

    The one that really mattered was a 1927-S Peace dollar that went from MS65 to MS65+. At the time, it made it a top 5 coin and represented something like a $20k jump in paper value.

    I had one like that as well-UNC details to 69-I consider it 9 points (UNC details = 60) but others might disagree with that scoring.

    I have gone from "body bag" to MS-64. I've also gone from "body bag" to AU-55.

    Both bags resulted in a loss of 100% of my grading and shipping fees, which does not make one happy with some third party graders.

    After reading these posts, it seems like my “best” isn’t much - a 1894/1894 Double Date IHC from PCGS 64RB to 65+RB. Still, a nice upgrade….

    A half point on a tougher coin is more valuable than a multi-point gain on a common coin.
    It might be interesting to see the biggest increase with the smallest dollar value change (like a 1938 Buffalo nickel going from 60 to 65 would be a big jump but minor in terms of value difference).

    One can only imagine what this would do if sent back in.
    Although I have no interest in doing that, as I love the holder that it’s in. Plus the price increase for a grade or two up really isn’t enough to worry about.

    I bet CAC would give that coin a gold sticker without hesitation. Beautiful coin.

    If you sent the coin to CACG it would come back in a 58 holder.

    Just kidding. Great looking coin.

    Morgan I bought went from 4 to 7. That was the biggest unc jump.

    I took a VF30 to an AU50 with a type that was wildly undergraded by a TPG in the early 1990s. That's my biggest circ jump.

    1889 Seated Lib 25c PCGS PR66 to PCGS PR67+ Cameo.

    A stunning neon pastels coin that I paid double retail for in a Heritage sale, then cracked it out and sent it back to our host 4 years later.

    I know it is the same coin yet the date looks stronger in the PCGS photo rather than the NGC.
    The VF grade certainly looks appropriate too.

    The only way I can respond to this thread is to say I have went from an ungraded coin (which some persons view negatively as they prefer graded coins) to:

    1. MS67 (1943 P Cent);

    2. SP68 (1965 SMS Dime); and

    3. PF69CAM (1963 Quarter).

    I have never (yet) submitted a graded coin for crossover or for reconsideration.
