Are these Graded Correctly?

I recently started trying to improve my grading skills. I have the grades and pictures on this spreadsheet. If you want to see the higher quality pictures just click the link above the pictures. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16KpTVDGWFJxMzPnly4ozmyq8T45WhLpWF4mwG50jSLA/edit#gid=0

    You may want to post some images here and ask. You may find a lot of people are not going to use links to a spreadsheet or anything else here. Are you able to post images of a couple pieces? I’m sure you will get much better responses.

    I graded this MS-66 FB

    No, the 1945 dime isn’t graded correctly. It’s not FB and the reverse flaws make it appear that it shouldn’t grade higher than MS64.

    Did you recently post here under a different identity?

    Why would it not be considered FB?

    Simple because the middle bands are not split. Look at some actual high quality images of the differences and you will see it.

    With that said, looks like you already asked this, didn’t like the answers, and now have a new username. As I assume you will be removed, maybe better to try a new forum, though you will get the same answers unfortunately. Good luck!

    I got a more zoomed in picture than I had. Plus im genuinely trying to learn how to. Can you give me advice on some other coins in the spreadsheet.

    Best you move on to another group. I’ve read your previous posts under a different banned user name. I can’t offer any help to you, as there seems to be little knowledge and hopeful dreams. Good luck!

    Edited to add: it may seem like we are being difficult but realize you are on a very respected coin forum with basically most of the experts in coins posting here. I personally have been involved in this hobby for over 30 years, in many cases this makes me a youngster here!! Coin collectors are very attention to details, which carries over to attention to looking into dealers and their “reputation”. I think you are doing no service to yourself here, matter fact are digging a bigger hole.

    I will comment that it is a much better than average strike for a 45-P dime.

    you feel this is $25K coin? What is under the U on the reverse? Is it a strike through?

    Quite possibly a strike trough it doesn't look like a scratch.

    No one can grade from your images correctly, but that is no MS66

    Regarding the FB designation, while that is a well struck 45 Philly, it is not FB. Close doesn't count.

    That said If it is a straight grade Unc (maybe) and you can get it in a PCGS FB holder, it's a score, regardless of the MS grade. But I would bet you can throw good money after bad chasing that all day, and you will not win that bet.

    Ignore the negatives. If you get into a contest with them, it will just get you banned again. Focus on the actual helpful comments.

    not going to turn you in but no one may have to do that. they'd read a thread like this.

    screams finnscoin 66 is too generous. did you grade the obverse and the reverse both? that reverse is beat.

    I'd be more inclined to believe you were acting in good faith if you misgraded a 1943 walking half. Instead, you "misgrade" a coin that would coincidentally be worth 25k.

    Lets see your in you mind :# the 1867 seated half dollar you wished is PR 65 cameo. or the 3 cent piece.

    @FinnsCoin

    Are you still going to attempt to set up at the show.

    I would still like too. I can meet a lot of other collectors and people buy the coin, not the grade. If you want to see the coins you can click the google sheet link.

    I also regraded some of them with harsher grades. To be completely honest a good camera is such a big factor I could see many more marks than without a good camera.

    So you are honest that the seated half is really pr 68 and cameo and tell anybody if you attempt to sell that its correct.

    Did you actually buy it at that grade? :#

    I am going to stop responding. It is too hard to read your sentences with all the missing words and grammatical errors. But I am going to be fully transparent with those who buy from me. I also never listed the half dollar as PR68 and I bought it raw.

    This was a very fair proposal and also a generous offer by yspsales. It was your path to redemption, knowledge, and head start to becoming a respected coin dealer.

    Then….your response is honestly disappointing. It shows to me that you don’t want to take the initiative and put in any actual time or work.

    It's a genuine answer. I don't know where to start. I don't know of any coin clubs, the one dealer I know is a one man show, and I think this account will be gone by Monday.

    Start at the very beginning... it's a very fine place to start.

    Join a club.
    Attend a coin show.
    Take it from there...
