Grading question

#1 Unread post by 2centsal » Tue Jun 25, 2013 10:57 pm

I'm a little confused ( as usual ) :l . I've seen slabbed coins that say "Cleaned" on them . I have a 1836 Capped Bust Half lettered edge that just says : Genuine, NOTGRADABLE on the back . Why does PCGS do this, or is it a choice of the person submitting the Coin who knows that its been Cleaned ? I mean it's evident just by the serial number that ends with a 92 . Is it because they couldn't fit everything on one side ?? That's my guess. Also, as you can see it's slightly rotated .What grade would you give it. It doesn't look cleaned to me. Maybe it's re-toning .

It appears cleaned but the submitter can choose for their coins to be Genuine but with a net grade like VF, AU. etc. So it's up to the submitter because the choice is on the form you fill out.

Very interesting, I did not know there was a choice in that.

PCGS just changed this in the last year or so. Even a problem coin has a net grade and PCGS should have thought of that much sooner.
