You guys might have missed my question about Mercury Dimes. When it says FB , that means all 3 bands have to be split, correct ? I checked a website that Said NGC requires all 3 bands to be split and PCGS requires just 2. Is there any truth to that ?

Really your question should be a separate topic but I did miss it. I have sent many dimes to PCGS and unless all three bands are fully struck and split then it will not get FB. I am sure they're a little more liberal on older examples, but modern coins they do not budge.

The idea was to start a glossary here so people could reference while they're reading post on this forum.

PCGS glossary, among others, are great, but wanted members to offer suggestions or ask questions about them.

Maybe I should do this another way?

Forgot to respond to this one. I guess I could ad them but it might confuse people since MD and SD and these both are considered Strike Doubling. I could put in a foot note.

I'd recommend a locked thread with the definitions so the prattle doesn't confuse the definitions. Corrections should be made in a separate thread and then applied to the locked thread once approved.

Definitions should give more than just an expansion of the letters: DDO - Double Die Obverse. What is distinct about it that I can determine it is not die wear or machine doubling.

Just a suggestion.
