I am not saying they're dishonest, but they do not grade each coin they look at equally and are inconsistent. You can't prove anything for or against on market grading but every dealer claims it happens.

I agree with Daniel. But, mostly trying to confirm, it is not a science.

:eureka:

if you read the fine print in each of the TPG's sections on grading, they even tell you that "grading is subjective".

The two left Morgans are graded at 64. The right is graded at 65.
so those marks in the fields on the right coin are not signs of cleaning with a brush? and it is just a super-weak strike, with no wear whatsoever? i kind of thought to make 65 or higher the strike had to be very good and all details present... so much to learn! :confused:

i guess your use of the word "greed" briefly had me triggered... greed does lead to bad, bad things, that's for sure.
