Early Date Grading Challenge - grade posted
OK, here's a primer for all those armchair grading experts out there...... and a chance to hone your skills if you plan on attending Steve and Doug's seminar at EAC 2012.
The coin posted below is a late date 1798 S-153. Chime in and give me you sharpness and net grade, including condition (Average, etc.). I come back at you with the "experts" opinions in week. You can click on the photos to enlarge, I think.
Let's see what you you can do !!

We have some real experts here. The coin is the Dan Holmes specimen lot 278 (nice comparison there Mr.Jazzysjets !! ). My grade on the coin is a 30 net 20 A-. Bob Grellman Graded the coin a 30 net 25 (as can be seen in the Holmes description). Bill Noyes has it listed in the Condition Census and graded 25 net 15 A-. Del Bland has it listed in his Condition Census as a 25. So there you go ! Thanks for your participation. Thanks for your answers. The next will be a bit more interesting.
