A short time ago I bought an 1861 3 cent silver piece from a friend that has a rotated reverse of 180 degrees otherwise known as medallic alignment. It was a raw coin and I sent it off to NGC for grading and attribution of the error. The coin is a solid AU coin showing virtually no wear and to my surprise NGC slabbed it an XF-45. I showed the coin to my coin club president who had worked as a professional grader and he said it should have been labeled an AU-50.
