Will a TPG grade a 'no date' coin (meaning date has been worn off), and more importantly "date" that no date coin IF the coin can be dated by attribution?

(the coin I believe is a 1795 no pole half cent)

Thanks for any responses.

Absolutely. The example that comes to mind is a Morgan dollar worn down to almost nothing that still certified as an 1878 Philadelphia solely because you could still make out the eight tail feathers exclusive to that issue.

There are also the Presidential dollars that are missing edge lettering (which is where the date is located). Each of those was issued in only one year so the date is unique to that issue.

Would love pictures, I have seen ANACS slab coins with the NO DATE designation.
My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now, for around 2 years. I love early American coppers. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad (I own most of the coins we sell, and he owns most of the currency), and most of all... I have fun!

Visit my eBay store, I have lots of BINS and auction style listings:

Absolutely if the remaining visible detail can be attributed to a single year of issue type that was struck at only one mint.

Another example is the 1921 Peace dollar. This was a one year, one mint high relief issue and there are certified PO01 examples (I have one) where there is no trace of the date remaining on the coin.

A TPG would NOT certify a single year of issue coin that came from multiple mints if the specific mm could not be identified.

Yes they will. There are a lot of coins that can be identified without dates. There are many one year only types, there are pieces with readily identifiable die variety features. Your no pole Liberty cap half cent. Can only be a 1795 or 1796 but they have distinct different reverse dies so even without the date you can say precisely which year they are (Although they are more likely to if you tell them which one it is. Otherwise they may just say "Dateless Liberty Cap".). Think about the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter. Even dateless they can bring in the thousand dollar range.
