I really find this a challenging series to grade. I've learned a lot here on CCF, in that die states and strike quality really affect appearance, in addition to wear. That being said, I see the horn pushing a F, but I look at separation between rim and Buffalo head. I don't know if that's an accurate measure, but it's what I use to determine a VG. Because of that little separation and blending of rim into Liberty on the obverse, I say VG-08.

Nice coin. I'm not sure about the AU and up grades as I don't generally purchase this series at that level. However, it seems to me that a lot of the higher end grades consider remaining luster, which often means it needs to be seen in hand- at least for me. I'm in the AU camp on this one but have to leave the specifics to the experts.

I think XF-45. Nice definition in the hair/curls and reverse feathers. Cameo on obverse is attractive. Need to see it out of the holder to get a look at those rims.

Hello everyone. I'm interested in your opinions on this one. Thanks for the feedback. Pics show a bit darker. Some luster sneaking out in hand.

I like this 1963 Five Franc Piece. A bit on the darker side but nice colors in hand.

Hello and Happy Holidays to all!

I'm a classical coin collector who occasionally drifts into ancients, however..My brother-in-law got me this for Christmas because he knows I'm interested in the Civil War and coins. I don't own any paper money or banknotes, so I'm at a loss as to where to begin. I would appreciate any information on this: condition, value, where to find more info online, etc.

I thought this might be the place to start.

Thanks!

I was surprised to learn that NGC doesn't guarantee authenticity. I discovered that while trying to understand their grading system. Actually, buying slabbed coins was the approach I thought to take to try and avoid counterfeits. Anyway, this is my first purchase.

I have been primarily a US classic coin collector. I also collect a bit of world silver mainly from the 19th-20th century. Recently, I've become more interested in ancient coins, especially Roman imperials. I got to see some great coins recently at the Baltimore show.

What's your advice for getting into this field of collecting? I've got a few books and see a bunch of links here. Any specific books, sites or tips?

Thanks

What are your thoughts on this? She's a rough one. I think it needs some attention. First set of pics are most accurate in hand.

I appreciate the feedback and comments. Admittedly, of course, I'm the owner, but. I can't see F15 at all on this one. I think it's an easy VF-20. Looking at Photograde, slabbed examples and right now reading ANA Grading Standards.

According to ANA:

VF-20

Obverse: More than 1/2 details still show in hair (easily); Drapery and lower curls are worn but bold (check); Ear, clasp and curls are plainly visible (more than plainly visible in fact)

Reverse: Head and leg are worn, but some feathers visible ( more than some- even the talon is detailed); Most details in wings are clear (for sure); Motto is complete ( yes, but a bit weakly struck); Half of horizontal shield lines are separated (more like 80%).

No distracting marks (ok, I'll try the acetone), no hairlines, rim is pretty decent. I don't see how this grades any lower than 20; in fact I was of the opinion it was higher when I bought it. Nice uniform cameo and toning.

I'm interested to hear the reasoning for the F15 grades. Thanks

Hello,

I generally collect classic US coins, but am interested in getting a few of the America The Beautiful 5 oz silver coins. I'd like them in the box with COA, not slabbed. I don't have a price reference for these; could you suggest one? I've looked at past sales on eBay, but prices seem all over the place. Any tips would be appreciated.

Specifically, I'm looking at

Gettysburg
Grand Canyon
Sand Dunes
Harpers Ferry

Thanks
