Ncgx - Do We Really Need A 10-Point Grading Scale?

I'm not a fan of the new scale. But, I'm not as concerned about the new scale as the Vaultbox SCAM with which it is associated. This is about as low as you can go NGC. I'll make my statement by discontinuing to do business with NGC and and send my coins to PCGS if I need grading.

Because the toning seems to be on the tops of devices, they may considered it Questionable Color. I've seen coins that clearly came from albums that were graded both ways. If someone has a detailed criteria of how they determine Questionable
CoIor I'd love to see it. I think its a crap shoot. Personally, like the coloring!

No worries. I once thought a piece of gum wrapper was a lamination! Turned out to be Spearmint.

Why Is The US Mint So Bad At Recognizing Obvious Problems? Here Is Some Variety

I'm going to take the middle of the road on this topic. Quality is in the eye of the customer. I've had proof coins from the mint with errors on them. I also understand that circulation coins in high volume will always result in imperfections. While I understand the mint's tolerance for errors, I am a believer in the quality process. First, anyone should be free to identify errors in the minting process. Second, root cause error removal (if appropriate), so you aren't repeating your mistakes. Lastly, continuous improvement. Never stop reaching for better results. It becomes a matter of degree of perfection. I'd like to see the U.S. Mint as the standard that all mints aspire to regarding quality.

Nice! Seeing split serifs is something a lot of new collectors miss when they see doubling. Very clear.

The nice thing is that there are lots of really nice 1995 DDOs to be had. You can buy a nice one for less than $50 with great doubling. However, finding one in the wild would be much more exciting as a treasure find!

I have to agree with others. I have a 1963 DDO and the duplicate middle element of the "3" is very visible. Sorry.
