Where do coins land on grading when there's such a difference on the two sides? Is the lower grade the final number?

I believe this one would be a details grade due to the huge scratch to the reverse.

So I mnow the gouge fetracts. But it is on the back.. So with details grade. Would you even value it at g4? Trying to start cataloging some of my mess.

Coinfrog. I'm writing down whatever you guess. Best estimate

I would think that the coin would grade out with VG-8 details (damage/scratch). There's obviously the reverse scratch, but the coin also has a scratch at about 4 O'Clock on the obverse, as well as what appears to potentially be some damage just to the left of the date. I'm not trying to discourage you at all, but I personally would value the coin at about $5. You might find someone willing to pay higher, but the coin's eye appeal is below what most collectors are looking for.

I net grade coins when cataloging my collection. This one I'd say AG-3. That reverse is pretty ugly.

The gouge detracts too much...it's not very suttle...obverse is a Good.

I dont believe a TPG would assign a numerical grade to this coin. when they assign a numerical grade they are actually assigning a value range to the coin. depending on the TPG I think they would either grade it at a net AG3 details (which I doubt) or G details(damaged)
