Meaning no disrespect, I can't grade from these images especially if the coin is in the 64 or better range. And angled shots only frustrate and irritate a serious grader.

They are fine as long as they are supplemental to normal, over the coin shots. It would also be nice if they were rotated and oriented properly.

Could someone please help me with a estimated grade range for these? Not individually of course. I gathered the best pennies from this date. They are all around the same condition and tone.

I divided into 2 groups of 4 for the best viewing quality that I could provide.

1st group Front and Back






2nd group Front and Back

Thank you for the replies. Yes, I should have started a new thread but I didn't want to flood the front page.

But I will start a new one and post many other coins denomination that I believe are in the same grade level.

Could someone please explain what it would make these coins grade higher besides cleaner field and maybe better/more defined strike? Feel free to use one of the numbered examples for reference.

In the new thread I will post bigger and clearer pic of a single coin instead of a group.

They all look to be in the 64 to 65RD range.

Generally, the priority in grading is:

1) eye appeal
2) luster
3) fields
4) subtract for distractions

Strike doesn't much come into play until you hit MS-66 and up.
