They would probably never officially grade PO-01 due to date and mint mark clarification.


Lowballs should still be identifiable by date and mint mark. That there is almost nothing else is exactly what the aim is! I bet these get the PO-01.
My hoard of '82s is up to 204! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 15, 1782 x 57, 1882 x 49, 1982 x 33

Picked these up a few weeks ago. I have a hard time turning these down close to spot. They would probably never officially grade PO-01 due to date and mint mark clarification.
Amazing!

The one on the right looks perfectly identifiable to me. 1899-O.

I once had an opportunity to get a CC mint Morgan in only slightly better condition. Sadly the negotiations didn't work out (we couldn't figure out a payment method). I still don't have any CC mint coins (Morgans or otherwise).

Connor, you mean they would not make PO - 01 because they would be PO -005?

Those coins are amazing and real classics. They look great and I love the even wear. They are collectable because they are so worn. Enough survives to say Morgan dollar and thats great.

One of them is a New Orleans too, a better than average mint mostly.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Maybe too much detail remains on this. The last digit of the date can be made out as a 7, making it an 1807.

I've often joked before that the grades below Good really should have a lot more subdivisions that they do - and Poor-1, in particular, is way more expansive than one might naively expect.

In a particularly convenient example, 1793 chain cents come in grades all the way down to "there's a slight hint of a chain on one side", which would normally have been way below Poor had there been such an option, but the unique design makes them still identifiable even in that kind of grade, and the sheer rarity (and popularity as the first definite US coin issue, though there's some dispute about the 1792 half disme) means that even in that kind of grade they're still very valuable. So you end up with coins slabbed as "Poor-1" that are actually far lower.

Here are a few more lowballs I added recently. I'm going to add a picture to my lowball roll the next time I pull it out.

You guys are going to love this Australian Sixpence



You can make out its 1912 and its the size of a sixpence.

Australian silver from the 1910s is seldom found in high grades at the best of times (My best pieces come in around Fine and even VG for some dates), but this is a new level of worn.

It might be Poor 0.8 or 0.9 rather than 1 - because this coin is crazy!

How many of these are there?

Oh.....don't answer that question.


It looked like to much meat in this slab for a straight PO-1 but I guess it was.

Love to have any straight PO-1 in a slab.
