I thought the coins were plated after they were struck ?

Nope. Plated prior to being struck.

Check out this Dec. 5, 2016 Youtube video from Jarden Zinc Products that produce the zinc planchet (They started production as early as 1981) The electroplating starts at the 55 second point. There is also video of the burnishing process for proof planchets as well.

I wonder, if the treads were stripped would it have received a "details" grade?



This is something else to take into consideration to start up the PBGS service.

I think taking bolt head scarring from previous screwdriver use in the slot on top would also be a very important area to asses for damage/grading. The tip might needs its own assessment as well.

We need to get together a group of people who have been handling/selling bolts for years to start this up. Every bolt a contractor uses (no matter their own personal experience with handling hundreds and thousands of bolts) should be submitted to PBGS in order to get a professional opinion on the bolt as to its trustworthiness.

Hmmm...its the first time a business effort like ths has been tried for bolts, so maybe ABACS: American Bolt Association Certification Services

OK...OK... I'll stop.

Its just amusing to me mimicking "reality" can sometimes be ridiculous

I find it odd that the threads were completely erased on the obverse but remain quite prominent on the reverse. I have no better explanation than Condor101's idea that the collar provided much of the resistance to the impact of the obverse (hammer) die.

Thus the split plating on the strong strikes that expose the zinc.

Whoa there. I just looked at the pic again. The bolt itself is definitely damaged by the die impact. It will never fit a corresponding nut again. And there are most definitely rim dings on the head as well as what is almost certainly rust/corrosion in the groove.

How is this not a details grade and/or labeled as damaged/corroded/environmental damage etc.?

They need to crack it out and re-submit. It should be covered by the PCGS guarantee which says if you think a submission is over graded, you can send it in and they will not charge you if they lessen the grade.
