Can anyone tell me why Cdn coins in the US are sometimes graded both MS & PL with the MS having a number i.e MS65 and then PL written somewhere else on the same holder label and which takes precedent. (I apologize for the crappy pics).

In the photos of the 4 coins side by side, I was wondering if any are mis-attributed such as being labelled MS when it`s a PL or vice-versa.

Old small white ANACS holders for PL Coins were all like this . Just ignore the MS designation .
The coins are always PL and not business strikes.Have bought and sold many over the years.

The MS coin may have a higher-than-normal degree of reflectivity on the field finishes which is a reminiscent of a Proof Like finish. NGC uses the PL or DPL also after an MS grade if applicable. Usually you see it a lot on Morgan dollars. Mint State with proof like finishes. -Once a coin is out of the PL package and enters circulation mode maybe?

The MS stands for mint state, which means uncirculated.
The PL designation refers to the depth of the mirrors. PL must be at least 2" depth of reflectivity, DMPL or deep mirror proof like require a minimum of 6".

please explain
2" depth of reflectivity means it reflects itself from 2" away from mirror?

Has absolutely nothing to do with the definition of a CANADIAN PL COIN.

@ Pacificoin - Could you please elaborate ? The rims ? The sharp detals & depth of strike (multiple strkes).. Is there an easy way to tell just looking at a coin that gives it away ?
