Truth is, and it might seem mean, if you're a seasoned collector your views on grade are just as good as anyone working for a TPG. The only difference being is that you don't get paid for your opinion.

For the collector who has actually taken the time to learn how to grade I agree, however there are those who would rather just take the TPGs word for every grade.

It's now extremely rare that I buy and coin site unseen, not just raw coins, which is kinda sad because one of the selling points most major TPGs use is "with our grades you can be confidant buying coins site unseen". But because it seems every TPG has a major Achilles heel ( ICCS Straight grading problem coins, PCGS overgrading circulated coins, ICG straight grading problem coins AND overgrading them) I just can't confidently trust any of them to get it right enough to where I feel safe buying a coin sight it.

I will bid on this one but not at AU53 prices. MANY bagmarks and very little if any luster remaining.

There's a lot of wear on the hair and on the leaves and the hairband should be really sharp.

If you buy an overgraded coin, can you sue the grading company ?

Unfortunately the TPGs have themselves backed up pretty well in that, they could grade a coin with damage, no luster, as a straight grade AU and people will still keep lining their pockets.

Not that I think they should be sued for overgrading a coin, but I do think they should be more accurate and consistent seeing as they really like to say the service they provide allows people to buy coins "sight unseen".

OMG!!.............

PCGS AU53 1872-H key date Canadian 10 cent.

$900.00 USD !!

Honestly, I'm torn whether I should feel sorry for the buyer of this coin or take the attitude 'it serves him/her right for being so uneducated'.

Wow, that 1872 is I'm a VF-35, maybe an Ef-40 if you can chalk the weakness up to a weak strike.
