If I go to https://www.PCGS.com/valueview/vict...7876&g=61&h= for example it seems like PCGS has graded 15 such coins. Is there any way I can see all 15 of them? Three are shown across the top but that's all I can seem to find.

I would guess that you cannot.
The pictures would commercial in confidence between PCGS and each of their clients.

The population report is all that you would get, and the only information the collector base really needs, anyway.
Just be thankful that PCGS has provided population reports at their own expense, free of charge, for us all to utilize.

As most of us know, PCGS Photograde provides sample pictures of graded U.S. coins

PCGS doesn't have images for most coins they grade. PCGS Gold Shield (with the shield on the label) includes imaging as part of the service -- for those coins, the image is shown on the certification page for the specific number on the label (but you have to know the number, you can't just search for one).

Otherwise, you just have whatever images they have for each population report (typically the highest graded they have available), or whatever images might be available for each auction among the recent sales (but those take a lot of clicks to land on, assuming you can get there at all).

Hi Sel
It's doubtful that the pictures are in confidence with their clients as the small print specifically states that the images belong to PCGS and that they can utilize them as they wish. I've had coins of mine in the images that they show including a coin that I submitted. I don't mind that they use the images.
I'd also have to disagree that the 3 images are all that the collector base needs as those of us interested in identifying individual dies need all the images that we can get; plus even the less advanced collector might want to see certain varieties and as an example the so called S/D 1943 shilling has several slabbed examples up to MS65 but none are shown on the PCGS website.
Plus the images are provided free of charge on the website not as a kind gesture but for sound commercial reasons (if you keep going to THEIR website to look at coins then you are not on a rivals website and when the time comes to submit coins for grading you will most likely go with what you are used to).

The 3 coins shown are plate coins, the nicest ones that PCGS has images of..so they post them as examples of the issue. The rest can't be accessed without knowing the cert number of the coin itself.
feel free to call me Will. I'm a 19 year old collector from the GTA area of Ontario.

Thanks neal and thedollarman - shame, because I agree that three isn't enough when you're trying to do some research.
