I came across this basement grader today, and usually laugh at most basement grades, but I actually have no problem with this one. They seem quite accurate, and that's nice. I've got some examples for y'all below. I'm in no way affiliated blah blah blah. What do y'all think?

1902-O: USCG MS-66+.


1880-S USCG MS-65DMPL


1902 IHC USCG MS-66+RD. This is the only one I feel they were too generous on, I think this is a regular 66RD.

My best finds: 1999-WAM:http://goccf.com/t/332161 1988-RDV-6:http://goccf.com/t/335954#2873459 1986-Off-center: http://goccf.com/t/335952
1999 WAM #2:http://goccf.com/t/338710&whichpage=1
1981 Double Struck In Collar: http://goccf.com/t/350199&whichpage=1
ANA id: 3194067

Other than the first one I think the other 2 are over graded.

The 1880 S with the cheek bruise should be MS 63 obverse. The reverse is MS 65 so I would say MS 63 overall. That cheek bruise really lowers it for me.

And the IHC is MS 65 at its best, more like MS64 with all the dings. But most TPGS are over grading coins so I'm not surprised that the grades are higher than photograde.

Hello Everyone,

I'm a newbie to the site and just wanted to put my 2 cents in on this grader.I have been doing some research on this for awhile now and I have some ideas/questions. This company does not have a website and hasn't for at least 2 years and probably more.This I know for sure as I bought the domain 2 years ago. I consistently see this slab for sale on just one auction site and I now believe the Auction site are the ones doing the grading. I saw an 1884-S Morgan graded MS-64+ by USCG that just looking at pic I would say was an AU-55+. Question? Do you think anyone in their right mind who has a coin like this and the value can jump quite considerably (100,000+)in just one step up or down, would give this coin to a no name grader? Personally I don't think so. Question 2: The one thing I haven't researched is if a auction company is allowed to grade their own coins, put a label on them that lists a different name than the actual auction company?
Just wondering.....

Well since there no legal requirements or regulations, sure they can do that.
