I have red a lot of crap from that company and had a lot of laughs, but now seeing them calling an average circulated and AU55 certified coin a

"admirable clarity of design resulting to the higher points, a semi-Prooflike characteristic to the surfaces enabling clear reflectivity across the fields"

just brings numismatics to another level of unprofessional behaviour.

How far will this company go?

Where are the limits of exaggeration on a clearly circulated average low-grade piece?

What do you think?

Here is the listing:

PS: I was not paid to advertise for Heritage. Just wondering what is going on. What is here proof-like?

That's not exaggeration, it's meaningless nonsense.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

PCGS really isn't the best at grading much outside of US stuff, and even then I often find their grades to be 'off'. But I do not ender stand how the straight graded with that big stain across the obverse. Smh.

It maybe a scratch, but the one going from the man's ear to the rim.

The description sounds as if a bunch of numismatic-related jargon were random scrambled and entered into a computer program that arranged them to make a sentence with proper English grammar and syntax.

Reminds me of the verbiage used by estate agents.

( UK estate agent = person who sells houses )

I agree that the grade is high - I might say Extra Fine using US standards but there are problems with this one. Good advice would be to buy the coin NOT the grade as shown.

There was a time when a coin with what looks like corrosion in the dentils under the denomination would return in a body bag.
