Big kingdom - The cert verification number for it is 11120248. It's clearly stated to be an MS68, $5,200 coin on the member's webpage as well. I can see why you would assume it could be an error, but it seems to have legitimately received that grade.
And it's not just this coin. You can see many weak drums and scratches on the top-pops being displayed on coinfacts. This was just one example.

And I know what you mean about the weak strike possibly being a factor in the grade. I've heard that from YouTuber BlueRidgeSilverHound as well. I've also had many people telling me that the grade of a coin is only affected by damage received after the coin has been successfully minted. This makes sense because if the former were true, particular error varieties and Vams should also receive a lower grade in comparison to the metaphorical "Vam-1".

But I can understand your assumptions because nowhere have I seen the companies suggest one way or the other. It's all just "subjective" which means absolutely nothing. They could have it one way or the other, but the fact that they don't gives me much concern, as it should for everybody here. There is a lot of money riding on these discrepancies, and it shouldn't be hard letting people know the truth.

67 v 68 is always going to be a crap shoot. Send in 100 identical coins and 99 will get 67 and one a 68. Just how the game is rigged.

Fenton - There are many ways to retaliate if the coin community gets fed up enough with it. Like Earle said, they could easily adapt a technology that adds precision to grading, but the only thing they've implemented thus far is a better way to track the coins.. basically something nobody asked for.

So they can track the coins they personally handled and gave designations to "professionally" (subjectively), which all fall under a pricing system that they themselves fabricate.

I can't think of anything that could go wrong with that
