I'm looking for some help with my grading skills , or lack of them. I've been grading some of the notes in my collection I want to be sure that I'm giving them a proper grade, or at least close.
I'm posting pics of some bank notes going from the grade of G to UNC . For each one I will show the grade that I feel is appropriate and the reason for my choice.
I would be grateful for any input , such as the grade you may give and why I might be over or under grading.
Thank you for any help.
I give this one a grade of G
It is well used with no firmness
( however , it is whole with no tears and because of that I wonder if it should be G+) ?
VG for this one
It is limp yet retains a bit of firmness
lots of folds and creases
with a major vertical and horizontal crease
Im giving this one a grade of F
It has multiple folds but only a small area where there are broken fibres.
it is generally firm
VF for this one , but I wonder if it should be F.
it has two places with creases with broken fibres
and other smaller ones
about half way between firm and limp
EF vertical crease in the centre
with some wear on the edges
AU fold on the top left caused by a paper clip
no broken fibres
otherwise a nice looking note
UNC (or Better)
I can't see any flaws.
