I've been spending the last couple of weeks going through my silver dollars and I'm looking for some help on grading King George V dollars. I'm not the best at grading silver/larger coins as I primarily focus on cents. Any opinions are appreciated! I've labeled each coin to make grading easier!

Here is a post that I made on a thread on another site. Maybe it will help. I, personally find it nearly impossible to grade off a photo on a computer screen, as you lose a great deal of actual wear or rubs, depending upon the quality of the photo. The grading sections are good to save as a reference for further use:

also, enter the PCGS site and look at coins/grades that have been certified by them .. the photos are in there. Also look at Ebay completed auctions and the grading guide that is right here on this site, but not accessible through this actual discussion forum. There is a very nice coin grading, as well as pricing(estimates way too high) and varieties for that year/date. Here is the link for the "CoinsandCanada" grading section for this CaC site. Just go to for other nice references

For some reason, the first link that I sent (from above)isn't putting the full address into the actual link that's in blue. It also, for some reason, capitalizes the "n" and "g" in the address for the part that spells "grading". All that should be in capitals are the "G" and "C" in grading coins. You will have to copy and paste the full link to be able to connect. It has always been the BEST grading reference on the internet. You may have to play with the cut and paste, but it's worth it. If all that you get connected to is the "Wayback" site, just enter the old discontinued site address into the proper spot on the "Wayback" site. BTW, that Wayback site is great to get connected to any site that USED TO BE on-line, but expired. The Coinoisseur coin site was the best on-line for ages.

Slight loss of beard d mustache detail on both coins
EF (British grading), the 1935 a little better, and a slightly sharper strike as well.
AU-53 (1935)
AU-50 (1936)

I agree with ockiecoiner's comments about screen shot grading, but I like to see CCF members have a go anyway, because it is a 'better than nothing' learning tool, to be able to grade for yourself.
