Ok Gals and guys.
(Hopefully, there are also Lady- members in this forum?)
This subject probably has been kicked around many times and one of you will most likely say something like: go and google it or search the forum's previous posts. ok, that was a choice.
BUT, since this is a forum where people are here (hopefully) to learn something new (hopefully) every day. I have decided to illustrate and raise the issue again.
Perhaps it will be boring for you old-timers (oh, not again why is he doing that again.). Hopefully not, as it most likely is of interest for many new and perhaps long-time members. The question is simple.
But the answer may not be that simple!
The question is: would you have any of these two 1 cent coins graded by a TPG?
IMO, These are UNC, perhaps might even make BUNC. Or if not, the next best thing to it.
And yes, there may be faults? and, maybe these faults are not real faults? It all depends on how you look at them.
I have a handful of them from 1937 down to 1969. they were just taking up space as these are outside my collection interests and need to find a new keeper.
So, obviously, the question is: would you or not? (they will have to make at least 64 or better to break even). Either way and NO offense, your answers AND reasons will be much appreciated.
(and that has nothing to do with $$$) Probably not just by me, but by a good number of other members who are in a similar situation.
The images were taken with NO artificial light, just simple daylight, and reflect the colors as close as possible as they are.
The coins are NOT cleaned!
The visible marks and detraction? well, YOU decide what these are and how they affect your grade!
However, there is one important aspect I would like you to consider:
Please do not derail this post by comparing these 2, or other small 1 cent coins which might be posted addressing this subject, with your experiences with OTHER denominations.
This is about small 1 cent copper coins ONLY!
Other Canadian coins are not copper!!
And please do not forget, a macro lens magnifies everything multi-multi times.
Good luck and have fun!

I'm no expert on grading pennies sorry. So I'll just throw what I think they could be. Rely on someone else's comment though. Lol.

A: 61-62
B: 62-63

I wouldn't send them into a TPG myself.

No. They lack the grade and eye appeal for my own send/do no send criteria. That said, ICCS might like the top one (clean fields), but PCGS would certainly not (busy devices).

These ones are not copper. No Canadian coins are copper. All Canadian small cents are bronze, they contain small amounts of tin and zinc.

No.

A: Too many marks on the face
B: Splotchy, irregular toning, unappealing black marks.

No.

But that is because I do not collect slabbed coins.

But if I liked to collect slabs just b/c I liked to collect slabs (and didn't care about the cost of slabbing), then yes.

Here is a great video about how even experts cannot predict what a company will actually put on a coin, so even they cannot turn a consistent profit using the companies.
