I just purchased these Indian cents and I'm trying to figure out the grading process. could you let me know how you would grade each one. and why. I know the pictures terrible. I need to figure out how to take the pictures with a camera and not use a scanner.

Thanks
Casey Parman

all seems to be in the VF-25 range
circulated coins that have strong rim details
and no distracting spots or scratches
Liberty,feathers on obverse and reverse leafwork is solid
your pics are decent by the way

i have been trying to take pictures with a desk lamp and a camera and I can never get them to look decent. sometimes 1/2 the picture will look amazing but the other 1/2 is terribly dark. so I just scanned them.

Thanks for the input.

I believe they all look like VF's except the last two I would call Fine. The shield detail is gone on the last two and the lower part of the head bands are almost there but they don't look complete

Thanks for letting me know about the shield I actually didn't even notice it. do you know what would cause the black stops on the 1900?

I got some better pictures. I am not sure if I took them write. You can see the detail better in them.
