Below are the typical grading standards for American Silver Eagles.

MS/PR/PR 67

At this level, the issues with the coin are more obvious. There might be some hairlines or milk spots that are more numerous or thicker. Luster must be very strong with only very minor disruptions. Some post-production contact marks are permissible. Must be very well struck, but some slight weakness is permissible. Some distractions like milk spots are acceptable.

MS/PF/PR 68

A Silver Eagle in this grade still has a strong strike and luster. However, negative issues are more noticeable and might include contact marks, hairlines or more numerous milk spots. Luster must be outstanding. Some minor post-production contact marks are permissible. Strike must be complete and sharp. Eye appeal must be high, but there may be some more noticeable milk spots.

MS/PF/PR 69

In this grade, a Silver Eagle is still fully struck with strong luster, but it has nearly imperceptible flaws. Such imperfections might be a flashy strikethrough or a small, unobtrusive milk spot. Luster must be outstanding. Very minor post-production contact marks are permissible. Strike must be complete and sharp. Eye appeal must be outstanding.

MS/PF/PR 70

For a Silver Eagle to receive the highest grade on the NGC Grading Scale, it must have no post-production imperfections visible at 5x magnification. This is the most sought-after grade, as collectors prefer the best example possible. Luster must be outstanding. No post-production contact marks are permissible. Strike must be complete and sharp. Eye appeal must be outstanding.
