what would you grade this CWT?

3 posts in this topic





it's been cleaned at some point and is retoning pretty nicely. I didn't even see those marks on the reverse until I saw my images.

I took the pics in nice sunlight.


btw, it's a monitor token. I'm curious about grading on these because they sure seem to be overgraded(at least to me) at times when slabbed.

I'd grade it "bad." So, please send to Hoot, c/o Warm Strings Mental Facility, Askoshtotheleft, Montana, 55555. And stop these rediculous posts on CWTs. insane.gifinsane.gifinsane.gif

The obverse looks like a choice EF, but the reverse shows signs of cleaning, retoning and scratches. As such I'd have to net it down to VF-20 or so.


These pieces tend to come in grades ranging from EF-40 to AU-55. I've never seen a full red Unc., but I've also never seen a piece that was worn to down a "true" (not net graded) VF either.


Like most Civil War tokens, these pieces did circulate for very long.
