Advice and grades? -- 1835 1/2C, 1856 H10C, 1907 Barber 10C

7 posts in this topic

Below are three raw coins I have been thinking about getting graded/slabbed.


1. The 1835 half-cent is the first coin my grandfather gave me. He let me pick from a whole slew of different ones, but for some reason I've always been drawn to the old coppers.


2. the 1856 half-dime I found at a coin show. The seller gave me the information from the previous slabbing by ANACS, but the coin was raw. I will reveal the ANACS grad after I get some opinions independent of that.


3. The Barber dime is (I fear) cleaned, but I have a helluva time discerning this. It had great toning in kind of a deep purple so I snagged it at the last coin show.


Thanks everyone!

1835 1/2C looks VF+ and close to XF40 but not quite. A touch of verdigris/corrosion might be a problem.


1856 H10C has a minor rim issue on the reverse and looks like it could grade MS63.


1907 Barber has hairlines and AU Details.

Unless something is compelling you to get these certified, enjoy the coins, keep your money, and don't submit them. The half-cent may not grade due to "questionable color" (justified or not), I think the other two will grade, but not highly enough to justify the cost. The 1856 appears to me to be MS-61 or 62, and the Barber dime is AU-something.
