Help Grading my Kennedy'a (again)

6 posts in this topic

Hi I am posting the Kennedy's again, in a smaller size.

I hope this post will help in grading Thea's coins.

Thanks to all who suggested that I do this.

I am so sorry no matter how small I make them they still came out huge.

Sorry Alan...can't do it. You need to have better focused photos....even then it is very difficult for proofs...if not impossible to grade by photo.




EDIT to add: Focus may not be your problem...it might just be pixels. ie need higher resolution.

I repeat, Proofs can't be graded accurately, based on images, even good ones.

Agree with Mark here Alan. Even the best of photos of proofs would only get you in a ballpark range. If your looking for a PF70, your probably better off buying one already slabbed.

The major factor in grading modern proofs is the number of hairlines. Hairlines are very difficult to see in photographs. Just for reference, most modern proof coins (late 1960s onward) routinely grade in the PR68-69 range.
