MS63 star???

4 posts in this topic

star means exceptional eye appeal the coin could be overgraded



low end for the grade


undergraded or solid for the grade



all this star means is that when the graders ALL THE GRADERS agreed it had exceptional eye appeal for the issue and also the finalizer who looked at the coin agreed too if ONLY one disagrees then the coin does not get the star


most star coins i see are exceptional eye appealling coins but i must say as of late i have seen many star coins that are NOT exceptionally eye appealling and at best an average coin


eye appeal is the most subjective of the designations the service gives it is a good thing but like everything else it is in the eye of the beholder i have seen coins that have the star that are monsters and others that are ugly to me and some that have no star designation and are total monster star coins to me


the star is a great thing IF and when a coin is a total exceptionally eye appealling coin


and the above is my understanding in reading many posts by the ngc graders and finalizers and talking to the people at ngc




it has nothing to do with a coins grade
