How Are They Graded And By How Many Graders?

2 posts in this topic

Hello, Been submitting coins to NGC for 2 years now. Many rumors fly around as to what happens to them and who and how many graders actually see them? And for how long they are actually viewed? And are they "really" viewed on both Obverse and Reverse sides? Are the graders using loupes or are they just viewing at arm"s length? And, if at arm"s length, how do you ever see all the hairlines[ if present] without any magnification? Do more graders view the more expensive coins? Are there less graders for the coins valued at 300 dollars or less? If one or two graders call in sick on any given day, are there enough graders to keep the process moving that day? Does it ever happen that only one grader will view the coin? Maybe you can dispell some of the rumors for me. Thanks. Supertooth
