NGC Grading Standards

2 posts in this topic

There is often discussion about how grading standards are changing. I collect Proof Krugerrands, and here is a NGC-graded coin (not one of mine) that, to me, is graded way too high.

Take a look at cert 2778575-003 that is graded PF69UC. Here is the URL for it:


From NGC's own "grading-scale" page (https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-grading/grading-scale), it says:

PF69: A fully struck coin with nearly imperceptible imperfections

You do not have to look too hard at the images on the certlookup page to see multiple problems, nothing close to imperceptible here --- rub-marks on both sides of the coin, dings on many places on the rims, to the point that it looks like this coin could even be ex-mount.

How can I get a PF69UC for my coins that look like this? ;-)
