On a red cent what degree of spots are allowed? Or are they not allowed at all, or can there be small scattered spots, I know big ugly spots would get bagged, but was just wondering about the tiny ones on ms reds, and do they affect the grade, seems about any old 30s to 50s wheatbacks have some spots, I have several to submit but don't want to waste your time and mine without knowing about these spots, I have seen some coins in NGC holders with these really not to noticeable spots! But not many! Thanks

Spots do not determine whether or not a coin is designated red. A coin can be red with spots, the spots are factored in the grading aspect. Of course the more prominent, larger, and number of spots is in part determinant of how high a coin can grade. Posting a picture or two of your cents in the coin forum and getting feedback might help you out also.
