SOME FACTS ABOUT GRADING AND CLEANING

I believe it is necessary to make a commentary on the grading I choose to make. Often remarks are made that the coin does not reflect that grading, sometimes under graded, other times over graded. I always insist that grading is not an inflexible mechanism and often depends on reference to the condition of the best coins known of that specific year and value. In other words a coin dated from 1960 absolutely perfect is easy to qualify as uncirculated, if a similar coin was from the 1900, 1800 or earlier it would still be uncirculated even presenting blemishes, bag marks and even scratches. In other words a coin could in strict grading terms probably be somew above F and under VF but I chose to qualify it as VF/XF because of its age and compared to similar coins offered in the market in the last years. If the name represented really the coin and was not just a convention between collectors VF (very fine) would indeed be a very fine coin and not a coin already with its obverse and reverse showing circulation and traces of wear.Not all numismatists accept this interpretation but one does see it happening more and more with the serious grading company which will grade an old and rare coin well above its actual condition due to its rarity or uniqueness, this fact well appreciated when using the american grading system with 70 possible grades. Never to forget that PCGS and NGC, two of the better known third party graders, don’t always agree on the grading of each other, often to large degrees of difference, auction houses are also well known for this. As long as grading depends on a human decision and on subjective factors t will be controversy. Another fact often open to discussion is the cleaning, most coin collected between some years to hundred of years old may have been cleaned at some time or other (the mint of USA used to clean their coins regularly in the old days, articles to this effect are numerous on the internet ,but I would quite happily own any coin belonging to their collection. Spinks in their catalog even suggest different cleaning techniques, this from the oldest commercial dealer in coins in the world). I personally believe that a coin which as not been cleaned by any abrasive means or ...
