Grading has gone to shit

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Yes I know everything is subjective and I know a lot of people on here don't like TPGs as it is, but I'd like to really start a rogues gallery of some of the grading from TPGs that's doing the rounds.  I've just spotted this and it pains me as I have a much nicer 1887 crown slabbed as MS63, this one is MS64 and I'm shaking my head at how people have become so reliant on them yet what they are giving grades to is utter sh*t. Standards have dumped a lot. Bring back LCGS

So here's an MS64 1887 Crown slab number 6271095001

AU - but nothing special, a bit shabby in fact. Perfectly average, I used to sell those for £1 and there weren't many takers.

Unfortunately only admin can edit it now as its been too long now for me to edit. Maybe @TomGoodheart has the possibility?

Yes.....   'Grading'  , in my mind at least, refers to the ridiculous practice of paying people to tell you what you already knew,

so you can sell to a twat who can't tell and won't believe the seller, and, as such, is an obnoxious word and should be removed or replaced. 🙂

 

All the other words are are fine with me.
