GOLD SHIELD & TRUE VIEW. Thank You for your interest and business! This is my contribution to the. Numismatic community to preserve history and to foster new collectors.
Merely stating what should be obvious. So please understand the following. Please Note, adjectives used to describe the coin are best efforts within a limited font space provided, to best accurately describe the coin.
Note, the use of the word "GEM" is used to describe a high quality coin (not a grade), and could also refer to the rarity of the coin regardless of the quality. Also note, The Sheldon Coin Grading system (please Google to see) does not use the adjective "GEM", instead the word "Mint State" is used; of course a coin would actually have to be graded to use this adjective. The term "GEM BU" is used frequently used but "technically" does not officially refer to a grade (Google). I do acknowledge that this may differ in other countries.A word about Toning, note that the environment causes toning for all coins. This can be from light colors to dark and although beautiful, at times can be excessive damage to become Not-Gradable. Note, A Not-Gradable coin with UNC Details & Environmentally Damaged, is still a UNC coin which has all of the beauty of an UNC coin. Has damaged the coin beyond the scope of grading possibilities.
Also, some coins may have high grade details, and still possibly shown signs of being cleaned at some point in history. Again, the coin is likely Not-Gradable.If a coin has an actual slab grade, the grade will be listed in the title description. If there is no grade, none will be listed. Please read that sentence again.
Again, Thank You for your business!
