Each of the coins offered here has been independently authenticated and graded by NGC or PCGS, the two most respected grading services. Dates & grading service (NGC or PCGS) our choice.
For those new to coin grading: Coins are graded on a scale from 1-70. An MS-1 (the MS is for "mint state") would be a coin barely identifiable, while an MS-70 would be a perfect coin . Uncirculated coins start at MS-60 with an MS-63 coin being considered "choice" and MS-65 examples and higher being considered gem. The term "superb" is often used for MS-67 and higher grades. The MS-62 coins such as those we offer here are coins which are a small mark or two away from making the choice grade, but should not have the more distracting features that a MS-60 or 61 coin may have.
