Position Paper on the Grading of Hand Struck Coins
For some time now we have been writing about and enquiring within various marketplaces the expectations on the grading (slabbing) of hand struck coins. The discussion has been, at times, contentious. There is a relative difference between the hand struck coins and machine struck coins.
Hand struck coins often do not have the full inscriptions available on coins and as such can often not be fully attributed.
With this in mind a summary has been made of previous written advices so that all may understand, clearly our position.
Our clear position paper with accompanying video will be published this weekend.
