Anyone can explain what is a PF 3 please? Never seen it before. I though a pf starts from 60? 

PF- Proof, is the Strike Type which has no bearing on a coins Numeric Grade- 70 we are all familiar with, but the grade can be as low as 1 !


I think the coin in your photo has been harshly graded!  Likely a missing digit on the label.

It's actually a 3!!! I thought it was a typo on the label, I have a coin on my hand with several scratches together and the score is 66...if it's a 3 what would it look like...but if If the wear is too serious, it will be a detail

Try looking at the coin / medallion instead of "buying" the slab / grade!

While most people will shudder when I tell them this....I have bought three coins I wanted that were graded and (very carefully) jail broke them - none were super high grades btw I do still have a couple of high grade slabbed coins

But then I also take coins out of secondary mint first day covers (Harrington and Byrne, London Mint etc).  I do keep RM coins in their presentation or blister packs but never secondary mint presentations.

I dont really care much about slabbing tbh, it can be nice though sometimes to protect/display special coins. I just saw this coin online and i thought something was wrong. Wanted to ask the experts 😅
