coin grading

| Sir GrantsAlot

There should be more than 4 matches in the grading game on "gold" and you should be able to pick which coin you can choose instead
of them picking a coin for you. The grading game is fun but needs improvement. There should also be more games on  money.org, YN program
It would definitely make me happy if I found some improvements on the grading game. (You can play the game at YN program)

Grading is all subjective and even the best opinion by three different graders has to be averaged.

suggest a few games to the ANA. shoot them an email of what you want to see as a game and some ideas you have. i think that would be an amazing idea

Feel free to make suggestions. It may improve the grading game, & it sounds like it could be a good thing.

By the way when you see Mr. Sam Gelbard ask him how long and how much study it takes to learn grading. He will give you an honest answer. I have been grading my coins that I send out and my percentage Is 91.3 and that's twenty three years and I still probably couldn't get a job at a third party grader.Mike.

R.S.Yeoman the author of the famous red book was asked what does it take to be a grade to which he replied' a good magnifying glass., great lighting and twenty five years experience.' He ment every word. It's probably the hardest thing to learn and takes many many years of study. Mike.

The Grading Game is interesting but doesn't seem like much help learning to be a better grader.

It helped me since I only see pictures of BU condition coins and yes interesting but notice the typo on the "silver" introduction (ha ha)

I agree with Mike, take it up with this site. Give them a call and state your suggestions. They are very nice. Thanks.

Well maybe you can make some suggestions! Seriously what can they say no. But I can tell you grading is not easy. But I know there always up to new ideas. There might be a reason they do things the way they do ask. They will take time to explain it to you. It's better than not knowing. Lots of luck and enjoy. Mike.

I am going to practice some grading with my coins to help me if I don't have my coin book handy so I can grade coins accurately instead of way above their grade
