VF or EF?



The person i got this from thinks it's EF. A person from coincom says it's VF. I saw a few graded coins (but no 1746) VF was too worn out but EF was too detailed. IN the PNAS nov 22 auction the dos mundos there was graded EF and i thought it looked the same with my coin. What do you guys think?

It depends upon the grading standard being used by different coin graders but in my opinion it is safe to say that it is a VF+ or what we call VF-EF. The coin has nice details and appear to be not cleaned. Is this yours?

Borg Very Happy

Yes it's mine. i think it's VF+ also but is VF+ technically a grade? i always thought that "+" grades are given to those coins that could go either way until PCGS ANACS etc grades it.

The grading standard for VF is VF-20 to VF-35 with an increment of 5 in between. Technically what Borg means is the grade ranges in between. In my opinion it should fall to VF-35. Nice coin by way, it is an expensive coin. May I ask how much did you buy it and where? thanks

Now i get it thanks. I got this from ebay and won it by mistake. I was supposed to enter $150.15 as my final bid ten seconds before it was to close. In my haste, i entered $150,15 because my keyboard is small. I did not realize that i entered a comma instead of a decimal point. So my bid of 150,15 became $15,015 instead! So automatically i would be the highest bidder no matter what since no one would enter 15k for that coin. It closed at $182.50. It was more than what i was initially willing to pay but it was still reasonably within the market range i think because it looked nice unlike most specimens that looked cleaned so i decided to get it. I was just relieved that no one else entered an outrageous amount. Although until now i haven't really fully paid for it yet since i havent seen the credit card billing statement yet. Lesson learned, never enter cent bids especially when you are half asleep and your keyboard is small.

That's a good buy at $182! Buti na lang walang "reserve price" kundi malamang baka nabaon ka sa credit card bills. Very Happy

Hi Dic, yes it's true I may have over graded my personal opinion about the coin as I have stated last time on the post. Knowing its from my personal collection.
But still I'm for a happy ebaying, once you may feel -you need to return the coin, I would be glad to refund inclusive of the shipment fee Smile pls let me know.
btw, Dic you have a nice avatar of a cory gold coin... Very Happy
Regards to all...

I also agree with FN's grading opinion of VF-35. When a pillar dollar reaches a condition of EF grade, luster is usually faintly seen around the peripheral areas. That's my experience on my pillar collections.

Hi All. New to the forum, but had been collecting a few Dos Mundos / Columnaria since the 1990s. Also go scammed with a few ones. Sad

I would also agree that its a VF+. I usually base my personal grading on the 'plus' and 'vltra' ribbons on the Pillar, and expand from there. Clarity of the globes also matter.
