Do Obvious Forehead Hits no longer count towards grade?

Yet another solidly graded PCGS coin!

What an abortion.....
I seriously wish there was a place we could post this stuff where PCGS was forced to look and be embarrassed.

Wow, maybe a 62 there huh. its a horrible MisGrade. Something needs has be done on that one it should never be allowed to be bought or sold as a 66.

Obviously disappointing especially to those that have put forth the effort to obtain quality for the grade examples. While I have constantly pointed to the subjective nature of grading and that some opinions are better than others, this seems elevate these beliefs to a new level.

It's bad out there at this point. To be blunt and frank, anyone who is buying higher graded Ikes based on the PCGS label alone is outright foolish.

It IS THAT bad.

There was a horrific PCGS MS69 73S BS that went off Great Collections last week. Wow. I guarantee that thing struggles to make it in a MS68 holder 3 times out of 10 if submitted raw.

You MUST be fully competent in grading to even remotely think about risking good money Ike at this point.

That 71-S MS66 is atrocious. However, have you seen some of the PF70's for sale? Some of them would have to battle and beg to be a PF69 let alone anything higher. Amazing.
