Any comments or grades that I offer are well-researched and honest. In the real world, things happen to coins over time.
They get dropped, scratched, nicked, stained, mishandled, incorrectly stored, corroded, cleaned and even doctored. The coins that I sell have been carefully chosen over the years, and most have been in my personal collection for some time. They are nice examples, but they are never perfect.
If I list a coin with significant problems, they will be clearly visible in the photos and mentioned in the text. Rest assured, there will be no ugly surprises when the coin arrives. Do NOT pay for the items until you have received the revised invoice.
