Up for bid is a 2000-D Sacagawea Native American Dollar in VERY GOOD to FINE condition.
I am not a professional coin grader but have been collecting for 39+ years.
As grading is very subjective, the grading of my coins is my opinion.
I attempt to grade on the conservative side, so the coin could grade higher by someone else. On the flip side it could also grade lower.
I take pictures of both the obverse and reverse so that you may grade the coin better.
Below are the general grading standards so that you may grade the coin yourself.
About Good (AG-3). Very heavily worn with portions of lettering date and legends worn smooth. The date may be barely readable.
Good (G-4). Heavily worn with the design visible but faint in areas. Many details are flat. Common coins in "Good" condition are not particularly desirable pieces for collectors. Rare or valuable coins in this condition, however, are often saved when no others are available.
Very Good (VG-8). Well worn with main features clear and bold although rather flat.
Fine (F-12). The coin shows moderate to considerable even wear throughout. Entire design is bold with an overall pleasing appearance.
Very Fine (VF-20). A moderate amount of wear is noticeable on the high points of the coin's design. All major details are clear.
Choice Very Fine (VF-30). Light even wear on the surface and highest parts of the design. All lettering and major features are sharp.
Extremely Fine (EF-40). Design is lightly worn throughout, but all features are sharp and well defined. Traces of luster may show.
Choice Extremely Fine (EF-45). Light overall wear shows on highest points. All design details are very sharp. Some of the Mint luster is evident.
About Uncirculated (AU-50). Have traces of light wear on many of the high points. At least half of the Mint luster is still present.
Choice About Uncirculated (AU-55). Barest evidence of light wear on only the highest points of the design. Most of the mint luster remains.
Uncirculated (MS-60). Has no trace of wear but may show a number of contact marks, and surface may be spotted or lack some luster.
Select Uncirculated (MS63). No trace of wear. Light blemishes. Attractive mint luster.
Choice Uncirculated (MS-65). An above average Uncirculated coin which may be brilliant or lightly toned and has very few contact marks on the surface or rim. MS-67 through MS-62 indicates slightly higher or lower grades of preservation.
Perfect Uncirculated (MS-70). Perfect new condition, showing no trace of wear. The finest quality possible, with no evidence of scratches, handling or contact with other coins. Very few regular issue coins are ever found in this condition.
The coin pictured is the coin you will get. Grade for yourself and bid accordingly.
The coin will be in a 2X2 coin flip to help preserve its condition.
