$2.5 Indian Head Gold Coins MS 64
MS 64 is the contraction for the denotation "Mint State Grade 64". This grade is part of the Sheldon coin grading scale, which was developed by William H. Sheldon in 1949 and is widely used today by the most reputable coin grading services including PCGS and NGC. These are the top two independent coin grading firms in the United States, and ITM Trading will only deal in graded coins if they are marked "PCGS" or "NGC".
Specifics of the Grade
A $2 1/2 Indian gold coin in MS 64 will be pleasing to the trained and untrained eye alike, and any nicks or dings will be smaller and /or less conspicuous than a lower graded coin. Any defects by the U.S. Mint, or the minting process itself, will probably not be visible to the naked eye, but will require a low magnification and a trained eye to detect. A $2 1/2 Indian in MS 64 will have a golden sheen to it more even than it's lower graded counterparts.
