Additional branch mints to produce coins were built as the country expanded and grew economically. Branch mints adding to coinage used a "mintmark" to indicated their production.

Mint State Grade: When first minted a coin is Mint State grade. No wear to the surface defines the grade. Luster, the fine texture imparted during the minting process covers the coin. Luster, what gives the surface the shine is a delicate texture and high points are examined to confirm this texture remains. It is noted, toning does not indicate wear. Toning lays on top of luster of a mint state grade coin and the original texture is seen underneath when looking through the luster.

Extremely Fine Grade: Light wear involving only the highest points of the design is a coin in Extremely Fine grade. Small details in high relief areas are worn and merging slightly with surrounding design elements. Each series and design have unique areas to judge for the presence of remaining design defining the grade.

Fine Grade: Moderate wear is easily visible covering the surface of a coin in Fine grade. Smaller details on high spots are missing. Light wear is beginning to smooth deeper reliefs of design creating large flat areas. Flat areas, covering parts of the design but disconnected from each other helps define the grade. Dates and legends are clear and readable.

Good Grade: Overall, heavy wear has reduced the design to smooth areas. Portraits and major design areas are in outline with few inner details, however, they remain clear and not merged with the field. Dates and legends are often beginning to fade towards the rim. Tops of lettering is weak on many coins in Good grade.

How to Videos: | Grading Old Coins

Grading the condition of coins using videos, images and descriptions.

๐Ÿ”ŽRefer to Step 1 Above: Image and text links lead to series pages of in-depth coverage. Each series page covers grading in detail. Close-up images and descriptions of grades are used to judge condition. Additional video helps to identify many subtle points to grading coins.

Step 4: | Special Qualities Enhancing Coin Values

Number one special quality to any coin is; original, natural surfaces remain. All coins age and develop surface characteristics unique to each metal alloy.

Over time, copper begins to deepen the original reds and golden colors on mint state coins. Wear on copper, tones different shades than surrounding protected areas. Silver develops a variety of colors, blues, violets with reddish tints, shades of silver greys on circulated pieces. Gold coins alloyed with copper deepen in color in subtle ways. Slight shading among design elements on gold coins enhance the overall eye appeal.

An eye appealing coin, with natural undisturbed surfaces draws the attention of collectors. It is appreciated, no matter the condition. Aesthetics unique to each coin is its special quality.

This helps answer an often-asked question: Should I clean my old coins?

When compared side by side, original coins are clearly higher in eye appeal. Subtle tones of brown on the Indian cent contrasted to the light and dark of the cleaned cent. A warm toning is preferred over the washed-out look of cleaned silver.

If cleaning a coin is an attempt to improve its appearance, it is not necessary. Each collector develops their own preference of appeal of coins.

Adhering to, searching, and finding that pleasing coin is the value in collecting. Cleaning does not add to a coin, it eliminates possible collectors.
