COIN GRADES CGS TO MS
« on: July 30, 2013, 02:28:49 PM »
Hi all, I thought this table may be of interest especially to the folks from Britain (of which I am one)  :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile:

This is a conversion table to compare grades between the British system C.G.S. (Coin Grading Service) and the Sheldon Scale  M.S. as widely used elsewhere.

I gleaned this information from my regular on line coin dealer, and thought it would be good to share the info to help promote the CGS brand in the U.K. I am reluctant to send my coins abroad to have them graded partly because of the cost/risk/customs etc  but now that I am able to compare these 2 systems for coin grading I think that I will get my collection graded at CGS in the U.K.  I only went down to MS60 grade in the list below, as lower grades for modern coins imo are not worth having.

(ps I have NO CONNECTION WITH CGS )
