Grading Contest Sponsored by Steve Bromfield.
"THe coming Sunday Coin Show at Veteran's Park, Sunrise Blvd.we will offer all comers one free entry into
the coin grading contest.
Repeat; there is one free entry per person attending the coin show.
I will bring six NGC graded coins. Most likely Morgan Dollars because everyone knows how to grade
them. The actual grade on the coin will be covered up. The coins will be clearly visible from both sides.
Anyone who wishes, can pick up a grading sheet (one per customer) and look at the coins, mark down
the grade he/she sees for each coin and submit it to me for scoring.
The grading system will go by The Grading Standard points. If the actual grade on the coins is a MS 60
and someone graded it AU 55, they would have been off by two grading points (AU55 to AU 58) and (AU58 to MS60). The score that would be assigned them is 2. Getting the grade on the nose would score a zero.
Given this, then one can see that the aim of the game is to get as few points as possible, just like golf.
The prizes awarded are: First place will be awarded a 2000 SIlver Eagle.
In case of a tie, there will be a run-off grade test of two more coins.
The Grand Prize if someone scores a perfect Zero score is a mint state silver dollar in a holder.
The time of the event; it will run ALL MORNING and the answers will be opened and graded beginning
at 1PM. THe winner or winners will be announced at 1:30 PM.
Please join the fun and enter the contest. "
