Grading Standards

We use the same guidelines for grading as those listed in The Official RED BOOK, A Guide Book of United States Coins, by R.S. Yeoman. Below is a stock photo of what we consider is an example that represents this national grading standard for Lincoln Wheat Cents.

G - Good - Date worn but apparent. Lines in wheat heads missing. Full rims.
