Mkay, so here's the deal, I but together a set of copper/silver draped bust coins, they all vary in grades and 2 are slabbed, (another was but I broke it out) and the others are loose. The pictures are mainly crap, which is my digital camera fault lol. But anyway, lets see how they grade by you guys.

I warn you, Bust types are not a good area for me.

 

Dollar - F15

Half Dollar - VG8

Quarter- *shrugs* F12. Looks a bit better than the dime.

Dime- G6/VG8

Half Dime-G4

Cent- VF35

Half Cent- Hard to see, details look decent, F12

I'm tempted to go XF40 on the Cent. It looks very good. It's always hard to grade from a picture. It's a really nice cent.

XF on the half cent. Strong facial features.It's hard to see scratches and such with the lighting, angle, and diffusion of the picture.

If you're curious what I grade them check my omnicoin. Burks you're pretty close on everything except the half-cent and the half-dime, those are both slabbed. Check my omnicoin stuff :lol:

 

Everyone else, look at it only after you took a guess, it's only fair! :ninja:

Ok, I looked at your omnicoin site for the "answer" and I think you might be selling that bust half short.  Here is a link to my 1807 that gades VF-25: 1807 Draped Bust  Of course it might be the photos you used too.

 

Your half is in better shape than mine, the one I have lacks most major hair detail, so I don't think it should really go anywhere above vg-8. I also take into account it's stike. I think mine had a good strike, and the lack of detail came from wear. If you look at my draped half-dime you can see what I mean, the half-dime has a weakly struck obverse, and little wear on it. Considering what you have in your collection, I'm sure you could figure that out though. Early coinage always seems to be a challenge to grade, especially weakly struck examples. What I have on my omnicoin seems to cover the norms, but I leave it to major companies (PCGS/Anacs for me) to grade the weakly struck ones.

Strike has a lot to do with it.  It's funny, the photos you posted here make the coin look a lot more detailed than the photos on omnicoin.  Perhaps I was making too much of a mental adjustment to account for the photos!

 

Good possibility. The photos are sharper than the scans are, I use my junky scanner for omnicoins. I am getting a USB microscope though, that way I can take extremely detailed shots of a coin and replace my old omnicoin ones. I would say to be fair, split the difference of the two photos and you have a good estimate right now.
