    eept their opinions, as it either agrees, or disagrees with our own view of an individual pieee. However, Tom agrees with you that there is serious divergenee of opinion when it comes to coins with “problems”. ..i.e. corrosion, pitting, porosity, etc. What some see as a serious issue, others see as nothing more than a mild detraction from a slightly higher grade. Third: Should a serious effort at eac grading be undertaken? ABSOLUTELY! EAC has some incredible dealers/collectors and professional experts in copper in this organization. Should EAC as a recognized organization in early copper select a group of these people to establish firm EAC grading standards? Yes. For those collectors that do not wish to specialize in early copper, normal grading standards are probably just fine. For those tha

Silver dollars, buffalo nickels, Lincoln cents, great; large cents not so great. “What about so-called eac grading? Well, EAC does not grade coins— they used to have a committee that issued certificates, long ago. A number of individuals grade coins, and use so-called EAC standards. There are no EAC standards— they use the same standards as anyone else— but deduct points, grade, money, if you will, for defects.

    n’t believe how quickly the convention came and went this year! It was great to see everybody, but he felt like he needed a full week this year instead of just a few days. But it was a blast and he is ready for next year’s convention! HEAVEN HELP US! THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT GRADING AGAIN. Dennis Fuoss commented that he recently finished perusal of the Heritage auction catalogue for their May Long Beach auction. He noticed that Heritage assigns two grades to all the early copper coins in their signature sales - a 3rd-party grading service grade (a/k/a commercial grade) and an EAC grade. They even use this terminology (e.g., “EAC20”). Now, here is his question: should the members of EAC be OK with this practice? Since there is no universal agreement on an EAC grading standard, and no published E

Obviously, someone who lives in Atlanta has low odds of wrecking his car in Seattle, because he’s almost never there. In the same way, I suspect that, had we had held 10 of the last 15 eac conventions in Seattle, we would have many members there and the discussion would be about the presumably expendable minority of members who were unfortunate enough to live so far from EAC’s real hub, in Seattle.

Imagine trying to sell that slab and grade if it had to have a label that said “accurate to within 10 points - and no guarantee of that.” That print would have to be small indeed! James suggests a barrier that may be higher: overcoming history. That the U.S. numismatic community uses the Sheldon 70 point system and that auction houses attempt to use eac grading demonstrates the influence of EAC better than any PR team could dream. Sheldon’s initial theories have fallen away but his systematic outline remains. And through its power as a society of learning and as a player in this niche market, EAC is recognized and acknowledged in the marketplace: EAC expertise is the expertise. As a member of the society, and as someone still learning at the fee
