Three designations to the same coin?

 

I was looking at my 2014 S High Relief Kennedy and noticed the same coin is seemingly listed three ways. It is in the census at MS EH and MS EHP and also as MS EHD. Can anyone explain the difference to me?

The technical descriptions are:

 

EH = "Ehhh, might be OK but who knows?"

EHP = "Ehhh, probably OK but we don't know?"

EHD = "Ehhh, definitely OK, but wha' do you t'ink. You like?"

 

But remember - t'ings is no awayz wha' dey seems!

They mean:

 

EH = Enhanced High Relief

EHP = Enhanced High Relief Prooflike (PL)

EHD = Enhanced High Relief Deep-prooflike (DPL)

 

Every coin has the potential to be designated as PL or DPL.

"Every coin has the potential to be designated as PL or DPL"

 

It can also be a designated driver....or is it part of the new "No Coin Left Behind" act?

 

These special descriptions seem to be homing in on the individually slabbed errors that one frustrated collector was trying to promote a few weeks ago....is there an end?

 

.....just a thought, not a sermon.

You guys better care and you better put a set together that is complete with one of each. Thats what modern coin collecting is.

How much will NGC charge me to get MHB(might have been)DPL on a classic coin?
