I only graded #9 and kept it to myself. I did nail it, including the PL designation. :)

Great job coinman, you rule ! I would like to buy all the MS 63 PL Morgans I could find that look like that 78-S.

Looks like I was pretty consistently a point lower than PCGS (except the Morgan... that one threw me).

 

I am ok being a point lower. Or rather, I'll blame it on gradeflation and say PCGS was a point high on many of those ;)

We have a few grading contests a year on the comic side. They generally have several rounds, and take a few weeks. People also donate prizes. Usually a tech savvy person helps with cool charts to keep score. Points are awarded. bullseye 5 points one grade off 3 points 2 grades off 1 point. More than that -1.

 

The March Madness contest is set up differently. They are tons of fun and real popular. I could see this being a fun, annual event in the coin forum one day.

Danye, or someone else with an enterprising spirit - I think that Comicdonna's idea is a really good one. We were wondering what could be done to instill a bit of life around here.... I really like this idea.

Here's round 10 results for one of the contests, so you can check out the charts.

A separate thread was started prior to the results thread. You PM all of your guesses. Also, there's no discussing the books to be graded until after the round closes.

This takes place in the hey buddy can you spare a grade forum. The March Madness contest is set up totally different. You have to beat 1 opponent in each round. Say you have 128 players in the first round. The second round, there's 64 players. The final round has just 2 people with a winner in the end.

I think it would be considerably simpler to run the contest on the coin side, since there is probably about 10% of the participants here.

Exactly. I was just posting some samples. Besides, a coin grading contest on the comic side would probably wake Arch from hibernation.

In a little while I'll probably do another.

I hope it brings more people to the forum.

Maybe next time.
