I recently submitted a lot of 6 coins for crossover.

Of the 6, three did not cross. I am attaching the pictures of the coins that did not cross and asking opinions as to what you think the grades are or should be andwhy they did not cross.

 

Thanks!

I like the look of all three. They all look "un-messed-with".

I am going to venture a guess that you tried to cross all three at 67, and NGC said no.

I requested the 46 to be crossover at MS67 FT from same grade FT. Holder also has a QA sticker on it. Coin was BB due to being cleaned.

The 51-D they would not cross from MS67. The 51-S they would not cross at MS66.

 

Honestly, I cannot understand their opinion on any of the three. I thought the 51-S had a chance at a 67 even!

The diffused lighting, used to take these images, makes them impossible to use to determine grade.

In terms of speculation:

It's possible the 1946 may have a wheel mark of a patch of wiping lines somewhere on the coin. That's all it takes to get "Improperly Cleaned." The whole coin doesn't have to be cleaned. I can see several large bag marks on the reverse of the 51-D, and the dark rims on the obverse could hurt it. The 51-S doesn't have any visible flaws.
