Hello, what is NGC's philosophy on counter stamped coins such as the Meiji 1 Yen below? Would the counter stamp alone qualify it as details or damaged? Or would it receive a sub category similar to Trade Dollar Chop Marks?

Dear Ewomack,

Thank you.  We grade these numerically.  No counterstamp grade.

Thank you,

Lisa

Hello,

Sorry, I'll try to be clearer. Looking at the coin as a whole, are counter stamps considered damage since they were not a part of the original coin? Would a coin like the one above receive a details or damaged grade overall because it's counter stamped?

Thank you!
