Mint State 63 Green Label

The RARCOA Green Label is used with coins that have gone through a two step review process. Coins are first identified by third party experts at Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA) along a set of strict guidelines for elements like strike, luster, toning, and eye-appeal. These selected coins are then submitted to NGC for certification and encapsulation with the Green Label. This piece earned the Mint State 63 grade. Mint State 63 coins are fully uncirculated examples of a given issue. These coins have all of the design details present with absolutely no evidence of wear. There will be scattered contact marks around the surfaces of the coin. These coins will have mint luster and good eye appeal.
