The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded each medal in this set Proof 70. To receive that grade, a piece must appear perfect as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also credited the medals for having particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields by certifying them Ultra Cameo. Finally, the grading company certified them First Day of Issue, a designation that indicates that they were submitted for grading through an exclusive process.
