GRADING STANDARDS:

NC = NEW CONDITION, never a pocket piece.

LN = LIKE NEW, has the luster of "NC" but with very minor abrasions and/or scratches.

LC = LIGHTLY CIRCULATED, has low luster, even wear, minor rim dings, no damage.

AC = AVERAGE CIRCULATED, no luster, coin and encasement may be dull or slightly off colored, even wear, several abrasions, scratches and rim dings. 

HC = HEAVILY CIRCULATED, encasement and coin exhibits heavy wear with all features and lettering readable without use of a glass.

PR = POOR, piece showing extreme wear with missing features, and/or missing lettering, may have severe encasement damage and/or major coin corrosion, or bent.

(ANY PIECE WITH MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE ENCASEMENT, MASSIVE CORROSION ON THE COIN OR EVIDENCE OF HAVING BEEN BENT, WILL BE GRADED "POOR" NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER CONDITION OF THE PIECE. UNCIRCULATED IS NEVER AN ACCEPTABLE GRADING TERM.)

CHECK LISTS STANDARDS:


The following check list example will be used for all ECI State Lists posted on the website. The numbering system is as follows: The State - City/Town - Assigned ECI number. The towns are listed in alphabetical order with each town's catalog number beginning with 001.  A "?" indicates that the information offered is in question. A "???" indicates that information is lacking in that particular category or area. (    ) indicates an identified maverick.  The letters "Ty. or Var." will be used to indicate a variety of a same date piece. "aka" means 'also known as'. "sd" for small date (ex- 1960D sd), and "ld" for large date if required. When a row of periods: EX: ... , is encountered on a 'Subject" line - it indicates additional text is on the piece that is not being used in the description.

This listing method is easy to up-date when new additions are added. Extensive State Catalogs will by necessity have more definitive information available than this simple, easy to use check list.

NOTE: When there are towns with the same first three letters in the name it will become necessary to include the 4th letter of the town's name as part of the 'ECI Number'. In instances where the 4th letter may also be the same as another town then a 5th letter will added and so on.
