|Only DLRC offers our own rating system for quick reference of the amount of toning & eye appeal of our coins.
The degree of Toning is designated by a number between 1-10. A '1' in color represents a pure-white coin. No toning; while a theoretical '10' would be pure-black (we've never given out a 10). Most coins designated '2' will please collectors of 'white' coins.
A coin's Eye Appeal is denoted by a series of 1-5 stars. The highest rating is 5-stars (*****). A single-star has the lowest possible eye appeal; is an average, decent coin; is above-average - very nice for the grade. (5-stars) is reserved for coins with exceptional eye appeal.
