In the following pictures, there are two 1927 Florins shown – two pictures of each coin; a digital pic and scan of each coin (A and B)

Coin A has been graded by NGC and Coin B by PCGS.

The following two pictures are of the NGC coin (Coin A)

The following two pictures are of the PCGS coin (Coin B)

Please guess what the numerical grades of the two coins are (they are NOT “details” coins).

NGC = AU50

PCGS = XF40

 

The NGC coin looks suspect to me. The 7 and 1 is not consistent with normal struck 1927 florins

 

 

Cheers

NGC - XF45 - 7 seems to be bigger than normal

PCGS - VF35

Here is the answer ...

I must say, that besides the poor grading standard in this instance by PCGS – I must go with the grades guessed by Cold Sea - the comments about the strange date “7” on the NGC coin calls for further research. I did not even spot it at all – thank you Anthony and Xsiandreas.

 

Anyone have the time to dig into this?

Thanks for all the comments.

Pierre

There is nothing suspect to this Strange 7 observed here. It is merely one of the many varieties often seen in early KgV coins.

 

Just a bit of research on BoB on some current listings will result in at least three different date varieties on this year and same denomination.

 

Cheers to al.
