In my opinion the whole 9.8, 9.9, 10 is a big scheme to keep people coming back like a lottery. Exactly like a lottery. People are attracted to the chance to "win". Winning being that 1 - 2% of getting a 9.9 or 10 vs 9.8.

The difference in the grades is if President Grant or Mr. Franklin make an appearance in the book... if you catch my drift.


Next time I'm throwing in a couple Jefferson's

I’ve never had the urge to send a 9.8 back in to try for a higher grade.

But I have two big casinos in my back yard but never play slots or tables, and never play the lottery either. So maybe I’m the exception.

I couldn't have said it any better. Fake grades invented by TPGers to entice submissions.

You hit the nail on the head. I don’t mind CBCS trying to make money but I do wish they’d publish the differences in grades to at least appear like they don’t make up reasons for 9.8’s 9.9s & 10’s

The Grading issue IS NOT unique to just CBCS. It is a standard ploy used by all grading companies, weather it be Comic books, Sports cards or Coins.
