Supply and demand exert the basic pressure on prices. However, the condition of the coin, especially that of extremely rare ones, affects its value as well. Coin collectors determine the condition of the coin through a grading scale of 1 – 70. Mint condition coins have a grade of 65 – 70, the most desirable grade a coin could have. Elements affecting the grade of the coin includes the strike of the coin, the appeal of the coin, coloration, luster, and damages like dents, scratches, carbon spots, signs of improper cleaning, and corrosion.
