Condition Mint State 70 (MS70)
 
Coins are graded on a 70-point scale with “70” being absolute perfection. In 1948, Dr. William Sheldon, a renowned numismatist, developed the Sheldon Scale, assigning number grades from "1" through "70" to coins. The basis of Sheldon’s theory was that a "70" would be worth 70 times as much as a "1."
 
The numerical grades MS60 through MS70, are used to denote business strike coins that never have been in circulation. A Mint State coin can range from one that is poorly struck with many marks and hairlines (MS60), to a flawless, fully struck, lustrous example with superb eye appeal (MS70).
 
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) Certified label

A coin collector buys both the coin and the slab. In addition to buying the certification service’s reputation and a numeric grade, the coin buyer purchases the holder as a physical object. NGC special labels enhance and differentiate your coin from others in the same grade, serving a function beyond recording the coin’s authenticity and condition. The presentation and collectible value of these coins is enhanced by being identified as coveted First Day of Issue (FDI) coins, as City Releases, coins released through the United States Mint at their facilities in Washington DC, Denver and Philadelphia, and as Signature Series coins. A Signature coin, is a coin that bears the original signature of a noteworthy person connected with the coin. These coins have been signed by The Honorable Michael Castle, who was a two-term Governor of Delaware and near twenty-year member of the US House of Representatives and is directly responsible for some of the most important and popular modern US coins. Michael Castle is a direct descendant of Benjamin Franklin.
