Obscure Finds Numismatic Coin Collection
is a hobby...
Type Set Coin Collections are where pocket change and slabbed coins unite!
This website is a great example of just that type of collection.

Obscure Finds is a collection of quirky items I have collected over the years. This site is one of those collections. If you enjoy this website like us on facebook or Google+.
If you like this website/application it was hand developed by Mindlock Innovations.

Terms that need to be defined for future reference throughout this website:
- Numismatic Coin Collection Database (NCCD)
- Obscure Finds Coin Collection (OFCC)

All coins and coin images on this site are or at one time were owned by OFCC.
OFCC collects, researches, and photographs every coin displayed on this site.
Coin Data is compiled/referenced from around the web. Linked references within.

The simple answer is the OFCC DOES NOT GRADE COINS.
Due to the subjective nature and overall attitude towards coin grading standards,
OFCC has opted to classify all the numismatic items in this coin collection catalog as one of the following:

- UNCIRCULATED (Only given as described below)
- Trusted 3rd party Grade (e.g. PCGS, NGC) (As described below)

Some basic OFCC clarification guidelines are listed below:

Slabbed Coins From (NGC, PCGS) :
Coins Slabbed by PCGS or NGC are completely trusted minus counterfeited attempts.

Slabbed Coins From (ANACS, ICG) :
Coins Slabbed by ANACS or ICG are trusted minus counterfeited attempts but are generally less desirable to most collectors.

Slabbed Coins From (ANY ONE ELSE) :
Coins Slabbed by ANY ONE ELSE are not trusted fully and are judged on a case by case basis. In the occurrence that OFCC disagrees with the grade on a slabbed coin we note it and display the grade as UNGRADED in our database.

Government Mint/Bank Issued Coins:
Sets, rolls, or individual coins issued by the US Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, Royal Australian Mint, or Perth Mint are trusted after a simple spot check and marked in our database as UNCIRCULATED.
Sets, rolls, or individual coins issued by other banks or mints are judged on a case by case basis, including non-government coin manufacturers such as the American Mint.

Cardboard flip, mylar flips or loose coin capsules:
Previous owners grading marks on these types of coin holders are marked as UNGRADED in our database.
NOTE: If OFCC has personally visited the brick and mortar coin shop as well as done business with them, and it was a great experience on top of good prices and fair grades, OFFC will reflect the grade given by that verified business and reflect the contact information for that specific coin purchased by OFCC from the hands of that verified business.

Loose coins, pocket change and other shrapnel remains:
OFCC will only show a grade of UNGRADED!
