Hi

If it is circulated coin then rate is quite high...UNC condition also bit high.

You can get 75 to 82 (8 coins)coins on ebay between Rs70 to 150.

(Just for comparison)..if you want to buy then buy from good dealer ,you should get at cheaper rates.

1 coin for rs 100 is extremely high unless its UNC,AU or BU.. circulated coin usually costs Rs. 10-20 depending on dealer...and these coins are not so rear....

AU is about UNC and BU is brilliant UNC. UNC means its uncirculated coin...

More details....it may vary..but border definition remain same.

The coin which is mentioned in e bay is circulated one as it is written used Item.

P-1) Poor - Barely identifiable; must have date and mintmark, otherwise pretty thrashed.

(FR-2) Fair - Worn almost smooth but lacking the damage Poor coins have.

(G-4) Good - Heavily worn such that inscriptions merge into the rims in places; details are mostly gone.

(VG-8) Very Good - Very worn, but all major design elements are clear, if faint. Little if any central detail.

(F-12) Fine - Very worn, but wear is even and overall design elements stand out boldly. Almost fully-separated rims.

(VF-20) Very Fine - Moderately worn, with some finer details remaining. All letters of LIBERTY, (if present,) should be readable. Full, clean rims.

(EF-40) Extremely Fine - Lightly worn; all devices are clear, major devices bold.

(AU-50) About Uncirculated - Slight traces of wear on high points; may have contact marks and little eye appeal.

(AU-58) Very Choice About Uncirculated - - Slightest hints of wear marks, no major contact marks, almost full luster, and positive eye appeal.

(MS-60) Mint State Basal - Strictly uncirculated but that's all; ugly coin with no luster, obvious contact marks, etc.

(MS-63) Mint State Acceptable - Uncirculated, but with contact marks and nicks, slightly impaired luster, overall basically appealing appearance. Strike is average to weak.

(MS-65) Mint State Choice - Uncirculated with strong luster, very few contact marks, excellent eye appeal. Strike is above average.

(MS-68) Mint State Premium Quality - Uncirculated with perfect luster, no visible contact marks to the naked eye, exceptional eye appeal. Strike is sharp and attractive.

(MS-69) Mint State All-But-Perfect - Uncirculated with perfect luster, sharp, attractive strike, and very exceptional eye appeal. A perfect coin except for microscopic flaws (under 8x magnification) in planchet, strike, or contact marks.

(MS-70) Mint State Perfect - The perfect coin. There are no microscopic flaws visible to 8x, the strike is sharp, perfectly-centered, and on a flawless planchet. Bright, full, original luster and outstanding eye appeal.

also check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coin_grading

Coin grading has evolved over the years to a system of finer and finer grade distinctions. Originally, there were only two grades, new and used.

This evolved for a time to the letter grading system beginning with the lowest grade – Basal State (also Poor (PO)), then continuing Fair (Fr), About or Almost Good (AG), Good (G), Very Good (VG), Fine (F), Very Fine (VF), Extra Fine (EF or XF), Almost or About Uncirculated (AU), Uncirculated (Unc) and up to Brilliant Uncirculated (BU). Gem Uncirculated was roughly equivalent in usage to BU at that time.

http://www.taxfreegold.co.uk/coingrades.html

Abbr. Grade Description

FDC Fleur-de-Coin Absolutely flawless, without any wear scratches or fingerprints.

Unc. Uncirculated In new condition as issued by the mint, but not necessarily perfect

B.U. Brilliant Uncirculated As uncirculated, and bright. Sometimes used as type description meaning "non=proof" or superior normal.

EF Extremely Fine Slight surface marks or slight wear visible on close inspection.

VF Very Fine Some wear on the raised surfaces, but still retaining much detail.

F Fine Considerable wear on the raised surfaces, all main features still sharp.

fr Fair Very worn, but all inscriptions and main features distinguishable.

poor Poor or Worn Very worn, some features or lettering worn away.

thanku Vivek for such huge details about the grading of coins.

 

As you told 1975 coins is not so rare it means i should not go for it. and my second query is regarding rs 10 coin year 2005 n rs 2 airforce coin. both are available near about Rs350+rs 250. don't you think the price is too high.

 

please give your valuable suggestions

thanks
