Montmercure:
Hello everyone,
I (again) need your knowledge.
I spotted a coin recently sold (Vespasian. AD 69-79. Æ Dupondius), this piece is encapsulated via NGC which indicated on its certificate: "edge cuts" ... what does this expression mean? ???

Thank you in advance for your knowledge

Montmercure:
I joint the copy of the certificat box, if it can help  :(

dwarf:
You have to look at the rim (edge) of the coin to see the cuts in person.
Which you can't, as the the coin is encapsuled.
Another reason for not buying coins in coffins.

Regards
Klaus

Montmercure:
Thanks for this interesting point of view .... that I share. ;D

Aren't certification houses required to keep photo proof of the "flaws" they advertise and which become invisible due to encapsulation?

Joe Sermarini:
The only thing they are required to do is what they impose upon themselves, there really are no applicable rules or laws. 

I think I see a very very tiny cut on the edge below the upper left prong.
