On some coin certificates i.e. ICCS, there are notes of the type "obverse # 3" or just  "obverse 2". I have been trying to figure out what it means but no success so far.
In particular I have seen these on certificates for Canadian 10 cents dated before 1900 (queen Victoria rule).
Any suggestions?


For reliable information go here. The numbers the third party grader uses may have been plucked from a popular catalogue, perhaps Charlton.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Thank you for the valuable info. I actually have a Charlton 2020 guide but found no hint.
Strange that an evaluator should use a grading system that is not widely recognized.
Will keep looking
