Great app

Very handy app for myself as I metal detect daily I find large amounts of silver coins wheat pennies Indian heads buffalo etc etc now and then a few gold ;) so it's grate to be able to hit this app and find what I'm looking for in no time at all,, please don't change it it's fine as it is lol everything you need in this one app.. would be awesome to upload a photo and then grade it for you and also price it now that would be something special.. sent a screen shot of this app to over 60 metal detecting friends and a ton of people I know who just collect.. great job and very useful

Awesome App

This app is great and is very handy when trying to get a general idea of what a coin grades at. Images are clear and provided is all grade level for all modern coins and most older ones. The only suggestions I would give is have an option to see other examples of coins that fall into a specific grade (versus just one) and a quick link to the price guide app for a coin you are grading.

Pretty Good

There is just one problem, it is minor so I'm still giving 5 stars -- under "Cents" for Lincoln Cents it says 1909 to Date, but they are saying that for Wheat Cents, Lincoln Memorial Cents, and Shield Cents, like they are all the same coin. Please make 3 different sections for that, if possible.
