A Question Surface Grading
1 1

1 post in this topic

I read that CSG is tough on surfaces, and that a failure to properly account for surface issues in pre-grading accounts for many disappointing grades.  Also, these surface issues are often only detected under 10x or what have you.   Obviously that has my attention.   Centering is cut and dried, but with surface, there seems to be some art involved.

So - I am asking for your opinion of this surface issue, if it is an issue.  Card has strong eye appeal, left-right centering needs a look, while back centering, edges, corners are sharp.  Surface clean.   Then I looked under magnification and saw this (see attached). 

Is this is a surface issue and what effect might it have on the grade?  Not visible to the naked eye, only under magnification.
