Coins in an About Uncirculated condition (also called Almost Uncirculated) (AU) have a really light wear and at least half of the Mint luster. Numbers from 50 to 58 are attached to them. We can also use the term Choice About Uncirculated (AU too) for the coins graded 55, that have some evidence of friction on the highest points of the reliefs and most of the Mint luster.

Coins in an Uncirculated condition (also called Mint State) (Unc, or MS) have no trace of wear. There can be bagmarks, surface can be spotted. There can also be a lack of Mint luster on it. Numbers from 60 to 70 are attached to them. We can also use the terms Choice Uncirculated* and Select Uncirculated (Unc, or MS too) for the coins graded 63, that only have some blemishes.

*Choice Uncirculated can also be used for coins graded 64.
