Been reading a few letters to the editor about coin grading where some people think that 75% of the weight of the grade should be based on the obverse and 25% on the reverse.  In other words, if a coin is MS66 on the obverse, but maybe ms64 on the reverse, it still gets a MS65+ as an example.  But what if the coin is MS66 on the obverse and only MS61 on the reverse for some reason, should it still get an MS64 or some type of grade?  For some coins a MS64 is quite a valuable coin.  I personally would not want that coin.  If I buy a MS64, I want MS64 all around.

While I can see the argument,  I believe both sides have to be considered.
