They came out a while ago and said that they will take overall eye appeal into consideration when grading a card, meaning, they reserve the right to break their own rules.

They should be consistent, but I agree that small amounts of paper loss on an otherwise beautiful card should never be graded a 1 or 2 or whatever they usually grade out at.

They miss the paper loss because they aren't careful enough.
As for the trimming on the green Cobby, I think it is just off centered top to bottom as the bottom makes up for the top. Kind of like this one Jay. Had I not checked with you first I too could have thought this N172 was trimmed. I was leaning in the direction that it wasn't trimmed before I reached out to you though. I got it for a song too... Fortunately the board member and ebayer (hey Chris) was selling the holder and not the card. The card would have cost more in the correct holder.....and I don't even want to hear "min size" as that is a stupid comment on N172s, imo....

The Goldin catalog very honesty disclosed the issue and make no attempt to hide the issue. I give them props for that. The right thing to do and probably not always done so unambiguously.
