Writing to get thoughts on if this card would be deemed miscut by a grading service? Appreciate your comments.

by miscut...do you mean trimmed?

Looks like a diamond cut to me.

No not trimmed, top left margin seems a little taller than the right top margin.

Sean, I would agree with the Diamond Cut feedback. Thanks.

That top looks possibly trimmed. See the back view...

That slight of a diamond cut wouldn't get an MC qualifier. However, as others have pointed out, it would get an A if it is trimmed.

Thanks to all so far!

There are two different miscuts to PSA:
1) The card isn't cut into a true rectangle from the factory. That describes this card, and PSA could return it in your Cardsaver and not charge you the grading fee.
2) The card has part of another card on it. This would get you the (MC) qualifier, and dock you two grades in the set registry.

I have had a bunch of T121 Sweet Caporal World War I scenes returned ungraded by PSA as factory miscuts.

Here is an example:
PSA would likely return this ungraded as miscut.

Since they don't charge you, that doesn't preclude you from sending it in multiple times to try and get a number grade.

It does not appear to be a diamond cut to me as the angle at the top edge of the card does not match the angle of the lower edge. I'd say its been trimmed as the upper edge of the card appears to have a bit of a dip in it rather than being a straight cut diamond or not.
