The term PQ stands for premium quality which would seem to belie the whole concept of a standardized grading system. It’s a confusing term because it makes it seem that a coin described this manner is really a higher grade than it is and therefore more valuable. It is just marketing hype. A coin graded MS66 is already premium quality by definition. MS66PQ? I don’t think so!
