Wow...this was a tough one for me. However, as best as I can tell, after Dr. Sheldon developed his grading system for large cents, Abe Kosoff was the first to use his system for grading in his mail order catalog "Coin Gallery".... At least that is what the connecting of dots leads me to believe. I will be interested to see if I am right.
