Grading ancient coins is a very subjective field since they are hand made and no two are exactly alike. It's kind of like trying to grade oil paintings...how do you fairly compare them? It's not hard to find strong disagreements over what grade a particular coin deserves. As far as "official" is concerned...I don't think you're likely to find any grading service that EVERYONE accepts as authoritative.
