Following on from my recent posts dealing with the two fundamentally different grading systems (viz., Canadian and American), I have attached below two images that clearly illustrate the significant differences between the two grading systems for the specific numerical grade of VF-25.

There seems to be very little common ground between the two distinct grading systems and I don't think things are likely to change any time soon, at least while Canadian dealers seem to be reluctant to embrace the Canadian third-party grading companies, preferring instead to favour the American companies PMG and PCGS.

Thank you you for showing us this.  It is instantly obvious the BCS is a much nicer note than the PMG.  Quite startling actually..
