Default Help a brother out. SGC term

As I'm arbitrage trolling on eBay I see the SGC grading term FR & PR. I went to the SGC website but that's a shitshow of luddite website interface and couldn't find an answer. Can someone enlighten a working class collector on what those terms mean. I'm sure I'll have an Edison bulb moment as soon as someone responds.
Thanks

PR = Poor = 1

Jesus wept, thank you, now I can sleep at night. Im thinking French Revolution and Post Reconstruction, can't they just reduce their font size and add two letters for normal folk?

Questions that will keep an obsessive compulsive up at night, literally. On the old slabs they would spell it out for some grades. To their credit, at least they have moved towards a more consistent label now. Here's one, what's the difference from a PR-FR 1 and a PR 1? Oh my

And hexagons! I'd of liked to be in on the market research Roundtable meeting where there was a majority of people who decided the use of hexagons was a good idea...

PSA PR-FR labels predate their going to half grades, so both Poor and Fair were PSA 1s at the time. I believe that if you send in a PR-FR for reholdering, it is supposed to automatically get a Fair 1.5 now.

During the first couple of years, PSA had a slightly different scale where VG was a 4. Pretty rare to find those.

I like to go to the watering hole on the left side of the street so I can get a liberal pour. LOL

Yes but I am always worried they will give some of my drink to the guy at the other end of the bar who had none.
