Will, you are right, typically the higher the grade the more hidden jeweled surfaces you find. On Parkers it starts on "C" grades and goes up and increases coverage. It has been several years sense I was in a crown or Monogram but my OLD memory says it was covering most of the components. I was told it's original purpose was it improved the ability to hold oil but decoration must have been important. bill
