I just got a report on a diamond dated sept 26, 2006 form AGS, but the format looks to be the old format, is it legit?

It says

Cut Grade: AGS Ideal 0

Polish: Ideal
Symmetry: Ideal
Proportions: Ideal



I thought the new system scores with a 0-10, is this one legit?

AGS report number is 0007739301

thanks

yeah, it's old format (no light performance.) doesn't necessarily mean it's fake.

that''s right, the report was dated sept of 06, can they still issue the old report in late 06?

yes; it was supposed to give manufacturers time to adjust to the new system. the old one is supposed to be phased out some time. I'd be suspicious of any new reports with old formats; make sure to get an Ideal Scope picture.

yes. I'm not suspicious about the authenticity, but about the performance of the stone.

as julie said, they do still issue old reports... even in ''06. likely the diamond will not get the top grade under the new report so the ''old'' report was issued. it makes the diamond ''look'' better on paper.
