    I'm not crazy about it. It looks to be UNC, but it also looks like there was dip residue on it when it was holdered.

    This is a pretty common date/mm, and not difficult to find with a full head as well.

    A "C" coin. It does appear to have dip residue.

    I like a better strike - with all the rivets on the shield showing. Full head isn't a requirement for my taste - but I do like it close.

    Like the series. I always thought it had a “Maxfield Parrish” look on the obverse.

    How can you tell without knowing the grade?

    Looks dipped to me, in my humble opinion. Better living through chemistry has failed us again. Pass.

    Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    Textbook ms64, not a FH.......easy coin to grade. (I'm starting off the New Year over confident).

    Not FH. Dipped. Likely MS.

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." --Teddy Roosevelt, April 23, 1910.

    By MY standards (and opinion), slabbed coins with dip residue or fingerprints are viewed negatively. To remove the dip residue it would be necessary to crack out the coin, treat it to remove the dip residue and then pay to have it regraded. It is very possible the coin will look washed out once the dip residue has been removed. Why take the chance with any of this? It is best to pass up coins like this because they make someone else's problem your problem.

    I got a line hook in on a 1918/7-S in FH... never graded before, never auctioned, never reported. Should know more late next week.> @jmlanzaf said:

    Oh, It is an old green holder PCGS MS65. I am going to stop taking bad cell phone pictures soon. My Christmas present... a new Nikon... should arrive tomorrow. That should help out a bit but here is another pic of what others have said is a blotchy area (very faint, yes, on the coin surface but the camera must have picked that up at the right angle because it is very faint to a human viewer):

    But A, B, C is relative to the grade. Suppose that coin is in an XF holder? [extreme, I know] Are you telling me that's a C XF?

    Pulled this statement out of Cline 4th Ed. related to the 1923-P in FH: "On some that are slabbed Full Head, the temple area is frequently weak, even nonexistent. Take careful note of weakness in the temple area. This coin is actually much scarcer then previously thought in Full Head." and "Many have a satiny finish and a strong Full Head. Generally, this coin meets normal grading standards. Obverse: Usually well struck, but 50 percent or better are weak around the date." and "When the grading services began, they used a description that read "including the 3 olive leaves in Miss LIberty's Hair" for the Full Head designation. That probably should be a bit relaxed on the 1923, since the line separating Miss Liberty's cheek, jawbone and ear hole is all there, but the three sprigs above that line is frequently flat. 10% struck with Full Heads."
