    Really difficult to assess the grade from those pictures - a lot of glare. That being said, it appears to be a high grade coin. Are you referring to the urine color tarnish? Yeah, I would dip it also...Cheers, RickO

    As ricko said, hard to tell from the pictures but I have a 4 ICG's. Three Kennedys and a Washington. IMO if I cracked them out and sent them to our hosts, I would drop AT LEAST 1 grade.

    Those are the seller's pics.

    I'll take some and post them.

    Beautiful coin. The weakness in the shield/tail feathers would preclude a PCGS MS67 grade iMO. Otherwise, the slight toning is probably enhancing the surfaces rather than distracting from them.
    If you are happy with a bright Kennedy in a PCGS MS66 slab then I say go for it.

    I always grade a coin by first looking at the rims.
    IMO this coin is not a 67 at first glance.

    Some coins are just plain "Interesting"

    Don't be sorry. That is a nice, high grade coin, but not a 67. Smooth fields and nice luster would make it a 65+ or straight 66 in my book.

    Me thinks the light toning enhances the "look".
