    64 seems good
    the obverse holds it back.

    Yep 64.

    Great luster, but the obverse tic marks limit the grade. I’ll agree with 64, but 63 is a possibility.

    My first thought was 63 due to the highpoint hits.
    Remarkable strike and luster could easily overwhelm those concerns and push it to 64
    Will be very curious to see the results on this one!

    64, possible +

    The large blow-up really makes the flaws stand out. Comparing it to others I have seen, MS 65 is my opinion.

    Lots of little scratches in the fields at 3:00 on the Obv.

    You know that looks like you have the hand engraved AW varietyFS-901. Unattributed likely. Luster looks great. Hits take it it to 64, maybe 65.

    Nice luster, but a lot of chatter and some wear.....63 ... maybe 64. Magnification like this makes things look worse than in hand. Cheers, RickO

  • oldUScoinsoldUScoins Posts: 232 ✭✭✭✭

    I’ll go with 65.

    The coin does look nice, but I'll say 63. Some of the hits are gouging, the discolor at the sun looks to be more than just toning, and there is the UFO that Lady Liberty is pointing at. I can see it in a 64 holder, depending on the grading company or period of grading.

    My estimate is 64 as well.

    Fantastic photos, BTW.

    May make 64, but way too many hits on obverse for anything higher. Luster may save it from a 63. Nice looking coin if not for the many obverse hits.

    Looks like a 64 to me as well. Nice!

  • CoinJunkieCoinJunkie Posts: 8,772 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looks like an old NGC holder, so who knows. I'd give it a 65 today from the luster. The spot gives me some pause.

    In a very very old PCGS and NGC slab I could see it being in a 63 holder eligible for a gold CAC sticker. More recent slabs should see it in a 64 graded slab which is my grade; eligible for a CAC green sticker. A modern NGC slab which would be overgraded at 65 not eligible for any sticker.

    Obverse has nice strike with light chatter, reverse more chatter free but more softly struck in central area.

    Still a pleasant looking likeable coin.

    Whoops missed the toning spot at 10 oclock ... hopefully can be conserved.

    Luster looks outstanding, 65 was my first thought but now that the grade has already been posted it seems like I’m just trying to sound like I’m smart.

    MS66 taste on an MS63 budget.

    Aha, what looked like an old NGC holder was actually just a cropped TV.

  • orevilleoreville Posts: 11,718 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I am surprised at the PCGS 65 grade. Not dissing your coin but would be shocked if CAC stickers it. I do like your coin but feel it is overgraded at 65.
