Thoughts on grade and eye appeal?
MS60, eye appeal? Standard. Congrats!
The whole worlds off its rocker, buy Gold™.
That was my first thought.
There's light wear especially on the Indian's cheek bone. Looks like an AU58. Very nice coin. I like it a lot.
Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

I dont think its wear, I think its just a bit of a weaker strike. Not a lot of marks - my first thought was 64. But looks kinda dull, might take it down to a 63.

MS62.... Was leaning to a lower grade, then looked again.... I like Indian gold coins...probably makes me over grade them. Cheers, RickO
64 was my first impression.
I'm in the 58 crowd,
At least AU58

I would say a 55--there seems to be noticeable wear on that lower, telltale feather on the obverse. The reverse looks sharper, but there may be slight wear on the breast of the eagle.
61 Strong D is my guess
I'm with the 58 group. Nice looking Strong D
Nice slider, 58/61; rare date, conservative grading.
If it's a 58 it is much nicer than most of the others: https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1911-d-2-50-strong/images/7943
Edited to add; on reverse there is a questionable patch on reverse upper part, may be nothing.
58, shot 61, J.P.
I think it could go either way 58-61
Wouldn’t be surprised to see it 62
These coins often have some weakness at the bottom feathers of the obverse. This one seems to have a little of that.
Also, eye appeal appears excellent IMO

63 all day every day
I'm in the 62 camp......Very nice look !
These are hard to grade from photos. My initial guess was MS63, so I'll stick with that.
Man....my first thought was way higher than the crowd. I'll go with 62.

Should I reveal or does anyone else want to play. some may be surprised.
I just searched for a reveal . . . . . the thread has drifted all the way down Page 2 . . . . . . .
Nice coin, grade makes sense!
