    I agree with @keyman64 , a better looking coin (probably) ... but still hard to tell. There is something in the obverse fields, and it's pretty bright. This one doesn't speak to me either, but that's me, not you.

    Proofs are the one coin that sometimes need either outstanding pictures or an in hand inspections to get a solid idea.

    Further, prices realized need to be carefully looked at here, and patience is a virtue. There are a LOT of proof Merc's out there. Based on the chart shown, and your previous pictures and price points, I'd be watching for a 65 that spoke to me at under / at 240.

    The spreads on proof mercs are so thin until 66. Go for 66's unless it's a superlative 65.

    I would pass on that one.... Not a holder collector, so would not pay that price. Cheers, RickO

    Why hasn't it CAC'd would be my first question.

    Again, older holder/SN... pictures are not helping it sell.

    Priced a bit high based on the OGH.
