This coin was brought to my attention, what do you guys think it would grade?

    The scratches on the reverse next to the wing are troublesome. Overall it appears to have unusual surfaces. I think it is overpriced for what it is (and for what it is not).

    AU details scratched/cleaned, and no FH cookie either.

    MS66 taste on an MS63 budget.

    I agree, I think it's a details coin.. patch of marks on the rev, and some scratches on the left obv. too. otherwise MS or high AU

    Cleaned. I'd go AU details at best.

    If it was any good it would be in a pcgs or ngc holder

    I would grade it pass.

    Gold colored coin? It should not be that color. 🙃

    I would definitely not buy a coin like that raw off Ebay. I would have to see it in person first.

    I do not like the coin. AU details-cleaned and scratched.

    Can’t tell AU or uncirculated, but surfaces are definitely not original, and it’s most certainly not a coin I would buy.

    Hard pass.

    The coin has no luster whatsoever and the scratches are very bothersome.

    AU problem coin.

    Scratches on obverse and reverse....not sure if it has been dipped or soft buffed...Overpriced ... Not for me. Cheers, RickO

    Scratches obv and rev alone means a details coin regardless of the funky surfaces. Even without those issues it's only a VF/XF coin and certainly not worth the current bid. You can get an MS-63FH for that money. Going to be a very disappointed buyer.

    These bidders must be mad at their wallets.

    I’m surprised by your question.

    The base grade under the cleaning is "super slider." There is a rub on the knee and a patch of scratches on the reverse. The price is probably double what it's worth, retail.
