Does this look right to you?

This does not look like a 66 to me - thoughts?

    Amazing. It looks like a parking lot coin 🤨

    Maybe just a bad picture - the TV looks pretty good.............

    Better picture just looks like it’s rotting as I look at it. Maybe it was ok when slabbed but that’s excessive damage to be straight graded 🤨

    Based on the TV, I'd say it's OK but I'd take a hard pass on it!

    The TrueView toning is a little better but still unattractive to me.

    Strike looks very average.

    That coin is really ugly. I bet even RickO would pass on that coin. ;)

    Yes, looking at the TV on the PCGS site, I would have been doing cartwheels (If I could) and this coin had come back to me. No way would I have expected anything close to that grade.

    Yup, gotta look past the toning I guess.

    Looks to be pretty clean as to marks or scrapes, but the weak strike and the horrid toning would make me walk right by this coin.

    If it rots anymore you’ll be able to look right through it 😂
    In interest of being honest I would give it a home 😉

    I'm pretty sure I still wouldn't be a fan (especially at the price point) but with the way it's toned and given the grade, I wouldn't be surprised if the coin is much more lustrous than the photo shows. I'm not saying that outweighs the dark toning, but it could change how dark/flat the color looks or at least give significant life to the surfaces. For those saying the strike is weak, it's not perfect and it might be weak for a low relief coin, but for a 1921 that's a pretty darn good strike.

    Slightly better than average strike. Very unattractive toning pattern. Pass.

    All glory is fleeting.
  • silverpopsilverpop Posts: 6,564 ✭✭✭✭✭

    not a fan of the toning makes the coin ugly i'd pass on this coin

    Looks pretty nice to me. I wouldn't spend 20k on it, but the grade seems right at 66 from what I can tell.
