Not my coin, just something that I came across while looking to see what was out there...this piece has a very interesting look to it, as well as a very interesting grade.
Should be rather easy to locate this one online, so if you already know, maybe don't "guess" 😄

    Looks like O.105a. I haven’t seen this one out there. At least I don’t recall seeing it before. Looks MS63 to me, possibly better, depending on the surfaces which I can’t really tell from the pics.

    I won’t “guess” 🤣

    Interesting skin. Not for me but that doesn’t mean it isn’t pretty or a great coin.

    I think this would be a super neat coin to see at a show sometime... these pics are probably just a fantasy someone had under the bright lights of the big top. 🎪

    63……it just needs a bath! 😂

    The second set of images look more accurate, probably. I suspect MS, maybe 63ish. I like the look, generally speaking ... but the first images look fully over exposed.

    Going to say AU58

    The pictures, they make it hard. I see pull away toning at the date. I'm thinking AU-something, but wouldn't be surprised at a MS62. The dark toning or staining resembling a beard is a bit of a turn off.

    I don't know, but 62+ might be considered interesting to some. :)

    Since this isn't my coin and don't see much reason to stretch this out forever, ill reveal it pretty soon... but I will say that nobody is all that close yet 🤔

    I don't see any wear, hard to judge the luster but it looks like an amazingly well preserved example with some dark toning. I see it as at least a 65 possibly a 66.

    Cool, we have a couple winners.
    Congrats! 👏

  • Herb_THerb_T Posts: 1,524 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Too bad it looks like coal was dragged over it, it’s an awesome coin!

  • charlesf20charlesf20 Posts: 384 ✭✭✭

    It's slightly because of it's age.

  • jayPemjayPem Posts: 3,870 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yeah, not sure why I started a gtg with someone else's coin, a first for me, but I'd love to see this on in hand someday...
    Something tells me it'd be a sight to behold..🤯

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

    I can imagine it's an impressive coin in hand, but 66 seems rather optimistic on the grade. YMMV.

    A 66 is supposedly an attractive coin. It is hideous and also looks dipped out to me.

    With the luster and negative eye appeal, I think it would be maxed out a 64.

  • cameonut2011cameonut2011 Posts: 9,915 ✭✭✭✭✭

    At least it isn’t stickered.
