    I can't find the luster- probably just the photo.
    I'll go MS65 BR

    63 brown. Did someone actually pay to have that slabbed?

    Yes I did. It’s part of my BN/RB memorial registry. Different strokes for different folks. Besides, why wouldn’t I? Another from the same eBay album sold for $200+. If I can buy the entire album for $5 and sell just 1 coin from it leaving a net profit of roughly $175 it makes perfect sense to do it.

    If you can get that kind of money for other coins in your registry set perhaps you should sell them now while the market for them is hot. Don't wait for the market to cool.

    There looks to be a little wear on the coat. It could have been overlooked as "cabinet rub." The thing to bear in mind is it's MS64, at minimum, if you overlook the rub. I believe some refer to these as "AU64s." The "+" isn't hurting it none, either. This will market as a near-gem, or gem, although I believe it has a very accurate technical grade on it. It's a pretty coin. I could look at it all day long, and not tire of it.

    Not all of them have been graded yet. It’s a work in progress.

    Man, grading is all over the place. We have people saying anything from full GEM to AU and everything in-between. AU58+ is like splitting the atom. I'm positive it would come back around MS63BN if resubmitted. Well, admittedly I haven't seen it in hand, but the pictures suggest to me MS62-63. Especially with the vertical hit right on the cheek

    To the OP, your photos are interesting because on this coin and that 22 plain cent, the forum members are guessing significantly over the actual label grades. Either pcgs is ridiculously bad at grading, or your photos are glamor shots not capturing the true wear & present state the coin is in. If these photos are accurate, every coin should easily gold bean at cac. You may want to start grading exclusively with cac, as your coin values will jump dramatically.
