    had to check to see what is top-pop for type 1 bn and i see it is 66, so that is my bid. 66bn

    i only bid that since you say it has great color and luster. :)

  • My first thought was MS66BN, until I read @LanceNewmanOCC post that said that grade is a Pop Top.
    So I will say MS65+BN.

    That's a perfect brown cent. Sometimes they're more stunning than a mint red cent. I think 65 BN.

  • FlyingAlFlyingAl Posts: 2,844 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I don't think I've ever seen a GTG with a spread this close - everything is between 64 and 66.

    To me it looks clean as a 66. No rub and not enough dings as would be appropriate for a 65. But pics can be deceiving, and I do not discount you posted pics that might be deceiving....... You should reholder with a TureView which may display the colors you describe.

  • RayboRaybo Posts: 5,273 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looks like an 1886 variety one to me, only three graded 66 brn by PCGS in that grade, and there's a very slim chance that it's a 66 brn variety two...not one graded by PCGS!
    So IMHO it has to be a variety one less than a 66 .....I will stick with my original guess of 64+ brn.

    Gonna go with 66 RB, I think those reds pop more under a light.

    Edit: That is without doing research into the pop reports. Beautiful coin nonetheless, thanks for sharing.

    Sellers Photos. I will post the Trueview later when I post the grade.


  • coinbufcoinbuf Posts: 10,751 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I would grade it as 64rb, but I'll guess it is in a 65+bn holder.

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 22,671 ✭✭✭✭✭

    After seeing the second set of pictures, my grade is now MS66 BN

  • kirkminkkirkmink Posts: 172 ✭✭✭✭

    Hard to tell if that is just shine from the light or the high points have a touch of rub.

    I do see a tic on the cheek and eye-brow now, and some on the neck. I would revise my guess to 65BN, but I still think it looks more RB. The fields are very clear. If that is high-point rub though, then this will be an AU-58. Hard to tell without having it in hand to rotate in the light.

    Does the first one that said 65BN win the coin?

    I like the true view image, its a nice coin.

    I find interesting that I guess a point high and Jimnight guessed right on the money. But a member, @bearcave, that didn't even make a guess to this thread found these two guesses funny for some reason. I wonder how many points or color designators off @bearcave was thinking it should have been...

    I was going to say, the lol button is positioned perfectly for an accident when scrolling on mobile. Happened to me a couple times in the past
