This coin turned up in a foreign auction. Photo in natural light, some bagmarks and a bit of toning . Hard to know what to make of it. Possible PL?

    My grade guess is MS62.

    Can't tell PL but I'd say likely not by PCGS standards. Low ms to me too. You do have to be careful with toned coins... Sometimes the toning can hide other things.

    hard to tell whether PL is a worthy consideration... 62 tops in my view. It is fair to note that higher grade 92-CC dollars are tougher than most might think.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    You can’t even really see Liberty’s cheek, anymore, on most MS60’s.😉

    Kuenker sold a large number of U.S gold coins a few years ago that were graded by NGC Europe. A lot of the coins were conservatively graded and they did very well when crossed at PCGS with numerous upgrades. That’s my only experience with European auction coins.

    Yes, well it was a bit less than what I see on ebay or PCGS values and was an ordinary MS62. However there are mirrors near to 9 inches despite the toning. The strike is really good but the bagginess holds it down. I don't know why iPhone 11S photos - or at least mine - do this to coins (I mean the fields which look all blotchy - some time ago I posted a fairly rare New Hebrides 1982 5 francs that had absolutely wonderful lustre and just did not show it).
    Anyway, Mark was spot on I must say.
