    The top one has a bit of a weak strike, but very clean fields and devices. It's in an NGC holder, so I agree with @marcmoish - it's likely a 65RB. The second one has a strong strike, but a few minor ticks on the obverse field, and it looks like maybe some machine doubling as well, in a PCGS holder so I also agree 64RB.

    I find them both attractive.
    Congratulations 👍👍

    My grades would be MS-65 on the top one and MS-64 on the bottom one.

    The piece at the top is really exceptional so far as preservation goes.

    NGC graded this one MS-64.

    Thanks Bill. Even Blown up like a dinner plate it is hard to find the slightest mark.

    Yes the second coin is a J-228. Which is now part of the Indian Cent Set according to Red Book.

    There is a chance that the planchet is slightly thinner on the left (united) side. The weakness shows slightly on the front and the reverse. The Indian is hammered.

    The mintage on that pattern was high for a pattern, but it has no business becoming a part of the Indian Cent set. I would say that dealer greed is pushing that one.

    Very nice! I like the top coin overall better and think that MS66 is possible. The shield rev is cool but a bit busier and I'm going MS64 for it.

    I was thinking maybe a slightly tapered planchet on coin 1. I don't know if that affects the grade but I will say its in a 64 holder.
    coin 2 I think 63 because of the marks on the obv.

    Both nice coins
    I am wondering how a pattern can be considered part of the regular set. Seems odd

    Would the denticles be lighter if it is a tapered planchet. Kinda strange.

    I'm not sure but the Red Book considers it part of the set. There were 1,000 minted. Better huuuury and get one before they are all gone. B) LOL.

    The denticles would be lighter.

    I'm going with 66, 63. Hits on obv in second one bring it down for me. But, both are spectacular, and i'm not even much of an IHC guy! Maybe I'll have to change that! Nice purchases!

    All over. A good portion From Rick Snow at Eagle Eye. Heritage and Great Collections as well. Even a couple from Ebay. I am an equal opportunity buyer. Stacks too but not recently. I am a sucker for really attractive Indians. They were the first series I started collecting and have gone back to them recently.

    Sorry for the long wait. I got busy on the honey do list.

    They are both graded MS64. The NGC coin has a green Bean. I will probably have it crossed eventually. Maybe to CAC not sure yet.

    The J-228 is in an OGH and is Photo Sealed. It looks much nicer in hand. the marks are not as prevalent as when blown up like that. Great color.

    Thanks for the comments and guesses.
