This coin just arrived in the mail from a dealer in Europe.
I think around the MS63 - MS65 range.
I paid the equivalent of 500 USD.
Thoughts on the grade?
It's genuine. It looks a little lifeless, which might be the lighting, but it might just be AU58 due to high point rub on the cheekbone and shoulder.
Most of these coins look like they a rub. This one looks like it’s been dipped too harshly or too long. I also grade it AU-58, but a holder number of MS-62 would not surprise me.
I think the first two responses nailed this one. If it is MS, the muted luster will limit it to 62.
AU58. Seems to have very lt wear.
I think the overexposure in some of the pictures is making it look harshly dipped. There are some signs that it was dipped at some point but I think it falls into the market acceptable category. I wouldn't be surprised to see it in a MS 63 holder and I'd say you got a very good deal!
I will go with MS62.... The lighting seems to mute the coins appearance.... Cheers, RickO
Thanks for the opinions, everyone. I'm going to agree with MS62. The appearance in hand is right in between the two sets of lighting in the photos.
