1966 25¢ - SMS or Business Strike?
First of all, my apologies for the quality of the picture but hopefully it’s good enough to answer my question. And, I don’t have a pic of the reverse as it is currently in grading. This pic was taken in an airtight capsule so any visible marks are on the case, not the coin. The one exception is the R in LIBERTY. It has a small cut that’s almost perfectly oriented with the tops of the legs on the R.
Anyway, I checked on my order yesterday and the grades and images are ready but they didn’t post them. But, I did notice that they changed the 66 25¢ to an SMS. I hope it’s an error because it certainly doesn’t appear to be an SMS to me. It has very deep flow lines and the details in the hair just don’t look quite crisp enough to be an SMS. What do y’all think - SMS or BS? I’ve searched the archives and was able to find anything definitive.
Thank you in advance for the help. - Mat
