    Be brave and take a stab at it, everyone else will be wrong too so you won't be alone. :D

    Wow. That is definitely some awesome color. A minor rim ding on the obverse. What is up though with the reverse around united. Since it's a "guess" the grade, I'll jump on a limb and guess Unc details.

    @Manifest_Destiny You are the closest guess so far. :D

    I hope pcgs shrunk the font on the label to provide the thorough explanation of problems for you:

    Details: damaged, rim ding, questionable color, cleaned.

    What else did I miss?

    While I already posted my guess, I had considered guessing MS68. But I couldn’t get past the rim issues on each side. I suppose I should have, especially considering the challenge that it would be impossible to guess correctly.

    That reverse has been scraped with a sander (or something along that line). Letters in “United” have metal shaved all the way to the flat part of the planchet. How could this even remotely have the chance of a straight grade?

    I can’t tell what the specific issue is with the reverse rim, but the coin appears to deserve a details-grade. Yet, if that had been the outcome, I doubt that this thread would exist.😉

    …And the reverse of this gorgeously toned example is further enhanced by the presence of original log cabin-brown colored patina at the rim from 9:00 to 10:00.

    Don't want to Hijack your thread @ifthevamzarockin Just wanted to show you this one I got from the mint years ago!

    Not sure where yours came from. The screwdriver on this one must have slipped when they were putting it in the case! Yes, straight from the Mint this way! 😖 🤬

    So when PMD happens at the mint it's a mint error?

    But really thanks for bring up a genuine mint error. ;)

    Anyone care to give an opinion why it is or why it is not a mint error!

    It is not a tapered planchet because the “damage”/weakness is only on 1 side

  • CoinscratchCoinscratch Posts: 7,694 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The toning is on top of the scrape so it was the mint pack crimper in the bag room with Mrs. Smith?

    So someone (not me) must be able to tell if this happened during the minting process or after the minting process.

  • OAKSTAROAKSTAR Posts: 5,452 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I like @1madman explanation. Damage on only one side.

    Man made toning.
    No Fedeer Fingers here.
    The coin was Damage and alterated after the Minting.

    If the OP think it is Feeder Finger to show me the reeds where is located those scraches.

    Not you bring this. You just mention thanks to brink an Mint Error. I do not have any intentions to blame or something else in this direction.

    I like this topic because open so many doors.

    I am very courious to see what PCGS will say and what No. give to this coin between 80 and 99

    If the planchet was damaged you would see the scratches below the letters, the scratches are on top of the letters. ;)
    That would indicate it was scratched after it was stuck.
    Also in the low part of the U on the inside you can see displaced metal or a slight burr.

  • OAKSTAROAKSTAR Posts: 5,452 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yep, that makes sense.

    Does this picture show the displaced metal?

    Yes but this one shows it better. ;)

  • OAKSTAROAKSTAR Posts: 5,452 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Oh, now I see it. So when you say displaced, you mean it took a hit?
