GTG - 1943-D Nickel

FlyingAlFlyingAl Posts: 2,735 ✭✭✭✭✭

I saw this one on @ianrussell's MyCollect Guess The Grade, and when I saw the grade pop up... well, I thought it was under graded. So I put my money where my mouth is and bought it!

Good Luck!

    The strike and luster could be better. Maybe it looks better in hand. Because I include luster with the condition......MS64FS

    Edited/changed from 66 to 65, since you thought it looked undergraded.

    I love me some Jeffs, but the reverse carbon/black spots around E and U and the obverse "fingerprint toning" are enough to send me elsewhere. The fact that you thought/think it was undergraded - and bought it - leads me to guess 64, no FS. If I had not known of your opinion and purchase, I would have guessed 66, no FS. Regardless, I hope you enjoy it. ps - let us know when you get it back in an 67FS holder ...

    If we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

    66FS. They market graded it down for the paw prints.

    AU58, just to be different from everyone else

    Just to be different or do you think the coin might have graded that low? The former doesn’t sound like much of a reason to post.

    65FS would be what I would grade it.

    64FS muted luster, market preference for these is white or pearlescent with rolling luster. grading reflects this even if there is color under the brown.

    Mark.

    In looking at the photo of the coin I see something (a disturbance in the uniform appearance of the surface of the coin under the toning) on the obverse along the jaw line of TJ that caused me to think of possible high point wear. Thus AU58.

    I may be seeing something that is not there, but then again maybe there is. :)

    I will rule out AU58 as a guess. The coin is Mint State.

    I need to get my eyes checked. :)

    Thanks for confirming my suspicion that you weren’t just trying to be different. ;)

    Sorry, Alex, you can’t rule out AU58 as a guess - it’s already in the record as a guess. However, you may rule it out as a correct guess.😀

    Fair enough Mark. You may guess AU58, but it won't be right. :smile:

    My guess (above AU58) is already in. ;)

    65FS. These come nice and well struck. It really needs a bath in distilled water to see if you can get the haze off. I think acetone will remove some of the toning.

  • Eldorado9Eldorado9 Posts: 2,061 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Gorgeous Nickel! Looks 68 to me. Needs nothing, totally original piece.

  • marcmoishmarcmoish Posts: 6,146 ✭✭✭✭✭

    65+, can see it beaned at that. Nice catch!

  • braddickbraddick Posts: 22,824 ✭✭✭✭✭

    MS64!

  • robecrobec Posts: 6,527 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I’m torn between 64 and 65. The video shows some nice luster, but hair detail looks a little weak…….may be the lighting. I’ll guess 65 with the FS being the undergraded portion of the assigned grade.

    Lots of good guesses! The coin is graded:

    MS65FS.

    I felt it was around a 66+FS when I first saw it, and it had a look I loved. I couldn’t pass it up.

    No sticker unfortunately. ;)

    (Because cac doesn’t sticker the date)
