I haven't posted a new coin I've bought in a while. I won this Indian cent at Heritage (my first experience with them) 2 weeks ago. Overall I'm pleased with both the coin and heritage. It is certainly a different experience compared to bidding on eBay or Great collections auctions, but a good one.

As for the coin... the luster is strong and the color is great. The only detraction in my eyes is the slight partial print by OF in 'OF AMERICA'. This is an upgrade from my last 1905 that had way too mushy of a strike for my liking. I started buying late date nice Indian cents just because I liked them but at this point I'm over half way to a 1900-1909 short set.

Anyway please feel free to guess the grade and or share your 1905 cents. I'll reveal the grade of this one in about 24 hours.


Thanks in advance as always.

    65RB. The small print by “OF” should not detract from the grade. Nice color & good tips & diamonds. Here’s a couple of my 1905’s: I still have the true view one (66RB) but the psychedelic one is sold.

    I like it! A lot actually.

    I think she's a full Gem.

    65RB

    A couple of light ticks on the cheek keeps her in the 64RB grade range even with the gem reverse- nice coin and color.

    My guess is 64RB.

    As requested, here’s my 1905 - PCGS Pop 13, only 5 finer. Snow PDS grade = 14 (4,5,5):

    I’ll say 65RB, the print by “of” detracts from 66RB.

    @rnkmyer1 those are both quite nice, but the color on that psychedelic 1905 is something else. Not sure I recall seeing another one quite like it.

    @winesteven that's a wonderful cent. Superb in pretty much everyway I think.

    Thanks both for sharing and everyone else for their guesses.

    I'm going to let this go another few hours before I reveal the grade. Good guesses!

    To everyone who guessed 65 RB (7 people) you are correct. And it seems that both CAC and photoseal, the applicable sticker people lol, agree. The remaining guesses (5) were all 64RB. I see this one as a solid 65 and my initial impression is that of @CRHer700 I think the partial print holds it to a 65.


    I do unfortunately believe I meant to use these images ^ as the first two in my original post but reused the larger TV images from heritage instead. These are the photoseal images and in comparing the two sets of images I think this coin falls somewhere closer to the photoseal images in hand. The TV images make it look a tad dark.

    I have 6/10 coins needed to complete a IHC short set 1900-1909. Not a single one is similar to the others color wise and I may continue on in trying to build a set where not one resembles the others. Here's a quick (not great) image to illustrate what I mean.

    Thanks all for playing, have a good Saturday night!

    Hey thanks for mentioning me! I am by no means an expert, and this was a good opportunity to learn. It's good to know that my learning is progressing.
