Along with the grade, feel free to answer if you think it beaned or not. The latter is optional; I sensed a number of our members object to adding that. But, as usual, the big reveal is tonight. Good luck!

    On the fence between 64 and 65. How about 64+. Looks pretty original so I think it has a green CAC sticker too.

    Nice clash, I would feel it would merit a 65 if no cleaning/dipping involved.

    66…and no CAC if that is the grade

  • Morgan13Morgan13 Posts: 679 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think it looks pretty clean. I noticed the clash also. At first I thought it was a scratch then I noticed the shape.
    With all that said I also say-
    MS66 with a cac sticker.

    MS64 but very nice. Muted luster and strike away from gem

    nice piece, 64+ is my guess, I like your comment about the bean, that bean seems to irritate many, probably for the wrong reasons, but I get it. I'd say beaned here.

    What’s up with the luster?

    @lcoopie: pics are true views & represent the coin fairly, imo.

    I'm not processing that. How can you tell it circulated if there's no trace of wear?

    Because it’s a more acceptable response [due to the diminished luster] than lightly cleaned?

    You mean you don't know yourself what you mean, you're asking me? Or you're saying it's cleaned? The luster is muted, that doesn't mean anything.

    I need another Lincoln cent, I'm way better with those. ;) Way out of my comfort zone but I'm at 64 with no CAC.

    Yup. And lightly circulated for a nickel [that won’t show any wear for a long time] is as good a reason as any

    @Eldorado9 nailed this one as he got both the 65 grade & the sticker (that part was optional today). But also correct with the 65 were @jesbbroken, @privatecoin & @alaura22. Thanks to all for grading & the good comments!

    Maybe it didn’t sticker because they thought it was a 64

    When all 65s look like that, gradeflation will be over and they’ll have to go to a 100 pt scale

    You know, actually, that's a very interesting theory. And I'm not trying to be smart, saying that. Can circulation abate luster prior to showing any wear? If that's what you meant by lightly circulated MS63, I missed your point. But, yes, I think you're right, Sherlock, it can. :)
