    PR 66 on nickel.
    MS 65 on the so-called dollar. Pretty as ever. SCD makes me think of Keets

    Nice nickel can’t tell a number grade. But I don’t think it cams. But it sure is beautiful. Nice coin. As for the medal no idea but I like it also

    Gorgeous specimens. I believe 65 on both with no CAM on the proof nickel.

    Nickel, PF65. No Cameo.

    My 65 guess is not based on anything. You can not grade proofs from a photo since hairlines on the coin are usually not seen in the photo.

    As for the HK-120 I have no clue, but I like it.

    PF64CAM, I would not give it a cam but I think PCGS did. No clue on the SCD as I've never really seen or been around many of these, wild guess is MS65RB

    PF65CAM. A stunner, as good as they get contrast wise.

    MS66RB on the SCD lovely color.

    PR65Cameo and seems accurate.

    MS65BN and seems undergraded. It's now in a PCGS holder with the reverse(monument) facing out.

    Nice on the nickel.
    Slab shot shows more frost on the lower bust than the original shot. Again nice coin

    I'm going to throw in a bone in asking Flying Al if he thinks the streak-type frost on the Mont. of the 1940 proof looks similar to the cam 1938 proof he recently debunked. And yeah, a larger photo would help.

    Nope. This is definitely genuine frost.
