The cameo on this 1921-D is pretty nice. They don't usually come like this.

    That’s a looker and it appears to be semi-PL, too.

  • Wow, that is beautiful!

    Super nice 21-D! Hard enough to find in white, let alone in semi-PL.

    Nice! Probably more PL than my 61PL:

    It's got alittle haze on it.
    I'm not going to touch it.
    I like it just the way it is.
    Buy the coin not the holder
    I don't know if a dip would expose a more PL finish. To risky, I wouldn't want to disturb the frost on the devices. They all have really nice full frosty coverage.

    I don't think there's much risk. I doubt PCGS will diminish its appearance. The upside is 11x price guide value. Looking at the TV I can see why it's not currently PL. I have my doubts now if it can improve but I think it's worth the~$50 to find out.

    I don't think the TV does this coin any justice. It's much more appealing in hand. My images show the coin better I think.

    PCGS tends to be conservative on giving the PL designation when there is a huge jump in value, though I've gotten PL designations on NGC coins including an AU Bust half.

    I get it, I've owned some coins like this. One way you can tell how PCGS will assess the mirrors is that it will photograph like it does in the TV from 3:00 to 6:00 on the obverse and about the same location on the reverse. You want to really see that darkness and then you'll get the PL (or DMPL). Unfortunately there is too much "haze" or surface condition is nice but not quite mirror-like on the rest of the fields. That doesn't mean it doesn't look great in person though, you just can't read a book with it.
