    Looks ms to me... The toning makes it tough... If I had to toss a number... 63?

    With toning muting luster and with scratches on reverse at 10 to 11 o'clock, I feel it will still grade 63. I truly like the coin, Greg. Did you buy it at FUN or had you had it a while?

    Pretty coin. I'm thinking AU - 55 maybe?
    I don't really see wear on the reverse, but the obverse left fields make me think circulated... the leg, boobs and cheek are tough to tell from the photos...

    61, luster appears to be lacking.

    Cheers, and God Bless, CRHer700 :mrgreen:

    Thanks Jim. I really like it too.

    Actually it came from JJTeaparty about ~30 years ago.

    Looks like a high AU to me... no true view I take it?
    Pic is perhaps creating a bit of extra flash?
    Surfaces could be anywhere between pristine and polished, wouldn't be able to judge.
    Looks like a superb coin regardless

    This picture is much more accurate to the coin in hand, imo, than the trueview that I saw yesterday, which was terrible. I think all the silver toner images were bad, but the copper and nickel images were pretty good.

    55 seems correct

    I'll guess AU58. Whatever the grade, I really like the toning. And that's an issue that's very tough to locate with attractive color.

    AU 58. I see just a little rub on the right facing breast. The eye appeal is fantastic with sharp details!

    My guess is 55. Pretty coin.

    Well thanks all for the guesses and comments.

    Needless to say I was very disappointed in the result. I assumed easy 55, solid shot at 58:

    The only thing I can see is that they probably didn’t like this area with the dark toning around the stars and outline of Liberty. There are no hairlines etc. and I certainly think it’s market acceptable. I won’t be putting it on eBay at 99 cents and letting it rip!

    When I first received the coin from JJT, I remember thinking wow, this is what a nice old original coin stored for decades in an old paper envelope, possibly with a rubber band across the obverse, looks like…

    I'm not seeing a problem/cleaning issue.

    I see slight hairlines but that's normal wear for an AU coin, IMHO.

    From my experience PCGS hates the "haloing" around the eagle and the relatively brighter surfaces around it. I had a few Capped Bust Halves come back details because of that.

    The coin was probably burnished long ago in order to bring out the details. The entire coin was probably very dark before this was done. In spite of the "details" grade it should still bring good money as it has good eye appeal and is not a common date coin. Album collectors would probably love to have it in their albums!

    It’s been in my 7070 album since 1991, so I certainly agree with that part!

    What’s interesting, I guess, is that the seated dollar submitted with similar “issues”, straight graded!?
