    I want to go against the grain, just because, but I agree with the consensus

    I think the latent prevents a sticker. Otherwise a beauty at 65

    Coin is brown, further opinion would be difficult

    I’ll guess MS66 BN and bless you for not asking for guesses as to grade and whether it stickered.😉

    Oh Mark, be a good sport and guess both. After all, technically speaking, that's what one goes through when one sends a raw coin to CACG. Yes, I know CACG automatically stickers a coin unless it's body bagged.

  • DisneyFanDisneyFan Posts: 1,655 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I can't grade; but, is there a fingerprint on the obverse?

  • tcollectstcollects Posts: 825 ✭✭✭✭

    I would guess that is what caused the stripe pattern in front of the portrait.

    We weren’t asked to guess how CACG graded it as a raw coin. And that would have been entirely different from guessing how a coin graded at PCGS or NGC and if it stickered,

    65 BN (if no bean, it is certainly deserving).

    So you think that guessing two outcomes (how the coin graded and whether it stickered) is the same as guessing one (how the coin graded)?

    MS64 Brown 1909. If a coin has a fingerprint I will not grade it higher than MS64 and that coin has a big, obvious one.

    What does a 1909/8 $20 have to do with this thread?

    That is their guess to what the label will say. USPS tracking says anticipated arrival tomorrow.

    That would be quite the labeling error and an incredible guess.😉

    He said guess the date, mint, grade, color, and variety, so I assumed that the pictures coin was a guess, not the one that was coming.

    Thank you. I’m definitely confused, as the thread title conflicts with the posted picture. If it’s not the coin expected back tomorrow, why post it, especially with the cert number covered up? On the other hand, if it is, why ask people to guess the date and mint, (among other things) which are already apparent?

    66BN. Even though it does not have a CAC sticker since it just got graded, I believe it would sticker at this grade!
