    Um ... if you want to play the 'guess the grade' game, you may wish to hide the PCGS certification number. ;)

    To thine own self be true...without going to the site and checking...you can still guess the grade:)

    I really like it.

    I'll guess MS-58

    :)

    Or AU-63

    [what a call a coin that looks like a 63, but with a tiny rub]

    LOL ... very true!

    My guess would have been AU-58 (cleaned) before I checked to see if the number was in the PCGS database.

    Cleaning lines are apparent in front of the chin and neck and below the right wing. A shame. It is a really nice high-AU coin otherwise.

    LoveMyLiberty correctly cited the die marriage, of course.
