A little blurred but it sure looks almost prooflike. I would guess MS65 is right, those couple hits in the field are the only issues I can see that stick out.
Rest in Peace

Can you elaborate more on the weak strike. I'm not seeing it. Am I missing something?

This looks like a decent strike to me. A lot of these are weak on the corn stalks on the reverse. This one is far from that. I say 64 min. Nice coin!

Looks like a 64 to me. Numismedia FMV would be $81.00

I'm in the MS-64 camp on this nickel.

I'd say 63-64. I own more than a few of these and weak strikes don't seem to be an issue on them as far as TPGs go. The as viewed left corn is notoriously weak on these. As well, stars 1 and 2 are often weak however other stars are commonly weak in random combinations.

Its hard to say what you would get from selling this on eBay, especially raw, but with the right description and photos realistically I can see it going for between 50 to 70.

I was at MS64 myself. And it does have PL qualities. As for selling I won't. I picked this up yesterday as an upgrade for my 7070 Type Set. Thank you everyone for your input.

I will say MS-63 or 64, it looks a little better than the MS-62 example I cracked out for my album. Not an expert on this type so this is just a guess on my part and is why I purchased graded examples for the album. This one was MS-62 and yours looks a little better than this one to me

Wow, Bryan. For someone who isn't an expert on these you sure have a keen eye. Thats one of the better strikes I've seen.
