Interesting. Were it not for the reeding ding behind the eye, I'd think this a different coin. Your scanner is....optimistic.

The darker "scratches" seen on the cheek in the scan are pretty much confirmed as unimportant in the images; indeed, some of them do not show up at all. The obverse fields seem a little "busier" than the scans indicated, and the gouge at the hairline draws the eye a little more. The reverse is still very, very nice.

I'm thinking 65 now.
The best thing about a bicycle is that it uses no gasoline, therefore the chance of fiery death is greatly reduced.

I'll post the real grade later this evening. If anyone else wants to take a stab at re-grading, go for it!

Looking at the reflection of your camera in the pictures, I'd say it has a good shot at a PL grade, therefore, MS64PL...

I like it at a MS-64.
If you like the PCGS rattlers I have a grading set on the 1881-S, but please be warned that the pictures are scans and I do need to update the pictures.

The scans are just Ok.

As numismaniac put it the very first post, and RJP put it the very last post, she grades MS64. I'm happy with her there, as I clearly got the coin and not the slab. I think it was very close to PL though. Good grading everyone!
