I wasn't the slightest bit upset! Quite the opposite, really. I try to have fun with all of it. When I saw the coin up for auction as MS61, I really did think: "either my IQ has dropped 40 points due to age, or NPG messed this one up".

Alas, I can't hold on to most of the coins I buy, but under-graded stuff usually sells for at least a little more than I paid for it, which helps me sustain this expensive hobby of mine.

I would have guessed AU-58 but as noted the detail is very strong and evidence of circulation is slight. An uncirculated judgment from NGC is not at all unreasonable. Little or no luster is visible in the photos and lack of luster is the likely justification for the low MS grade.
Still nicer than my type example!
