Please crop and show much larger images of both sides. This pic is of no value.

The coin looks mottled. Nowhere close to being a 65.

@diamond, there are only a small number of legit grading devices that we recommend here and I don't think that ACGS is one of them. It might be these same folks:

ACGS is a new one to me. Just another of a bunch of basement slabbers. Alway buy the coin not the holder.

These basement slabbers never put actual, high-quality coins in their slabs. If the people who ran this basement-slabbing operation ever happened to find a raw, high-quality coin, you know what they'd do with it? They certainly wouldn't put it in one of their el-cheapo slabs. They'd send it off to a real slabbing company, so they could get some real money for it. The coins trapped in basement slabs are always cleaned, overgraded, mis-identified, damaged or otherwise have problems that no genuine TPG would accept for the grade.

Impossible to tell from that photo but since it's a basement slabber probably an AU details coin that they slap in a holder with an "MS-65" label.

if I saw a posting like this I would not touch it with a 10' pole. the fact that there are no bids should indicate why

Close up photos of both sides would help.
