Nice full red Lincoln. This is one of the better ones I have found but need opinions

Badthad, this is one I was talking about comparing what you have to this one. Let me know if I made the right choice?

That's a really nice one. Although the ring ding and scratches on the reverse by the last A in America and the tiny carbon spot on the front might hold it to 66

I think the light hits in Lincoln and under America on the reverse along with the couple rim nicks on the reverse in the same area would keep this at 65rd

Agree with MS-66RD, 67 would not surprise.

i think you have a good one here. a couple minor ticks on top of the head. that little spot on the shoulder is not going to lower any grade on this one. there might be a small mark behind the ear but your magnification is so high I'm not even sure its visible to the eye. a tiny rim tick on rev K3 and some very minor marks to the right of the memorial.

i think this one is MS67RD it might be a stretch to get the +

PCGS is showing 90 at MS67RD $250 and 9 at MS67+RD $2750 so to make it worth it, it needs to pull at least a 67RD

The scratches on reverse and head are not visible with 5X loupe, you can barely see a nick on shoulder. The two things that concern me are the spot in the N of ONE CENT and the rim hit at 3 o'clock. I never do myself justice by posting at such high magnification. My stupid logic is that if it's good at this magnification then surely it's good under normal circumstances. The fields are smooth as baby's butt. I have been working on my photos but until I can post what I think you guys need to see, I mostly stay with coin scope. The coin is clean looking and the reverse detail is awesome to me. I will hold on to it awhile before I decide. As always thanks for the tips.

At least a 66+ in my opinion, depends how apparent the hit coming off the ear and the rim hit on the reverse is in hand weather or not it goes higher I believe.

Nice example.

Wow that's a stunner. At least MS-66 with a shot at 67.
