Hey folks

Let me know what your guesses are for this coin.

It has superb luster even with the toning and full cartwheel.

Thanks!

some lack of detail, probably due to not the freshest of dies.
If that is right, then
MS-64.

Toning makes it difficult to see surface details clearly, especially in the right obverse field, which seems to suggest scattered marks. Could be MS-64, but perhaps only a 63.

shadows may be hiding markers. AU58 or as high as MS64. using these photos i'd be comfortable at MS63, there looks like quite a few scratches/marks under that toning. especially on the right obv field

That's a beauty. 64 with a shot at 65.

Strike is reasonable (split thumb; a lot of head detail).
Scratched on the left leg and (maybe) the rays.

I think it's still MS and 64 would be quite reasonable.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

I think this coin has some obverse surface issues. It doesn't look like toning, but actual depressions in the surface.





The eagle's breast looks like it has been rubbed.

Some bag marks in the right obverse field, I'd say MS-63.

Ns- I've looked at it under high power loupes, there's no surface issues.

Also, the breast is notorious for flat spots there for weak strikes.

There is luster on the breast.

Panzaldi- There are a few ticks on the right side, but also a few that are superficial.

Anyone that knows this series also knows that the right side is also notorious for marks showing up, even on gem coins.

yep, however in this case its they are tough to see with the toning and shadows. to me they looked a little more than normal and a couple were deeper than is typically seen. its just a tough call when assessing photos especially when you cant see the surfaces properly and thus my grade range of AU58 or as high as MS64
