This isn't mine, it's just another to help test our grading skills. What grade do you think it is? Bonus, can you get the VAM?
Grade reveal in 48 hours. Have at it!

MS-62. Definitely the obvious scarface, the others probably had the VAM correct. This is a good example to see how the unstruck portion of the coin by Miss Liberty's ear has dead luster which is often confused for wear. You can see this particular example has the unstruck dead space continue on Miss Liberty's cheek because of the uneven strike due to the crack.

typical pathetic strike for this year. TPG's tend to like this type of toning and will bump the grade for it. for me, I dont get it and the toning on this one is getting to be later stage where its moving to the black

the hits across the profile are significant. it appears that there may be two intentional "X" in that area. natural scratches just dont do that. the eye appeal for me is on the low side. I'm saying they graded it MS62 for me i'd say MS61. add details if those Xs are intentional

MS62 at best. Beat up cheek, and poor strike.
