Thank you, came back 65+. In this case PCGS was very consistent, it was 65+ years ago and 65+ now.
It does make me wonder about the regrade (first time, probably last time I'll do it) whether or not the grader really doesn't know what it came in as.

I did get a great pic of it though for my background :).

Curious how this one looks in hand. My guess is they possibly dropped it 1/2 point for the subdued luster on a few high points.

Luster looks pretty good to me, I would have said MS-66. Did you crack it out and send it in raw, or send it for a re-grade in the original holder?

Grade aside, stunning example.

PCGS is tough on these. the 80(CC) should be sharp and bold so the strike on this one is AVG-. some broken luster across the jaw and neck. the fields and cheek look pretty good. the coin has nice eye appeal. I had it MS65.

please wait 48 hours to post grades

Stellar coin. I was going to say MS-65, but I showed up too late.

At first glance (at the obverse)I was at MS66 but after looking closely at the reverse I believe a couple hard hits might have held it back. Stunning example regardless.

Sorry all and thank you! Very proud to own this one. I'll hold off posting the grades a bit longer :).

I was expecting MS66 at the least, not a big deal though. Yes I sent it in the holder, I do not trust my excavation skills with this coin enough to dig it out myself :)

Certainly looks like an MS-66 to me. Beauty!

65+ is nothing to sneeze at, but I do think this one should be MS-66.

I think 65+ is probably right on, it's really close to a 66 grade, but the differences are sometimes what one sees in hand in person, tough to call from a static photo. Still a beauty of a coin.

Given the typical exaggeration of Tru-view pics, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised my 66 guess was too high. But it's a killer coin.
