I'm way lower than the rest of you so far.

I'm in at MS64RB - I think I'm seeing more contact spots and ticks than y'all are apparently. I also see Strike Doubling on the reverse, it does have some really nice color and for that it might push it to a plus grade, also see lots of die polish and some rough areas on the reverse under the toning, that will probably hold it back from any higher grade than a MS65, I could be wrong though.

A nice 66RB . Too many spot marks for a 67 .

In Memory of Butch L.

Just as I expected, though to be fair it has really nice eye appeal and that alone should've kicked it a + grade.

I feel the grade is low. It might just be the eye appeal I can't see past.

Sure looks better than 64 to me. Just a knockout.

This one is the most egregious. In MS there is a very strong strike, solid field, and eye appeal, this should be 66+. You are wowed when you see this coin, a RD 17 is awesome too, but you are not wowed, rather amazed.

I suspect the coin is lacking the full cartwheel luster that's needed to hit 66 but that's a pretty big hit.
