This one is for my slabbed set.

Two sets of images, for two different looks. One highlights luster, one highlights details and color.

Guess the grade...

Congrats! Is it just me, or do higher grade commems tend to get a break at the TPGs? I'm not referring specifically to this coin, but I seem to undergrade consistently on close-ups of almost any example.

IMO, I think usually NGC is a little tougher on commems (not this coin) on average, and PCGS seems to have a default MS64 grade for MS commems. So, yes, I get what you're saying, and agree to some degree.

This particular coin I feel is a low-end 65, but I got it for a great price (closer to CDN 64 money then 65 money), so I am happy.
