Hey All. I picked up this Lincoln 50 Cent Commemorative! I love the eagle reverse on this coin. How would you grade?

My eyes are drawn to the obverse where the lumps about Lincoln mouth and lines about his eyes seem ... well ... wrong to me.

It could just be your photos ... but if present in hand I have reservations about authenticity ... although everything else looks just fine.

What does the coin weigh?
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

I am between MS-64 and MS-65. I think overall eye appeal would bias the decision towards MS-65.

Looks hazy on the obverse IMO MS-64 at the very most, still nice though.

I'm with coinfrog and jbuck, I've got 64s in my container that don't look this good.

Nice coin
