Hey all. How would you grade this Quarter Dollar. It does exhibit strong cartwheel luster on both sides. Starting to get some mild hazing on the reverse.

MS-66 or so. Lovely coin.
Remember, what the Dormouse said.

Some apparent hairlining in front of face and on cheek could hold this back, so I'll say 65. Very impressive and congrats.

65 Sweet coin!

**EDIT** - Is that a scratch going across her thigh on the reverse?

Wow! Looks fantastic.

MS-65 sounds good to me. Maybe MS-66.

Technical Grade 65. Eye Appeal 8/10.

Wonderful photos, too.

Could we have a candid, well-lit shot of the left obverse field and cheek, please. I don't, as yet, share everyone else's ardor.

What a difference a different monitor makes.

I can now see what I thought was a possible scratch isn't, and I see why coinfrog requested the additional photo.

It's in some type of holder, too. Strike looks strong, but I'll drop to 64.

At least 65, I'll say MS-66.

Unusually strong strike, partially effaced clash marks ; I'd say began life as a prooflike but has been impaired by cleaning.

I cannot make out the surfaces in the dark photos ... assuming original surfaces MS65 or so. Definitely authentic.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

The minor hits still give this a 65. Think how scruffy many Morgan's are at 65. If you applied the same determinants on this quarter it's very easy to justify 65.

65 isn't perfect. Neither is 66 or 67.

That's why there is a scale.

I agree with Coinfrog, and for the same reasons.
65.
