Thoughts? Looking for opinions on eye appeal and grade. I recently sold most of my coin and knife collection for a few real big ones that I like. Will need a break from buying for a while after this.

Not sure what you paid, but it's a great coin and very hard to get CAC on high end grades like that

Fantastic coin. Wish I had one like that...

IMO, super eye appeal and accurate grade.

Impossible to photo what that truly looks like in hand but appreciate you trying. Having seen a few (more halves than quarters) in that eschalon with that kind of toning, you have quite a stunner there.

TrueView pics have always seemed kind of cartoonish for lack of a better word.

Gorgeous piece that appears to be all of a 67+. With only 4 finer you wonder if it might make 68 someday?

Congrats on a stunning coin! Definitely challenging to photograph a beautifully toned proof in a slab...

I get what you're saying, but it was really just a choice to try and show the color. Phil is actually really easy to work with and any time a picture doesn't seem right does his best to make it right.

He can be contacted directly and I do have a lot of respect for how he tries to make it right with people with a grievance.

It is a beautiful coin. Having said that there appears to be a fingerprint behind liberty's cap and some disturbance in the color/toning in the right obverse field. I still think it deserves it's holdered grade. Eye appeal is off the charts.

Not really sure why this was moved to grading? The grade was revealed with the first post but more looking to see if people agree and have any comments as I like all opinions, but I don't think as many people will see it here.

Pop 6 with only 4 finer, gorgeous toning, deep clear mirrors and cac approved?
That coin is an absolute monster in my books.

Seriously? The true-view is almost a perfect match to the third obverse image provided by the op.

That is quite the stunning coin! I'm sure it was worth every penny, even if it means taking a break from buying for a while!
