I'm a sucker for these puppies. These are so plentiful in high grades that they'll never be worth a lot of money. Paid $29 net of shipping and 10% ebay bucks. Looks golden, but it doesn't seem to be a gold-plated or painted racketeer. Looks like it is just lighting or perhaps golden toning. More likely yellowish lighting. Thoughts on grade and problems? Thanks!

Nice 64. I'm still in need of one for my type set. I've been putting it off for a while even though I love it.

Given the right conditions, any copper nickel coin can tone to a very attractive rich golden color.

As such, all that I have seen with such nice toning have all been in very high condition.

I can understand why you can be a 'sucker' for such a nice coin.

Die cracks make this one more interesting.
Perhaps they had problems striking these, and type change conveniently coincided with solution to the die cracking problem, to produce a one year type.

I'm at MS63 softly struck because of late die state.

This one came in. It looks blazing white with full luster under normal light, but under an incandescent light it has a smooth golden glow. Further thoughts? Thanks!
