I picked this up at my local coin club auction.
I paid top dollar I'm sure at $55.00
I enjoy the toning and the die cracks...I had to have it.
Its a very pretty coin in hand.

What are your thoughts on Grade?
There is a rim hit on the Rev about 4 O'clock

Thanks for looking
Dan

Beautiful color and good strike. The coin is weakly struck in the typical areas, the first two stars, the hair above the eye, its corresponding site on the reverse, at the corn cob to the left of the wreath.

The main problem is that the coin appears to be pitted in various areas in the face. UNC details corrosion.

Here is another pic.
That first one is not the best of the cheek area.
Under my 10x the texture on the cheek is pretty uniform across the whole head.

Taking pictures is killer hard.

The first Obv pic shows the field pretty well, But I see what your saying about pits from that pic.
But it's not there in hand. I have to say no corrosion.

My lighting is at a angle and makes nothing look like something.
Hopefully this second cheek pic clears the air.

How does a picture photograph pitting that isn't there?

Agree with NS's assessment as usual. Very pretty coin otherwise

Rusted, heavily polished die? MS-63 straight.

a beautiful coin...

However, if someone could assist me with the process of more efficiently differentiating between whizzing and die scratching on the obverse from 6 to 12 o'clock, that would better assist me to decide if this coin is a 'details' grade or not.

As I understand it, whizzing you would see scratches on the whole surface of the coin. Where die scratches are usually in the field and caused from sanding the die. The field being the highest point on the die, thus has the scratches and not the detail.

The scratches on this coin in the first picture are only in the field and do not appear on the head of Liberty.
My guess is die scratches.

I agree with this in concept, however, if one zooms in on the most recent close-up picture near the cheek, very slight remnants of what appears to be old whizzing striations are being obscured by a more recent corrosive activity. These marks also appear to be somewhat parallel to those in the field.

This is not a whizzed coin. The pitting looks like it's from a rusty die.
