Here is a 1960 D Franklin I am considering purchasing for the hubby. What are your opinions on grade and if it qualifies as FBL? These are the seller's pictures.

Thanks!

No fair! I am looking for honest opinions

OK, spoiler - it does have a FBL designation and I am not sure that I agree.

MS65 Not sure about FBL a bit too much glare to tell. But I'd say a shot

MS 62 (Obverse has some dings) Not FBL. Agree hard to see bottom row.

I'd say MS-63 but no Full Bell Lines. I thought to be FBL it couldn't have any marks cutting through the lines. Is that correct?

should not have a FBL designation, not that attractive of a coin either.

I do not think I will be getting this one. I feel it is in the MS 63 range and was considering bidding MS 63 FBL $. I am a little rusty with grading so I appreciate your opinions, which line up with mine: pass due to questionable FBL.

Westcoin - this is the type of my toning my hubby likes. Not going to argue with the man who has managed to put up with me!

Another classic case of buy the coin not the holder . IMHO
not MS-65 and not FBL . Obverse looks more like an MS-62 .
I guarantee your husband won't like this coin .

I like PCGS very much for some things but not for strike quality designations. I don't think it's a 'boo-boo'. I learned that lesson the hard way while building a full steps nickel set.
