Just got this from NGC. I posted this here YEARS ago and just had it graded. Can you guess what NGC graded the coin?

MS-64. Some wear on the cheek I think. (Maybe 65)
1. I'm no expert but I'll give my two cents.

2.My favorite coin so far: 1913 Buffalo nickel matte proof type II reverse

I don't feel comfortable grading with these pics, but I will throw out a conservative MS-64.

There's no way FBL can be determined from the reverse pic.

I expect a 64 given the sparkle, but to be honest, the obverse is scuffed in both fields - this is hardly a gem.

Thanks for all the replies! This coin was my wife's first buy. She spotted it on ebay and the luster was so strong she had to buy it. She paid $60 and NGC Price Guide list it at $185 at this grade. Nice score for Akojen, a long time CCF member, but has never a poster, and her last visit was around 2014. She's more of an "Over My Shoulder" forum reader.
