What do you guys think? These images do not do this coin justice.

MS 67 for sure if this were a Wheat cent but I think the more recent ones are graded stricter. Made that experience with some SMS coins from the sixties. So this could be as high as 66+ I think.

Why do you guys think it would only grade a 66? This coin has much less marks than every MS67 I've looked at. The fields are 100% clean aside from a microscopic nick above EPU.

I'd say MS-67. The coin is only showing very small nicks on both sides. It's barely noticeable.

I think yours might be nicer than mine....and I have a LOT of effort into finding mine. The luster on mine is off the charts and no gas bubbles.

Yours looks very nice! I was surprised when I found mine to with no gas bubbles. I'm not sure how my coin shop is getting them, because they mainly just deal with bullion, but Ive been finding loads of super high grade modern coins there.

Both are superb, but I think CherryPicker's wins by a nose.

Just got the grade back, PCGS MS68 Gold Shield. This shows that there's a lot to be found in dealers modern coin albums. I think I got this one for 25c, now I can probably sell it on eBay for around $200

Wonderful coin! MS-66RD possibly 67RD
Eye appeal 9/10
Note the tiny spots on the left hand side of the obverse

I just said it graded MS68, and that spot did not effect the grade.
