MS-65. Eye Appeal 7/10.

Typical light/medium strike.

Amending my reply because there are now two coins shown - originally just #2 was shown. First is beautiful, I'd say 66. Spotting holds the second one to 65 tops. Neither are proofs.

Neither look like proofs. Both might make MS-65.

THese are so hard to tell either could be Matte Proofs, they both are very high grade, #2 has an old staple scratch on the reverse across the buffalo's shoulder.

#1 - 66 PR or MS? I can't tell I'm 70-20% it's proof.
#2 - 67 PR or MS I'm leaning towards PR on this one. Hope it doesn't details due to that scratch.

I compared these 2 coins to a bunch of Heritage high res photos and can't come to a consensus. Tough call and it will be interesting to see what the grading company thinks.

Looking forward to the results. Thanks for sharing this one, a tough lesson. Can anyone share any Proof die diagnostics? Maybe a polish mark or die gouge? I couldn't find anything in my looking.

Buffalo proofs have sharp edges. These do not.

I wondered why I liked your second pictures better

I'd agree with those saying "not" proof. But they are some of the sharpest struke Buffalos I've seen. Super coins.
