Here's my latest purchase. It's raw with fantastic luster. It shows heavy clash on both obverse and reverse, as most nickel III¢ coins do. It has one blemish on the very outside of the rim at about 9:00 o'clock. I changed the position of the coin to show the luster. Also, it's kind of hard to see in this photo, but I haven't seen Longacre Doubling this strong before.



What do you think it will grade? How much do you think the blemish will count against the coin? How much would you have paid for this coin?

MS65 or better I'd think, the clash should not affect the TPGs grading of it. Looks like it's dripping with luster too beautiful coin Yokozuna!

The 65 is nearly impossible to find WITHOUT significant clash and or die cracks.

The example exhibits what might be considered circulation on the III, but it is not. It's typical strike.

Open field areas, while small, still have no rub, indicating MS.

MS-64 or better. Better cannot be determined because of the white out areas. Eye Appeal 7/10.

I have an 1888 in MS-65 and yours is close to the same look.
Yours is at least a -64 and possibly a -65.
Clashed dies should not be much of an influence on the grade.
Describe it as if there were no picture.
