This ones alot of fun like a blind date-it may or may not grade by first impressions. Have fun but don't limit yourself either way. Maybe a brown bean or maybe a lemon? You decide.

luvmyCAM, either way, you have a great specimen of the IHC. I find it a little hard to give a definite appraisal of the coin without magnification or lighting issues. Given that this coin is encapsulated at the time of photographing and without the afore mentioned limitations, I would take a stab at B maybe RB hard to tell under the circumstance and probably a 64+ maybe 65.

Either way, any collector would be very proud to add this beauty to their collection, Congratulations and thanks for showing it to us.

I like this one. MS 63 RB, could be RD if the dark shadows are from the slab.

AU-58 . Nice IHC , looks original . Either break it out for album or reslab , too many scratches on plastic .

I think it only rates BN.
Strike is a bit soft: look at the feathers.
I can see it making MS-64 BN.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

AU55 would be my guess from these images.

I know obverse counts more, but I get hung up on the reverse. Specifically the wear on the leaves just to the left of the shield. AU58.

Ubiquitius some say ineffable? everywhere and nowhere the MS60 coin. I love this grade. Tired dies on this one especially the obverse with smeared denticles and filled in feather tips. Reverse Sheild is a doozie dull as a butter knife. I like to show this to others with the grade covered half say AU58 the other MS63BN. Interestingly no one has graded it 60 or 61. The coin does have subdued luster both on obverse/reverse and bet if pics brought it out someone would have nailed it. Thanks for the comments.

I had it at AU58RB or MS62RB. it does look like it was dipped in the past with the dull areas on the fields of both sides however not enough to details the coin. I think it would have went higher than 61 if wasn't

I don't agree with the grade given (based on the pictures). I would have gone higher but I don't have the coin in hand. Once a coin is in a slab, I find it harder to grade than raw.
