Is that a fingerprint on the lower right reverse?

I think it is John.

MS64RD aside from the distracting carbon spots and fingerprint it has generally pleasing eye appeal and luster. A nice example.

A couple of small black spots on obverse . I'm concerned about those marks from his upper lip to top of jaw . One looks to be a cut the other not so sure . I too see a finger print on bottom of reverse .
The more I look at this coin the more marks I see from top of hair down to chin . MS-63RD

i think it makes it over the line at MS64RD. although there are minor scratches and dark spots its not enough for me to put it in the 63 grade

Very nice coin. I'm thinking MS63+. Certainly not chopped liver.

Agree, spotting holds this to 63.

No, sorry, that fingerprint is there permanently I'm afraid.

While overall this coin looks nice, to me it appears to be lightly cleaned perhaps? Lots of little scratches on the obverse and I see that fingerprint all over the reverse the more I look at it. I'm struggling to get to MS63. Maybe it's just me.

Great coin!

64 RB. TPG's are very tough in giving out RED grades on copper for the last several years.

Thanks for sharing!
