$36. I think I stole this one, looks quite clean especially for a booker. The only think that concerns me is the nick above the eyebrow. Nickelsearcher, where ya at?

I agree, the fields of the coin do appear quite clean.

Is the darker color seen on BTW's chin/jaw line and shirt collar present on the coin or is it an artifact of the lighting used for your image? If it's present on the coin, it could indicate metal loss/wear which would drop the coin to AU vs. MS.

Sorry, these are seller's photos, but based off the light direction i"m inclined to believe it's just a shadow. I will update this post with my own in hand pics when I receive it!

Fields are very nice with great luster. There appears to be a long vertical contact mark on the lower cheek, and perhaps some uneven toning on the reverse, but it will be easier to assess when you have it in hand. Nice looking coin!

I'll say MS-65, good shot at 66.

I'd concur with the above and hope to get it at the price of an AU simply for bragging rights. A solid example.

Pretty disappointed with this one. Obverse especially was very poorly represented in the photos.

I think "stole" is a little much for the first and the second is bullion value.

I'm pretty sure this isn't the same coin that was shown in the seller's photos. I can't find any marks that match up.

Zurie, you're correct, as soon as I sent the return request he told me he sent the wrong coin, here is the correct coin in hand. still a bit disappointed, but oh well. The two long parallel scratches on the cheek were not at all evident in the photos. Nontheless, a decent coin for the money IMO.

Much better! I wonder if he was trying to pawn off the other one on you in hopes you wouldn't notice or complain? Anyway, other than those minor scratches, not a bad looking coin.

It's possible, but he was extremely apologetic so I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.
