Not worth grading. With gold prices where they are this is a candidate for the melt bucket.

The 10% copper in the alloy has been enough to have this coin be affected by fingerprinting.

Not all bad news.
That fingerprint provides a unique identification for this coin ONLY.

Some light digs and scratches but no wear, good luster.
MS-62, comments.

Were it not for the large obverse fingerprint it might go 63. MS62 as-is and not worth grading IMO.

I'm at 62 tops, basically a melt coin.

To me this one is far nicer than an average MS $10 Lib bullion coin. I would be temped to pay the price to get it certified.

Wow, hard to believe that coin got a 65+, although it certainly has a super strike, few bag marks, and much nice luster than the original pics showed. Congrats!

Congratulations but color me amazed.

The TruView image looks far better than the other images but it still doesn't appear 65+. The coin must be incredible in-hand which is not showing even in the TruView.

Looking back, I can't imagine why I graded this a 62 even based on the original pics.

Congrats!

This is a good example of "buy the coin not the holder"
I am not good at grading,but I can not see how it grades that high with a fingerprint and the damage/wear areas on the face and neck

With the marks on the face and the crude on the back way over graded. This is MS 62 at the BEST. No worries a lot of people will jump on the grade. I would pay melt for this coin.

And this coin is details with environmental damage but NGC says it grades straight. TPG's make mistakes all the time.
