tried to capture the surfaces best I could, coin is very prooflike in hand, luster is very satiny.

Candidate for ms67FS?

Came directly from a mint cello as you see it, so I know it hasn't been tampered with, reverse has a bit more frost to the luster, obverse is very Prooflike.

Strong MS66. Seeing a number of light contact marks. Nice coin.

Great looking coin! I think the reverse will hold it to MS66 as well! Depends how tough they want to be, but should get FS.

They must exist somewhere on earth, but I can't remember ever seeing a 1980s Denver Jeff graded MS-67FS. For that matter, MS-66FS is darned scarce, but at least I've see a couple.

I wonder if 67FS is just a bridge too far for the TPGs.

Your coin is a beauty. I just don't think it's possible to persuade a TPG to go 67FS.

I agree, TPG are weird, there are 3 graded ms67fs by PCGS, of which when I compare to the Trueviews they have, mine appears to have less hits, one of theirs even looks to have an abrasion below monticello, so who knows. I feel like I'd be dumb to not at least send it in for their "opinion".

Don't you agree?

The most recent eBay sale for a 1987D graded MS66FS by PCGS sold for $9.50. I think yours is a beauty, but only you can decide if getting it graded is worth it.

The hit above Jefferson's eyebrow and the other light contact marks holds this coin back from MS-67. I'm also at MS-66FS. Nice find!

I smiled when I seen this nickel. Is that a small nick above the eyebrow? If it is, still the overall beauty is there. For sure it would fit in a registry set.
