What's the luster like on this one? From the pics it looks very flat.
This ones throwing me. I want to say AU-58, but not seeing a lot of contact marks, just enough rub on the high points to warrant an AU. But for $40.... that's low UNC FB pricing .

Still waiting on that 1915 Buff

The luster is actually pretty solid on this coin, not the brightest I've ever seen but i'd say mid range, which may be due to the toning.

Still too lazy to send off the 1915 buff...with the way the post office has been I've been semi afraid to mail much right now.

AU-58 FSB , looks like an old cleaning and since retoned .
Reverse has a lot of hair line scratches associated with a rough cleaning .

I'm at AU something. Cannot tell if the top band is completely split. No FSB.

AU55 maybe 58. TPG's only look at center band for FB/FSB designation. I want all three bands. based on TPG I think they would give it a FB designation not FSB as the center band appears to be a little too flat

1923 Philly has large mintage, and most can be found in MS grades.

This one AU-55 FSB.

Nope, didn't send it off. Although the buffs have been sitting in chicago via usps for the last 5 days...registered mail, ugh.
