Thanks in advance for your help in grading this. Found roll hunting this week. It's been awhile since I submitted anything or been online. To me,in person, this has a sheen which looks like it's been cleaned? (Pics do not show this)

That's a beauty. Color seems OK to me. I'll say AU-58BN. Close to mint state.

I'd call this a nice brown AU-58, but not something I would have sent for grading. Hope I'm wrong, good luck!

Does appear to have been 'gently' cleaned at some point in the past. I'll go with AU52+. Nice example.

I don't see any evidence of cleaning, but I see a coin worth about $60.

Nice coin good pictures!

BTW: Does that look like some original mint luster on your coin in hand?

That about where I was AU55+... wondering if it hit MS. ( I also wrote next to it on list ~$60 )I looked again and could be mint luster. Reverse shows even a little, very little, original red. I've added pics... also I added pic of VDB area... ? Not showing? Maybe mint polished off?

I still think grading is a bad bet, not sure why you sent it in if you basically agreed with AU to start with.

Coinfrog - I think he was referring to submitting a Coin for Grading on here, not TPG. But, I could be wrong though.

Beautiful Coin.

There was no VDB on 1915 Lincoln's. It looks AU+ with a good strike.

AU-53 ; Odd that this coin was found CRH . But bear in mind that's where it was , mixed up and bouncing around who knows where . Nice find .
