Hi,
This is my first US gold coin so I'm not comfortable putting a grade on it but I think around AU-55?
The egdenicks on the reverse donīt bother me that much but some of you might detail it.

Really hard to get a good picture of this tiny thing but hopefully they are good enough for you to give me your opinion.

Will be sent to a TPG for grading and a photograph.

Looks like a pretty nice coin and I don't think the nicks on the rim will cause a details grade. Hard to see luster in these images but I don't see any wear. It could grade MS-62.

Certainly no less than AU-58.

was this a scan? if so, it may not be showing the actual fields and may not be as grainy as the photos show. better photos without overhead light may help give a better assessment. I thinks its MS. depending on the surfaces anywhere between MS62 and MS64. the rims are a non-issue in my mind

The photos are taken with my cellphone. I tried different light setup but of all pictures these were the the ones that came out sharpest.

The Trueview fee will be money well spent

Here are some new photos. As you can see I wasnīt able to hold the camera steady enough to get the photos fully sharp but they show the coin in a different lightsetting.

These are with daylight from a window as lightsource:




These are taken without a direct lightsource:




I have a question regarding TPG:
Is there any difference in NGC/PCGS regarding gold coin grading? Since Iīm inexperienced with gold coins I would rather have a propriate (conservative) grade on this coin than sending it in to get the highest grade as possible. Also, wich of PCGS/NGC brings the higher premium if the coin got the same grade from both TPG?

the last photos give a decent look at the surfaces. the rim nick on the reverse is a pretty good hit. not sure what affect this would have. the coin surfaces appear dull similar to a light cleaning. I still think the coin is MS and would put it in the MS63 area. it may grade straight but due to the overall look I would not pay MS63 money. it has a 50/50 chance of receiving a details designation
