Hi, I pulled this one out of a flip that has been sealed since 1974 and would appreciate feedback. The obverse has a gold toning on the right side that I've tried to capture. Still working on photo technique.
Very nice looking coin...good rims...minimal nicks and bag rash common on these...not sure about the milk spots on the obverse...from being in a holder too long? Could these milk spots "detail" a coin? Not sure? I think the reverse carries this one to MS65...if she straight grades. smat
the blue background you are using is casting indirect color onto the coin. always use a neutral color surface like gray or black.
not sure whats up the spotting. coins that have been dipped in a cleaning solution and not washed off correctly can cause these but I'm not sure if this is the case here. also something could have been splashed onto the coin that was not noticeable at the time and since this one has been stored for decades they are now visible as the toning progressed. I'm leaning more towards this scenario as the reverse does not display these and typically coins are stored obverse up which protected the reverse from toning. imo they will affect eye appeal although slightly and at worst details the coin for (ED) environmental damage
the 04(O) have average strikes. this one appears to be AVG+ for the year. I think its short of 65. MS64 for me due to the spotting
