I wonder how many times graders at the TPG's see attributable coins and say...oh well...they didn't ask or pay?
Great pick!

TPGs will not voluntarily attribute varieties unless it has been requested and paid for in advance, but there have been occasions where it's been a major new discovery and the TPG has notified the owner.

Thanks Willburton! I think the seller was Ari_coins. I included the original listing with the photos. Macvanderstein was the seller you got the MS64 example from right?

Yea ch. He sells a lot of varieties. The reason I say that is your con has the same strike through or die damage that batts and mine have. It may be a new die state.

I honestly think my coin is a 66 as well but I think they saw the area around LIBERTY and dropped it two grades

It's interesting how a lot of the higher graded FS-101s exhibit the same markers. Your coin does look to be a higher grade than the slab says. It is possible the flaws lowered the grade, but In any case, you own a beautiful example!

Huge Congrats on the cherry pick !
Something must have been struck to the die for a while to give these coins such similar strike throughs. My raw example has similar die stage die scratches but none of the strike throughs.

Thanks stoneman227! Something really had to be stuck to the die to produce this many similar strikes, your right. The areas on the reverse that look like scuff marks/damage are actually some more strike throughs. That's a fine example you got there! The die scratches are very prominent on most examples graded AU and up. Most of the FS-101s I've seen have them.
