I love putting out these grading challenges! What do you think PCGS graded this coin?

Can you show us sharper images, please. These are a bit soft.

It's a very old PCGS holder and my phone camera isn't too good. That's the best I can do so I'll give you a hint: it's better than MS 65 but not as good as a 69.

The obverse pic is pretty blurry...the reverse is pretty good.
Based on your hint...
I'm at MS67

I appreciate the fact you post photos, but I am curious are you holding your phone when taking the photo or do you have it setting on something to be more stable?
I'll say MS66 since photo quality is not that sharp.

I agree, pics are soft...if you'll brace your phone or camera then crop the photos your pictures should improve.

the difference between 66 and 68 is so ever slight based mainly on minor abrasions and marks. the photos presented a too small and a little too blurry to distinguish those minor marks. the coin appears to be well struck with full feather separation. the cheek appears to be rounded though the hair above the braid is little flat. the luster appears to be unbroken across all devices. on the reverse the horn is full and looks rounded, the fur on the head and back appear to be nicely struck up. the tail looks fully split but a little hard to tell as its a little blurry. there does not appear to be any of those contact marks typically seen on the front leg and body. the hocks look fully defined as well and the luster appears to be unbroken.

i have it MS66 without better photos. imo it may make MS67. its a nice coin

Sorry about the blurry photo. I'll be using a real camera from now on. I think I'll just go ahead and reveal the grade. I know you're supposed to wait 48 hours, but everyone is so close that it's kind of a waste of time. PCGS graded this coin MS-66.

should still wait 48hrs if possible even if folks are chiming in with a close grade. this gives everyone to express their opinion and for newbies they can read comments that may help hone their grading skills.

i think your blurry photo may be from phone movement. try stabilizing the phone between two books and use the timer to take the photo

In any event, 65 doesn't surprise me. A number of obverse field marks show even in this soft pic.

Yeah, it was probably from phone movement. I'm used to taking Morgan dollar photos so this smaller coin was kind of newer thing for me. I had a hard time getting it to focus, thus the blurriness. Rest assured, I will wait 48 hours from now on. In fact, I think one of my Morgan dollar photos is almost due for a grade reveal.

Depending on your phone and type of ear buds you use you may be able to take a pict using a pair of wired ear buds to eliminate camera shake.
