67+BN. Would not be surprised at a 68. Very minor nicks on the Jacket. While not a full strike. It is a veds, but as you can see on the reverse the spacing is not optimal. Personally I think it is a great coin. I just know that at the upper levels that they can get real picky when it comes to full strike.

Pics are not good enough to grade properly.
In order to grade above say 65 pics similar to PCGS standard would be needed.
At least 1500 x 1500

Have to admit it is gorgeous , but because I detect minute traces of dirt 0n the coin , I'm going out on the limb here and say it's AU-59 . Again real nice piece .

An obverse pic with more light on the surfaces would be helpful.

I don't have PCGS's imaging equipment, but this should be close!

Nice example. MS64 for me. Appears to be a hint of very light wear on obverse high points.

How is that possible ?

I'm not seeing any cartwheel spokes or other indications of luster, slight high point rub.

AU-58

I say 58 due to wear on high points.

I'm on the fence about this one. on one hand I'm seeing what looks like signs of circulation on the cheek, jaw and hairline and on the other hand I'm not seeing any surface marks on the rest of the coin or anything else that would point to circulation. AU58 or MS64BN

Well, based on thebpaper fibers that were on the coin when I scoped it initially, I assume it came from an album, high points have a blueish toning as well, I'd say the coin is on the more brown spectrum of RB in hand.

Rubbing on the high points, AU-58.
