Thoughts on eye appeal and grade. Overall opinions welcome.

I'm at MS-64. Looking at this again I think I'll bump to MS-65.

And given your previous posts, I'll say CAC as well

I have no idea personally. I am not well versed enough to be able to give an estimate, but I just wanted to say what a beautiful coin you have.

Sure looks nice I'm going with MS65 though that little scratch on the reverse worries me, coming out of the back of the eagles head on the flat high point. Probably not bad enough to make a details grade, maybe just the way the lighting is catching it in the photo?

The luster appears subdued in these images and the color is not the greatest either. Assuming it's MS then the reverse strike is a tad weak. As many have mentioned the contact marks are minimal and that's half the grade.

I grade the eye appeal as average and guess it's a MS63.

The strike is actually fantastic.never had any indian graded as high as this.
The 1908 looks weak on the reverse but thats how they were minted. Its not wear. They fixed this with the 1909.

You guys are getting good ....

The reveal: PCGS ms65+ with green cac

Cant wait to get it in hand in some days

Wow nice one Jon I wouldn't expect a + on this coin though. Nice that you got it and the bean, it all adds to value when it's time to sell.

I have to agree with BH1964 at MS63 or MS62 if just going by the photos. Facial features on human and bird are quite strong as high points, but, for me, letter does seem too crisp and field is too dull to go higher. I would like to see in real light.

Stay well,
