I compare all to PCGS and it looks better, but thank you.

Typical obverse areas of strike weakness. Hard to read the fields and luster, too washed out. The reverse is very nice and brings the grade up.

66RD

See this thread and how the pictures greatly improved with just some lighting changes.

Your lighting and white balance are off. This is the color and lighting to shoot for:

MS64-RD here. Lots of sharp features but I'm not sure about the bow tie and how clean the field is. Probably my eyes more than the photos, but I like to check those things. I also saw the Variety Vista lists some varieties, but they seem to be obvious to the naked eye and don't see them here -- but I don't have the coin in hand.

Stay well,

Don't hurt me but I'm hopeful some day the TPGs give "full steps" designation on the Lincoln Memorial building on reverse. If you look at the reverse on your LMC, the steps are all smushed together. I have several like that I sent in to PCGS. Didn't appear to hurt the grade they gave me. Just saying I enjoy seeing an LMC with steps clearly defined.

I've been saying that for over a decade. In my personal collection, full steps are very important to me. One of the most difficult coins to find with FS is the 2006 Lincoln.
