Id say MS-66/67 in that range.

I think 67 is possible. Thinking this might be a proof?

I will say it is not a proof.

That's the first 1882 I've seen with the die break returning to the rim through the date. Maybe an RCD?

I've never seen an MS-67 1882 before, but this one sure looks like it could be one of those great white whales. PCGS seems to have a ceiling at MS-66 on Shields, so I have to say they would call this one MS-66. Again, IMHO, it's a full step better than that.

Fantastic coin, no matter what the slab says. Yours or soon to be?

No displacement of the die, so at the time of striking just a die break.

66+
I looked at some MS67's and I like this one better, but the luster may have kept it out of a 67 holder.

MS65 the tiny little planchet flaws hold it back for me, though they certainly are not too distracting. Even it was a perfect planchet I don't think there is enough luster to break into the 67 territory.

My 2 cents and I'm sticking with it.

I don't know enough about this series, so only guessing is a MS-65+.

Surely not less than 66.

1 day left! Also, I just got it in hand, so some "in hand shots". The obverse has much better luster than the reverse, but it's not bad. The reverse is lightly toned which slightly inhibits the luster.
