Picked this off eBay as a BIN for $21 total. As a 65RD I thought $21 is fairly low for one of these. Not an early stage but a nice top 100 variety and another I didn't have in my collection yet so I'm happy to add it.

In hand it is a gem red but it is tough to capture that color with my photography setup. Will try to upgrade the setup sometime this year. How'd I do? Thanks!

Nice pick-up.
if you're happy with it that is good - really doesn't matter what others think.

I like those ANACS holders because you can see the print when they are stacked in a box.

Thanks CentStation! Glad to have it for as low a price as I got it. Most of the raw ones I see on eBay are asking $35+ in mint state. Last 65RD I saw sell was slabbed PCGS and went for $184.

Yeah, hunt down those ANACS holders. Things can sell for far less in ANACS yet still are slabbed and graded. Lower resale value as-is, but you get great coins for a lot less.

True that. ANACS usually does a fair job of grading as well.
