Anyone have any thoughts on why this received only a F12 grade from PCGS? It did get a CAC green label which seems to be a no-brainer. Thanks in advanced!

Weakness in the date and overall eye appeal holds this coin back from a higher grade in my opinion. F-12 looks about right to me.

In almost all instances (not always), the TPGraders get it reasonably close to right, fair and reasonable.

I agree with westernsky.

I'm not a collector of these...but just going from PCGS photo-grade (not always the best examples).
Going from F-12 to F-15 there are such subtle differences.
As was mentioned...the Date is a little softer...the Shin looks flatter and wider...the Eagles wing does not display more detail closer to the body.
The only argument I could make for F-15 is the Rim on yours is nicer than the F-12 photo-grade comparison.
Still a desirable 1/4 in F-12!

F-12 seems spot-on to me as well. Nice coin!

I don't always side with CAC, but I'd agree and say a solid, good eye appeal F12 as well.
