Going to need much better pics. It looks like a proof, which should have FS.

Photos here and posted elsewhere continue to look distorted, in this instance 'squeezed'. Hoping for better photos overall. With all that, the coin appears to be proof, which would show better defined steps.

Looks like a Full Step Proof to me, as to grading as others have said much sharper, clear straight on full coin (each side) would be needed. But as the 1960's proof nickels often came well struck with full steps I'd say it's a nicer one. Now the real tough part is trying to find a business strike with steps that well defined in the 1960's that could net you the price of a new car easily in some cases, but they are as rare as all get out.

Oh and to the best little coin collectors site around.

Josh, Nice coin! Are you taking these pics with a digital microscope? I had the same problem with distorted images when I first used mine and it was because I had changed the resolution from the menu from 1.3mp to 10mp. Try setting the scope back to the default at 1.3mp and the images will remain in perspective.
