Fresh out of the mailbox for guess on this one. It is in an OGH and has a CAC Sticker (maybe the extra info will help)

Curious for under grade or over grade thoughts after reveal.

On further inspection, the light scuff/scratch marks on the bottom right obverse are on the case. Some of the other ones too.

Thanks, I thought it was nice for the price.

I see odd toning on obverse, not many hits or ticks. Reverse seems to be struck nicely..Overall 65/65+ ,eye appeal 8/10 (channeling moxking)
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

Pics showing more light on the obverse fields would be helpful. Peering through, I'll say MS-63 with low confidence factor.

I say MS65. Better lighting would help.

typical sharp strike for the year. the initial photos are showing PL surfaces but the second set is not. I'm going with the second set.

eye appeal is above average so I can see why it beaned.

MS65 green bean

I'm in at MS64 maybe even a plus I think it just falls short of 65. A 64 could easily get a green bean sticker from CAC.

Nice coin. The grading questions are what it would snag in a rattler, and what it would snag today. This coin may be on both sides of the fence because of that.

There are a few dings on the chin and a bruise on the cheek, a small ding on the nose, a couple minor contacts in the hair above the ear, and light scuffs on the cap. Not quite the full Sal Maglie treatment, but at least a hard shave from the barber. The reverse is fantastic, with just a light contact on the eagle's breast and a couple minor contacts on the peripheral lettering.

IMHO, in OGH days, the obverse would be MS-63, and the reverse MS-65, for a net MS-64. Today, the obverse is a solid MS-64+, the reverse is MS-66, for MS-65/65+. No wonder the bean factory liked it.

Great coin. Undergraded.
