I'm studying coin grading I just started with In the hour I have my 1943 steel Wheat penny I'm trying to grade it still has good high points the wheat stocks are quite visible and Lincoln's jawl and cheek bone are pronounced so is his hair lines..... I don't thank it's MS it has been circulated but not for very long it has no rust spots its Zink coating is still all there my best guess as of right now is around AU-50ish to XF-45...... I made my own coin sleeve so a pick was a little hard with lighting angels but I did my best..... What do y'all thank it's grade is

1st,make sure to flatten those staples.2nd,always remove coins from 2x2 holder before taking photos.3rd,research here https://www.PCGS.com/photograde/ 4th,a few too many photos.4 pics per post to start with,full coin obverse full coin reverse and one or two close ups where and when needed.If we need more pics we will ask for them.

I used PCGS as a coin grading reference that's where I got the idea of XF-45 to AU-50 if need be I can remove the coin from it's sleeve and take the proper pictures so it's better seen just ask and I shall do so if y'all can grade it with what you see that's also great.... I appreciate the tips John1 thanks I shall use these tips when I'm posting my next coin to be graded

Third pic shows virtually full ear and hair definition, so I'll say AU-55 sharpness.

New photos move me to XF45. Nice hole filler until something better comes along.

I am not great at grading, that said 40-45 but lacks eye appeal.

1943's wear differently from normal copper wheat cents. This coin is highly worn as evident in the rims and fields.

VF-30 (nearly 25)
