Almost no contact marks. I'll go for the high grade at MS-68. The cheek is a bit dark, so I assume that toning and won't affect the grade. Decent eye appeal for the most part.

I kinda want to put this at a MS-66 since those chatter marks on obverse are a bit more prominent than I feel a 68 should warrant.
You also have some nice clash marks going there on the obverse and reverse.

Remarkably clean cheek and surfaces (except the small planchet defect through IGWT). Not the strongest strike, and the toning may be masking the luster. I'll say MS-66 despite the subdued luster. Also, it looks like a VAM-24 (R-5).

Strike weakness and less than attractive toning on the reverse will hold this back from a 68. If the luster is nicer in hand, which I suspect it is, I can see a 67. Otherwise 66+.

I'll say strong 66. These areas, the spear through D in GOD and the chip int he eagles chest in the reverse are small nits.

Lack of luster keeps it to MS66, IMO

Ahhh, 1896, the land of 10,000 one-sided toners. Great coin, minimal contact marks, fantastic obverse eye appeal. Add me to the MS-66 camp.

the 96(P) should be sharp and bold. slight weakness around ear and definitely weak breast. luster looks completely gone on cheek area however it could be toning or light hiding here. although I'm late to the party here but I would not put this in a MS66 slab or higher. I think MS65 is generous.

please wait at least 24hrs, 48hrs is better before posting grades. thanks

Ouch on my part. I can see where they got the 65 grade. If it was purchased for 65 price, that is a good deal.
