This is one of a hundred reasons it's so hard to grade for me. The coin in the picture is nothing special in hand. I think the picture made it look better. I tried to adjust the lighting as best I could. I rotated the reverse 90 degrees took picture then corrected. If you graded from the picture, I think you would say 66 maybe not

Oh! by the way the brown is actually refection because the coin is shiny (I don't know the right word?)

Confused - you're saying this is a Trueview pic?

Sorry, it's a picture I took 30 minutes ago. The coin seems nice to me, But I have looked at so many coins the last two weeks my head is spinning. I will have to take a break because every coin is a 67 or every Coin is a dud

I always appreciate your responses!

On their own merit, the two original pics are too dense, bright and soft to see surface details clearly.

Totally agree, It depends on the time of day (don't laugh)

Early morning it seems that I can adjust the lighting. I never realized that when trying to learn how to accurately grade a coin that photography is just as important. Heck, so are computer skills. This is why it takes years to learn this stuff, I guess

Looks around 66RD.

Hopefully you have joined ha.com. There you will find MANY pictures to look at, far more than PCGS has. Warning, if you're geeking out on coins, it's easy to lose a couple of hours. I have MEGA hours on ha.com, the pictures are very good.
