What do you think?

Another crappy issue, most look like they went through a blender. A nice upgrade for me thanks to gp. My old one was a 62/63.

I'm at 64 on this, I don't know how much the rim hits would deduct from the grade.

Hey BadThad, whenever you see scratches on lower left coat and again on reverse around "STA" in STATES are those usually die clash marks?

NO, weak strike. Those are areas that require the most metal to fill the dies. The planchet imperfections don't get smoothed out because the dies never fully filled. I like to call those little ticks in the high points "planchet marks" - remnants of what was on the planchet before being struck.

Info on die clashes - something completely different!

In this overlay picture for wheats, you can see why the typically weak areas are weak. I can't find my memorial overlay. :( Think about two dies coming together just like this:

@BadThad, thanks for that explanation on weak areas. I never really thought about it like that, but it makes sense. Useful for all coins and not just cents.

This coin has blazing cartwheel luster and great eye appeal, I graded it 66RD.
