Just came across this. I've been looking for one for a long time. I know it's not a stunner. Just want opinions on grade and any other thoughts. My untrained eye would say AU 55-58. Thanks for any insight. Pics are crap, it is what it is

I think AU-55 is about right.

AU52 for me, given the photos posted (and the coin's appearance in the lighting used).

Looks like an RDV-006! AMAZING FIND, congrats! I have never found one and I have looked very hard.

Your pictures aren't bad, I think they're bringing out every defect though. I bet it's nicer than your pictures show.

AU-55

Thanks for your input. @ BadThad, How do you take your pics. I've seen a few and they look great. I saw a 1966 1c I think, you posted. I have 1 similar but my pics look horrible. It's difficult to get opinion knowing the photos are garbage. Could you let me know your method of photography.

Cheap and simple.

Canon SD700IS 6MP ($20-30 on ebay)

This lamp from Amazon ($40):

And PaintShop Pro 7 and a white piece of copy paper. I perform NO POST PROCESSING except to resize down for web use (to ~1000x1000 pixels) . I free hand all my pictures generally at 3.4x optical zoom.
