I would like to hear some thoughts on where this cent could grade. Luster is great, the coin is from an obw roll. Thanks!

I'm seeing two different .coins--given the images posted. The reverses are different--one shows somewhat soft left wheat, the other is sharp. Also, a 'scratch' appears just below and between ..BUS and UNU... on the second reverse pic shown, but not the first.

It is the same coin, I just used different lighting. Look at the T in cent and you will see the same small spot on the right side of the T.

The lighting I used on the first 2 photos I will probably never try again.

With that, I'm good with MS65--a strong 65.

The second set of pictures is much better, I can see the luster. No major hits, nice fields but some minor ticks that hurt the grade a little, close to 66.

65RD

my first though was also two different coins. lighting can make a huge difference.

nice coin. a few minor marks on both sides. nice clean shoulder (difficult to find) I looked at several PCGS and NGC graded ones and this one is every bit as good as those graded MS66RD

MS-65RD is my guess.
