*** Edited by Staff to Add Denomination to Title. It's very important to have in the title. ***

To help me please compare coins already ms 67 on the PCGS website. This coin can get an acetone and verdicare bath to improve the luster. Can you find more than 3 points in deduction? Point them out to me please.

it's close, 66 or 67, late die state hurts eye appeal

with nick10.
There's hit on his Jacket low towards the rim. Column 9 took a hit. The base of column 8 took a hit. There's discoloration at the S in STATES that goes to the dot of UNUM.
I think the biggest difference between yours and the PCGS example is the die strike stage...their's being an EDS.
Still a beauty...but I don't think he'll make 67

I'm with a strong MS66--nice example. Agree with smat45--plus a few minor rim tics on both sides, and what looks like a small ding on the lower portion of the mint mark (first photo), and a hit on Abe's lapel (front portion near the rim).

not easy to find a 67 LMC. this one looks like it could be one. glare is in issue in assessing the surfaces entirely but i'll call it 67RD

the issue that now comes into play would PCGS (if you send it there) give it the grade it deserves. we know how they protect the top of the heap coins. they only have graded 14 at 67 and one at 68

its worth a shot but due to their snobbish behavior regarding those grades don't be surprised if it came back 66RD and the difference in value between that and 67 is huge
