Hey guys! Haven't been around all that much lately, so I thought I'd post this one just to get back among y'all. It came to me graded and entombed in a slab from IGC. I'll put up a scan of the slab in a few days - in the meantime, post your opinions as to what you think the grade of this coin is. Enjoy.

Ralph

Rest in Peace

I own a VF-30 one that is PCGS graded. This looks exactly like it so I'll say VF-30 nice coin!

Guys, this is a scan of the slab - a mite fuzzy, but still showing well enough to see the assigned grade.

VF-30 compares well with an 1885cc that I have that is NGC slabbed.

Guys, after I freed it from it's little plastic prison, and comparing it with the pictures and description in Making The Grade Vol II, I believed it was closer to VF-30 than VF-35, and that was the main reason for posting it - see if others thought the same as me. Apparently you do because the majority of you who responded agree with VF-30. Thank you for your responses.

Hi Ralph,
Welcome back. I also think the coin is a tad overgraded at VF-35; I agree with a VF-30 consensus. Grading services tend to give CC Morgans a positive grade bump in general and that seems to be the case here. Nothing drastic, just a notch higher than a common date would likely be awarded.
