Did my best on this and came up with a VF25
Images are scans. Not showing as sharp than in hand.
Liberty is all there and readable but not real sharp.
Sorry, had to crop the rev. to make the 99 file max. upload :) Rims are just fine.
Did a 600 d.p.i. scan on both sides but the rev. came out larger for some reason as far as file size. Jeesh.
Maybe we can get a 101 file size max. on here.

You do have your free Gallery, right? The Gallery is rather more generous with bitspace.

Did not know about the SS. S seems flat and a little mushy
but will look closer thanks.
Did not even know about the gallery Dave, Thanks.
I would normally just upload to bucket on anything over 100
but a direct upload is quicker on here.

U'm, O.K. I looked for some gallery info but could not find
any. I read your link Dave. I see the image optimizer but do not need that. Thanks.

Not that I am complaining about a VF25 grade on this coin
but I just got done looking at a bunch of PCGS, NGC and anacs
ones and they are giving grades of VF30, 35 and even 40
to coins with less detail than mine. Are the TPG's going whacky or should I just jump on board here. ?
There is even one on the bay and bidding is well over $200.00 for a PCGS 30 that looks not that great. Also, about that SS
mine does look a little different but not sure exactly what it
is supposed to look like.

I know don't those TPGs just drive you nuts.

From your image I'd say VF25.

I like the 20c coins they kind'a remind me of a mini Trade dollar but not quite.

Can you get a closer shot of the mintmark?

There is an RPM variety that exists.

Indian let me tell you something.That is a nice coin. If LIBERTY is clear in hand, I can see VF-30 If not F-15 or VF-20. Only you can see it in hand. Either way NICE. I'm a certified coin collecter because my grading skills suck. And I'm a big chicken when it comes to buying raw coins. YOU DID GOOD. Like Dave said check the mm.

Liberty I can read in hand. Stronger to the right.
Only part is the lower leg of the E that sort of blends in with the rest of of the banner. I was just amazed at the pics. I saw of other TPG's VF30's. I could not even make out a full never mind even a little mushy liberty on those. I checked ebay and saw a PCGS 30 going for well over FMV which is over $205.00 Think it brought around $240.00 Looked a lot more worn than mine. Still cannot find anything on the S/S. Either way S or S/S same price. I know it's tougher to sell a raw coin but sometimes it's a better deal. I just had to weigh the cost of a slab against what I wanted for it. Even if by chance it did go 30 it would still be a wash for what I am asking. I feel comfortable with a solid VF25 grade on this one. I think a very fair price and as always if not satisfied with what the grade is then it can be returned. Either a full refund or if a lower grade then make up the difference. I will keep this up on here for a few more days. Later in the week I am bringing this one and a few others that I have to my dealer. He pays full FMV to me if he wants the coin personally and close to FMV if he wants to resell.
