This coin was graded by PCI. Please offer your opinion to the grade, and also if you wish, guess the grade that PCI assigned it.
AU-58 from me and PCI
I would put it at a 53/55. PCI may have put it in a 58 holder. It is a very nice coin!!!

Well, as you know it's an 1833 and the grade looks to be in the AU-55 range
A few things to remember, Certification and Attribution are Absolute and Definitive. Grading, on the other hand IS NOT. STRIKE is everything, be it strong or weak. Capped Bust Half Dollars Identification Reference
PCI 61, I say 55.
Coin collecting is the only hobby in the world that you can spend all the money in the world and still have some left over
I consider the coin to be somewhere around au-55. Now here is the kicker, PCI graded it an xf-45! Here is a perfect example of buy the coin and not the slab. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...6926&rd=1&rd=1
PCI: AU 55
Me: XF 45
Looks like a nice coin -- the eye-appeal looks very nice. However, given the high number of cleaned coins in this series, I'd be on the lookout for hidden signs of cleaning.
Have fun & thanks for sharing...Mike
I don't like the stories I hear about that ebay seller but I must say I bought a coin from him once...a 1926-S Buff that was also undergraded a point just like this one.....
Maybe a trend
