    I haven't done any of these in a while, and I really like this coin, so I thought I would share.

    Wow, sweet! I'm not that good (or even a novice) on grading Busties, but I think it looks like a MS-64. :thumb: Incredible. :thumb: Does it have a variety?

    I took away a bit of the yellow look. I hope that's ok. It's has too much blue now.
    To me it looks AU cleaned and the dark area above and behind the head worry me.

    NGC graded. I can't remember the overton number off hand, but it is a common variety.

    NGC graded the coin au-55 star PL.

    The coin has incredible eye appeal in hand, and I definitely did not do the coin justice with the pictures.
