    Ok the coin has arrived (strangely enough the box was in my door an hour ago when i steped out with the dog, guessing it went to the neighbors box)(again)

    Anyway, I'm thanking the idiot seller for the bad pic's that showed "toning".. there ain't none... Here you go, let's try the grading again... giving serious consideration to sending it in might just get an MS grade.... note: it does have a bit of "toning/patina" under the light but it a nice clean RB with a redish orange tinge/flash under the light. clean fields with no wizz or cleaning marks... I'm damn happy with it :D Is it the same coin pictured in the 1st pic? I think so as the weak dentical on the reverse near the D are identical... If not the same coin.... I'm not complaining hehe :D added clearer pic's below

    I think the photos in first pics are better but not as focused . The second pics are less desirable . My opinion . AU -58

    Agreed.. those were some crappy pics don't know why the camera did that.. so these should be much better (used other cam lol) still not as sharp as i'd like the hair on top is full waves no breaks but shows "weak" in pic..
