    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Hard for me to tell from the pics but I think it's a lamination. However, I would grade it Good

    When posting photos, please try to insert the images into the post as opposed to adding thumbnails, particularly when asking about grades. A little more light upon the coin would have greatly benefited your photos.

    A belated welcome, sir.

    Need better photos .. you may look at pcgs photograde site. This may help you

    Seems our posts were a little out of sync .. I posted this before your photos
    With your latest photos I would think VG is not out of line but Shield Nickels are not my specialty.

    Looks like a die crack to me, not a lamination. I'd grade it F-12. The reverse actually grades a bit higher than that (not much).
