    Very hard to find in higher grades. What would you grade this one?

    Wow, a beautiful example. Easy AU or better of some sort.

    I am curious and want to ask the guys/gals that say AU... what do you see keeping it from MS?

    The luster looks a little thicker in the protected areas. I'm thinking nice AU.

    Probably Uncirculated (all the high points are clean) but am unable to see the front/top jewel of the crown; even the ribbon corners are sharp and clean. I suspect the nicks and tiny marks will down grade it; it is indeed a wonderful coin; well done indeed.

    I see just the most minimal wear on the hair bun, the eyebrow and some of the higghest portions of the leaves and leaf tips. I'll say AU-58

    Not seeing AU. I'd guess 62 or 63. Nice coin. Wish it were mine!

    Out of curiosity, do you plan on having it slabbed in the near future?

    I sent it off this AM... i personally think it will come back at 62 or 63... but that might just be me hoping!

    Very nice. My wild guess would be 62.

    As such, a very desirable coin, as you are aware.

    I'd venture high AU (AU-58) and maybe low MS.

    The surface looks original and crusty enough. I'd get it certified just to be safe as you may have a multiple thousand dollar coin.
