    The top half of the coin is well lit (maybe overlit).... but the bottom half is quite underlit. It is clear that you have the technology to make good pictures, and this coin is attractive. Can you try rearranging your lights to achieve a more even lighting, and then repost? I'll wager a grade then.

  6. I’m moving in a couple days, so this is the best that is going to happen with the lighting situation

    Moving certainly doesn't help! Those new pics aren't a whole lot better. Given the pics, I'll say 65, but I think better pics might convince me higher.

    Knowing the TPG'S these days they'll say UNC details Stained. But looks like a 65 to me.

    I’m not really liking how the obverse seems to have much less luster than the reverse. Seems like someone applied a dip to clean what looked nice toning one the obverse. Still would get a clean grade though, MS-65.

    Beautiful coin. Seeing this, my next purchase will be a nice S Morgan or S walker.

    It looks like it has had a bath, that thumb or finger rub from 5 to 9 seems to be disturbing the lower cheek in your photos. Maybe you can get some better light after your move?

    I'm at MS-65, but better pics will help after your move.

    MS65 but the dull fields on the obverse may be frowned upon by a TPG.
