    I wanted to reply to the thread so I could follow what the guys that read diagnostics say. I would be surprised if this one isn't an 18/17.

    Sure looks like the top of a 7. I think I'd spend the money to have it authenticated.
    Is it yours, or are you looking to buy it?

    The diagnostic for lower grades is a die clash next to her right knee (our left) that looks like an E. I’m not sure whether mine is or not, but I think it looks like it has it. It’s best visible in the first picture if you zoom in.

    Just got it in the mail today! Was worried I was going to get a look alike or something but it’s the same coin that was in the pictures. I’m going to wait for a couple more opinions before I send it off but you make me optimistic!

    I'm a bit pessimistic -- that remaining upper hole in the 8 looks too symmetrical, and I've never been able to reliably see the left-of-knee diagnostic. If it were mine, I'd send it to ICG with the CT special, or maybe ANACS. I sure can't rule out that it's the overdate.

    You could be right. It could also be the angle I took that picture at. It looks less circular from the other side, but I don’t really know for sure. Caused by wear potentially? 8247483C-3110-48A3-91EE-7C5DF83B449D.jpeg

    This one is a graded example that doesn’t look too far off

    I think you have it! Can you post an image of the reverse as well? The obverse appears to have the clashed E at the correct position and the Mint mark appears to be in the correct place. The bottom of the 8 is pretty strong right to the rim. If it was not the overdate, the bottom opening of the 8 would be visible.

    If it turns out to be one, I feel like I just won the lottery! Here’s the reverse 34193D6C-8AEE-498B-A318-3563D5C0B271.jpeg

    If you really think it is you should take it to your LCS and get their opinion. You can always send it in for grading to make sure but I just can’t tell from the photos.

    Yeah, well, don't count your money, just yet, because no one is going to bid it as an 8/7 like that. Get it attributed, then count.

    Undoubtedly! But for $35 I feel like I’m doing alright even if it isn’t one. It’s probably going to ANACS tomorrow or Monday, fingers crossed!

    I’m assuming you have some experience with ANACS, do I need to pay extra for variety attribution? I believe with NGC it’s free, and that got me all confused lol

    I wish you best of luck! The wear in critical areas prevent a positive ID for me. I have seen several in the past that were close but not. They however will have the coin in hand, rather than photos. Jim
