    Ok guys and girls, I need your opinions! I, like some of you, buy boxes of coins from the bank. Well my bank said they had a box of hand rolled nickels that I could buy. Long story short, about 20 of the rolls were mixed with, what has to be someones collection. I have several crazy coins that are, I know worth a lot, but want your opinion on just one for now. I have looked at an Ebay auction for a 1961 fs ms-66+ nickel and it is for sale $22500 graded by PCGS and also on PCGS website they have an ms-66 example pictured. Mine kicks both coins ass. I wish I could take better pictures but there is not a blemish on it. I also found a 1959, 1962, 1963, 2 1964, and a 1970s, all fs and the same quality. Insane box. In my opinion, my steps are perfect, just want yours! 20191010_092800.jpg 20191010_092846.jpg 20191010_092857.jpg 20191010_092800.jpg

    If the 1961 is a proof coin, it does not qualify for full steps designation.

    Looks like a Proof coin and they ALL are supposed to have FS.

    Looks like I see a vertical line across the steps, on the left side, on the first pic, but that may be moot as per the answers from Michael and Razz.
