    You've got two that I think are worth a try . . . with PCGS, and not with NGC.

    NGC has always been tough on Nickels....they grade on the lower side almost all the time.
    Ive even seen MS 65 on an pcgs slab ,and cross to a 64 at NGC.
  6. Thank ya fellas! I’ve attached a few more photos in case I didn’t attach these last night. This is the one that is rock solid and could only pray now it gets a 65 grade. Comparatively to all the nickels I’ve had graded a 65 is very possible. All these came out of 1 roll as you can see the mint mark is a D/D/D with several splits at the top it looks like.

  10. I assume TPG is photo grade from PCGS. If so will do. I will send it walkthrough to try and get it back quick, and meet the value I hope it to be.

    Personally, I wouldn't send any of those coins walkthrough. That's a lot of money.

  12. If it hits 65 ain’t they gonna charge me anyways for it based on the book value at 12,500.00. I hate to pay that and end up dragging it outFor several weeks when I could’ve got it back in a couple days I’ve never had a valuable coin that they have had to change the price on me yet so I don’t know how that works

    For me, I wouldn't send any of them to be graded. I don't believe you will be happy with the results, but I'm probably wrong. From what I've read on PSGS and NGC on FS, I don't think they qualify, but then your photos aren't the best and in hand it maybe FS. Good luck and looking forward to seeing the results.

    I don't think they will grade FS either. But, I am eagerly awaiting the results.

    I don't think any of them make the FS grade. If you look at a proof coin you'll get the idea of what full steps are but proofs do not qualify for FS.

    This is a full step Nickel graded by PCGS. It has 5 full steps.

    That looks like 6 steps to me!

  19. It will get the steps grade I know what full steps are supposed to be and you only need 5 of them. The problem lies now in the grade. Here’s how it works on money coins. When you get the designation then magically you don’t get the grade it will fall a hair short and the high grade one will magically not get the designation. It’s designed for the company’s that make PCGS rich to win as if they graded the spenders coins like they do the regular broke ass normal person the spenders wouldn’t get anything graded. In all reality FS is supposed to designate the strike of the coin so a bag mark shouldn’t affect the opinion of the strike the coin got. I hate grading as it’s rigged but when you have one that is a heavy hitter you have no choice but to try if you wanna get paid. I promise it will get steps but will come back a 64 magically to just get my grading fees back. Once again look at the top pop coins in photograde of any 50’s or 60’s nickel most have all the steps interrupted by a gash. This was my point of saying they should consider my 1960-D because it’s actually not to distracting and it’s no different from any of the other ones that get it. I think there are far worse ones with a 67 grade attached. I definitely understand that under normal designation it would not be a full steppers on my 60-D but they have never found one before and when u look at the coin it’s a nice strike and to the naked eye the full steps are visible. They will never see a perfect one so why not make this put the 60-D on the map!! It pisses me off the more i type about it. Anyways I’ll share the results when I get em!

    Better photo showing 5 FS and 1/4 of the 6th step. No one will trip on these if walking up to the Monticello building:) the light scrape going northwest towards the right side does not affect the steps enough and does not cause any breakage so it won’t be considered a mark to kill the FS designation. I don’t see where it wouldn’t get it but I’ve been wrong a million times before so hopefully the grader is in a good mood when he’s grading mine. Goodnight folks I’m heading to dream i got it so at least I’ll experience a win for a little bit lol

    We'll have to agree to disagree. At least until the grader renders their opinion and one of us is proven right. I actually don't even think you should spend the money to have FS denied.

    I do wish you good luck though.
