There's a chance it got mishandled a little bit, as @Pickin and Grinin mentioned. I personally don't see anything there in the pictures that's severe enough to prevent it from straight-grading, but then again, I'm not a TPG grader or a Franklin half specialist.
Nice looking coin, although i agree, it looks like it's been handled by a novice before it was encapsulated. I'd grill this "friend" about it's provenance. Make them sweat.
My bigger question, how do you get those doohickies open? Thanks!
Oh, you mean those plastic capsules? Carefully, by inserting a knife blade or similarly thin item you can use as a lever into the seam. Twist slightly, being careful not to slip with the tool and hit the coin, of course, and the two halves of the capsule will come apart.
Thank you. I couldn't even find the seam! I'll look a little closer
Yes- @CoinJockey73 - look for that little notch, if your capsules have them. It's easier to get your prying tool in there.
This guy sounds like a trouble maker. You may do best to avoid a scoundrel, like this.
While i agree, there are green grapes that can be spectacular, on occasion. I don't like to favor any of the grapes as it tends to make them uncomfortable. I think it's important to include all grapes in everything. Except grape tomatoes. They stink.
muscadine gets priiveledge
BTW - this coin has at least machine doubling.
It's true! I'm totally a grape luver, and anti tomato. I've been exposed! Lock the thread! Lol. Sorry @Beardigger! I didn't mean to hijack your thread.
Can the machine doubling be pointed out, please? Me eyeballs isn't trained for such sightings yet. Thank you.
