    You're thoughts on this 1971-S Proof Kennedy. I can't find a flaw on it. 1971-S Obverse.jpg 1971-S Kennedy Reverse.jpg

    The one thing I learned from examining proof coins graded 69 & 70, is that it only takes a very small flaw, no bigger than the size of a pinpoint, to lower a grade to 69. I can see this with the coin in hand, but for me, it's impossible from a photo.

    Very nice I have some of these not as beautiful as yours but one you can see the lines in it and has a black tint to the cone

    I know it would have to grade awfully high to be worth getting graded. Especially as a single submission.

    The only problem I see with grading that particular coin is that even in PR69 it's worth about what it would cost you to have it graded. In deep cameo it would probably be worth it. Hard to see by the photo;)

    The Mint has perfected their production methods for proof coins so much that now the only ones that carry a decent premium are those that grade PF70UCAM (or DCAM).

    That wasn't the case in 1971.

    That is true, but the grading services, today, aren't using the standards that were prevalent in those days.

    I was talking about the minting process in 1971. There are 0 graded 70 from 1971.

    This thread made me pull out the 6 proof sets I have in OGP! One of these days I am going to crack the ones open that look cam! I like to dream that not only would the half grade 69DC but so would the quarter...:rolleyes:
