That being said, it is indeed a cool circulation find. Finding a 46-year-old cent that's still Brilliant Uncirculated is neat. Finding an S-mint coin in circulation is kind of fun, too.
It's not going to be MS 68 it's not going to be worth $30-$50 to
get a coin graded that's worth 1 cent.
If you like this coin save it in a 2x2 coin flip.
I have many a coin that i found in circulation that would grade MS.
It's a great thought but not actually true.
Really? were you aware that Mint State needs to be uncirculated in order to qualify to become a MS grade? Here's a chart you might want to refer to as a reference guide. Sorry, but it is a physical impossibility to even find 1 coin that qualifies to be mint state in circulation. AU-59 is the highest grade you will ever find in circulation.
Uncirculated MS-60, MS-61, MS-62
Select or Choice Uncirculated MS-63
Choice Uncirculated MS-63, MS-64
Gem Uncirculated MS-65, MS-66
Superb Gem Uncirculated MS-67, MS-68, MS-69
Perfect Uncirculated MS-70
I know it can be confusing to most.
MS is a condition and not related to how you got the coin. I know it would be hard to relate but it is true.
There's really no AU 59 grade anymore.
I'd greatly appreciate if you'd explain to me and the audience on how you can find an uncirculated coin in circulation.
Here is a photo of some:
Go to your local bank. Buy a new roll of any denomination. Take it home and crack the roll open. The entire roll is in mint state and yet there are considered circulated. It's easy.
Once in a while I have trouble getting an acceptable coin, and I have been
lucky and been able to replace coins at a later date that is in better condition.
Were you aware that an MS coin has never even been touched by human hands?
