    Yes, I would like to know what company graded it, too! The obverse looks like it has been polished.

    He's grading them himself from what I can tell, based maybe on shinyness and what he'd like it to be.

    Yes, I'm not a specialist but in my hands it really looks like an MS65 up, it has no defects or signs of wear from the circulated

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    Are all of those hairlines on the coin, or on the holder it is in?

    To me, it looks like a harshly polished AU coin, not an MS-65.

    It has many defects. Every single line you are seeing on that is a defect. Plus if you cleaned the coin (washing and wiping) you ruined any value this had before that. NEVER clean a coin. NEVER wipe a coin like it looks like this one got wiped.

    With all due respect, sir; the problems have nothing to do with resolution or lighting. As much as I can appreciate the “to me” part, please understand that standards exist for a reason. A coin’s supposed or claimed history also has no impact on its grade.

    Unfortunately, you have just destroyed any numismatic premium it might have had by cleaning it improperly. For most collectors, you will be lucky to get a junk silver price for it - .18084 x current price of silver.

    This is an extremely common coin, and its value will never be more than its silver content. This coin will never be worth "a thousand dollars."

    This will never be worth 100 dollars.

    This will never be worth 10 dollars, unless the price of silver goes up.

    You have a polished AU coin.

    Not a 65 by any means. Sorry.

    If I can buy a 2000 year old Roman coin for $10, I'm guessing I'll be able to buy this coin for a similar amount in the year 4019.

    Gianni, do you even remotely understand what the others are trying to tell you? Do you know what hairlines are? Please read this thread again, look at your coin again and think about it.
