    I believe this coin is vastly undergraded in its current ngc holder. Wondering what you guys think?

    Very handsome coin. Dunno what the holder says, but it looks VF30 to me.

    Great, on my scale of eye appeal.

    I agree with the VF-30s.

    Nice original surfaces. I like it.

    I think it's real nice too. I'll reveal later. You won't believe what ngc did to it.

    And, it is straight graded.

    I'm partially cheating because my Barber-grading skills are lacking. But I have a 1915 whose wear pattern is very similar to this, and my Barber is PCGS-graded a VF25.

    My skills aren't that great either. I'm a half dollar collector but not much into barbers. I used pcgs photo grade.

    Please don't say they went EF, but I could believe a silly high F grade though.

    I think conservatively vf20. But as you can see, ngc has this at f12 and I can't figure why. I am sending it to CAC to see if it gets a gold bean. If it doesn't, I'll crack it out and send it to pcgs next year.

    Good luck. No way that's only an F12.

    And on this year, there's a price jump from F to VF. I can't believe the original submitter left it this way. Unless they already had too much in it. I paid up for f12 price but well under vf20
