I personally think that this one is a BS, and not an SMS.
It has many characteristics of an early die state, without the mirrored look to it.
Anyone who guessed 67 got this one right IMO.
the tie breaker would go to @Morgandude11 for the ANACS slab.

Definitely early die state, which may have thrown off the lower guessers. The surfaces are beautiful, and ANACS got it right, IMO.
Personally I don't second guess the grade. What I am guessing is the SMS.
Me too. That looks questionable.
It is going into my soap box slab collection.
We may never know.
I have a few 66 that are close. I am just not sure that the FS is used for the SMS. Isn't that just a BS designation?
I don't think it's used because there aren't any.
Could be. I will look into it this evening.
I can only hope you can find one in FS, as that would give me incentive to locate one myself. That's the first thing I look for on an SMS nickel. They say close only counts in horseshoes.
Oh, I thought we had to guess:
Hard boiled or soft boiled
Separate names with a comma.
