    Larger files on each individual piece will render an opinion from the multitude here. It is impossible to grade from the photogs you have provided.

    Common dates. At $3.00 each you are paying $12.00 per dollar face. That's junk value pricing. Not a bad price.

    There may have been a reason those were $3 each. Sometimes at a local shop I'd find ones that nice looking thrown in loose in a junk pre-'65 box.

    To these old eyes they look original and un-messed with. Nothing higher than a '63 or '62. Something that I used to pick out of the pocket change back in my day......

    Don’t think you want to pay to grade those, but they would look nice in an album.

    If I needed those dates to put in a coin folder, I'd buy them at $3.00. (That's close to melt value also).

    So...you picked MS coins from your circulating pocket change ? :wideyed: Isn't that a little bit impossible ? ;)

    Not at all. You just have to be older like me. Silver circulated for 10 years when I was young but I started collecting when I was five. All silver coins that were released into circulation were Mint state coins. It took a few years but silver was pulled out of circulation starting in 1965 and silver dollars were first to go.

    You missed the point. MS is opposite of circulated. So you can't find MS coins, in circulated pocket change. You can find coins in high AU, but not MS coins in pocket change.

    You missed the point! I could go to a bank and get coins that had never been in circulation. That is MS. If a store employee cracked a roll and you got the coins in that roll there were uncirculated. They were MS coins.

    I guess you had to be old enough to understand that in 1964 pre silver coins were all we had a new rolls were all MS. Really it's the same today but they're all clad ones. Yuk!!

    I think you need to research the definition of MS/UNC, and circulated. Once the coin is in circulation, it is circulated. Now can pocket change still be graded MS, very doubtful, as at least some signs of circulation rub/wear/friction etc... Will grade circulated (AU or worse) Most certainly when pulled from pocket change.

    MS and uncirculated are two different things. MS is a grade used for coins have no trace of wear, as if uncirculated, but may have actually circulated. Uncirculated coins haven't circulated. Uncirculated the grade is the same as MS, and leads to the mistaken assumption that all coins that grade MS are uncirculated coins.

    We will have to agree to disagree. Can we agree to that?
