    Definitely looks good. Did it come out of someone's collection?
    MS 65/66.
    Because of the angle and the lighting, I can't see if there are any
    tiny imperfections.

    Looks nice based on the pictures. I would say MS65.

    MS66. A little less light as Michael suggests to perhaps see the surface better, but looks like only light abrasions on the lower bust/beard, small ding on the eye (unfortunate) and a spot by LIBERTY. Obverse looks very nice, a few dings on the rim but the eye is drawn to the important stuff. Reverse also sharp with only a few small bag digs, one a bit heavy on left column, but spread out. It's a terrific coin and a ddo to boot!! Enjoy that coin!!

    Luster breaks are the big determining factor when going over 65, especially in focal areas. Not trying to kick the OP, or degrade the coin, it is an awesome find. How ever he got it.;)
    The first photo on this thread says that this coin should not go above 64.

    Just saying it is hard to get a good interpretation of the coin.

  8. I appreciate your time and thank you, I try to get pictures that do the cent justice but I literally strapped my loop to my phone with a rubber band to take these, but nobody can be upset with 64!
     
  9. It was a "original bank roll" that I was given for Christmas

    Browse Heritage Auctions. It would be advantageous with clearer and better photos where lighting doesn’t wash out the surface. But I think your coin is comparable to the mid MS coins there. One MS67 coin has larger bag marks in similar areas.

    I see a couple of dings, so I'm thinking 64, maybe even 63
