    1. 67 - I'm guessing there is more luster than is apparent in photo.
    2. 65 - Probably a 64 but will go with what I think they did.
    3. 63 - It is probably bumped up one, but I hope not :)

    First, I'm envious of the Lincoln
    1-66RD again a beautiful coin
    2-64 might have been a little higher except for the ding in the face of washington
    3-63 just a few to many problems for a higher grade

    Thanks for the fun contest

    I'm not in the running, but I'll play along for kicks. Again, I started with my first impression and then checked on photograde to verify.

    Lincoln - MS66 (I started at 65 but after checking photograde it almost looks like a 67, so i split the difference)
    Washington - MS63 (I thought the strike looked a bit weak on the obverse but I'm not an expert, I'm just talking out of my butt)
    Morgan - MS64

    1. 66 RB
    2. 64 Nice strike but too many nicks for a gem.
    3. 65 I'm thinking thats one grade too high but I was one grade low on the last one.

    I know I least got one right out of the first round but name did not make it on the list. Good luck to everybody.

    Can anyone impart some wisdom on the reverse of the quarter? (I'm not trying to help other contestants so pm me if you have an answer and don't want it public) To me it looks 'mushy'... which would indicate a weak strike IMO? I've seen pieces like this and often had difficulty assigning a penalty to the coin for that feature.

    Also@OP, those are scratches on the coin at Coin 2's eagle's breast, right? Or on the holder. My grade assumes the former

    Lincoln MS67 (Very Nice Coin IMO...could make higher, would have to see in person)
    Washington MS63 (Not a fan of deep dings...especially in key spots, dings are hard for consistency)
    Morgan MS64 (Scratches better than dings, there are many)
