    MS 63 ...I don't see wear...the halos around the stars suggests it was likely dipped (but I don't think it's enough to detail/call it cleaned)....nice type coin overall

    I was confused by all of the marks on the coin. At first I thought it might be a clash, but nothing lines up. Die cracks? I think more than likely a defective planchet. As for grade, I'll vote MS63 but would like to know which TPG graded it.

    The reverse fields make me think the coin is AU, cleaned, or both. I don't think a details coin would make a great type coin so I am going with AU58.

    It's got life in it. Not a hell of a lot, but it's there. They grade these for their markets, so this goes MS62-63. I gave it the benefit of the draw in the poll, MS63.

    I'm more into silver coins than nickels or other metals - but I think this is a really nice lustrous, original coin and I'm going to go a bit further and say MS-64.

    I went with a 62 bit I love the coin. Great die cracks and a small rim cud. Beautiful!!

    Anybody who guessed 62 or 63 on a 64 is in the ballpark. I, personally, don’t see how the coin could be considered AU. No wear that I see. A cud, and die cracks, that are kind of cool.

    I was a little late to the party but after looking at the coin before your TPG post, I was teetering on 62/63. Very nice coin. Glad I was wrong.
