Ill probably post tonight!
To me it looks like it was roughly cleaned and retoned.(reverse mainly) I Hope it's not a details graded coin.
I'm the outlier so...
Now I think it is both circulated and polished.
Can you elaborate?
Interesting thought. Just to be clear you think its polished even with full luster present and no cleaning marks?
Darn, now I’m all confused.
I actually have an 1896 with light rim toning, so I took another look at it. It’s not graded, so I’m not getting any help on that front.
I thought there was a lack of detail in the hair, but mine, shown above, is just the same.
I thought the cheek should have a more powdery appearance, but mine is just exactly the same.
Your fields are more mirrored than mine. Almost proof-like, I’d say.
And the video of the reverse is just terrific.
Can I slink back to my MS65 PL?
(Note: I’ve been comparing 65’s to 66’s recently when they come up at auction, and most 64’s look worse than this to me.)
I was trying to hint at it with the obverse gif but the cheek has been thumbed. That black streak and the little smudge on the cheek is trying to cover up a bunch of marks. If you look at it closely you can see there's kinda gunk on the cheek and hair and is fairly marked up.
I'm planning on taking it out and trying to remove it somehow but I'll hold off till I have more experience.
