    GTG! This one was done a few years ago, but it'll be fun to see what folks think today. No cheating if you remember it or find it!

    I’m in the AU 53 to 55 range, go with 55.

    50 was my first reaction so I’ll go with that.

    That’s funny... What leads you to see a details grade? I’m asking because I am weak on the Barber series.

    Based off luster I'm saying 55.

    I'm at AU-50 on this half. A touch of west on the wing tips and a bit more on the tail. Another nice Barber coin.

    I think it’s 53 but may have netted 50 due to being dipped and retoned in an album.

    Is that doubling I spy in the date?

    Yes, that is an RPM you’re noticing. I originally bought this from the photos and didn’t see that until it was in hand. :)

    I don't think it has enough luster for a 55, so I'll say AU53. Overall a nice looking coin ;).
