    This coin is in a different company's holder. While neither a PCGS nor an NGC coin, I wanted to see what you all think of it.

    61. Hope John isn’t right (though I wouldn’t bet against him)

    Weak strike, dull luster, and a whole heck of a lot of contact marks. It doesn't look like wear, so I'm at 61.

    I' m in the 62 camp for this scarce date.

    I was shocked to actually receive a very nice coin.

    It is not tooled, as John surmised.

    Unfortunately I have to make it down to a 60 /61 due to the slab it is in....this is automatic for me to due so in an ICG slab they seem to over grade always.
    I won't most times buy a ICG slab coin.

    I understand, as I myself rarely bother with them. That is why I was shocked at how nice this coin is when I saw it in person.

    Should cross in a NGC/PCGS MS62 holder...just my two cent.
    Nice coin...;)

    I think that would cross as an MS-63 or 64 unless the photo is not showing us something. At the risk of upsetting people, I'll show you these two graded pieces.

    Well, I'm surprised.

    And if I was the owner of this piece I would leave it as is ,and sell it as trying to cross over may prove to be a bad choice with pcgs,or ngc.
    Well no matter raw or slabed I am always selling the coin for what it is , not the assigned grade by a tpg.
