    63 seems about right, about all I know about these is they have a reputation of being difficult to grade.

    Nope. Look again. No wear. If it were worn, it would not be MS.

    Remember, gold is a lot tougher to grade than silver, Nickel or copper coins. Then you're doing it from a photo. :)

    Not my coin. I just see no wear. The coin looks MS to me. The coin often has weak strikes.

    Gold is indeed a tricky nut.

    Is it NGC or PCGS who grades tighter on gold?

    It depends on how drunk the graders get;).
