    In an NGC slab (a relatively modern one):

    I'll say 61FH nice one although those carbon spots are a killer can't guess PL without seeing it in person.

    From the photos I will guess 62FH. Hard to determine the amount of chatter. I agree that it is too bad all that carbon spotting is present (and unfortunate where it is appearing).

    Why does the poll have two choices for MS60?
    I couldn't decide between them :bored:
    Probably 61 or 62 anyway.
    Nice coin BTW

    Here is some advice. I would leave that coin in the holder. The spots are obvious enough to possibly get an “environmental damage” if it were to be re-graded.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the reason for obscuring the bar code and certification number from the image? Is this something I should be doing?

    It's common to find faked slabs that use correct codes. A forger just has to search auctions or listings to find a coin that will match what they're faking. And, once fakes are made, the original coin often ends up getting red flagged too.

    Whenever I post my slabs, I obscure the code to avoid getting tangled up in that.

    Well, I certainly wasn't planning on crossing it over or anything. I think the grade is accurate. And I was able to buy it at an AU55 price point.

    I am curious about what could have caused those spots though. Chemical exposure from a mint bag with a little sulphur on the burlap? Or someone coughing/sneezing on the coin during the Spanish Flu pandemic? I'm choosing to think of the latter & adding a layer of story to it.

    Boy, those carbon spots are killers. Too bad.
