    I'm thinking 65-66 range. I'll go with 65.

    Quite nice.

    I love designs from that era, but the six-odd years I lived in Lynchburg were the longest decades of my life, so I'll always have a hard spot in my heart for that particular commemorative. :inpain:

    From those pictures I'm on 65 due to subdued luster. In hand I might think it's higher.

    I am thinking that there is just enough luster to make this MS66.
    Nice looking skin on that one.

    I think the hits on the cheek keep it from 66

    It has a little rub on the cheek but I'll bet the graders call that "cabinet friction". Downplayed luster. I'm calling it 65 for those two reasons. Nice coin. BTW, you give us a temptation to cheat by displaying the PCGS cert number!

    MS 64 is my guess before I check my work :p

    I figure it is like those puzzle books with the answers in the back. You can do the exercise and then check your work. :p

    I'm sorry it is taking so long to post the reveal, but this is the first time I used this coin store in Phoenix which is only 200 miles from me and I thought I would have the coin in hand by now.

    The coin was graded MS65 by PCGS and I will post a picture when I receive the coin.

    I would say MS-65, maybe 66. I am interpreting the darker areas on the high points as envelope toning. I don't see an MS-67 here.

    @Charles Ruge - did you buy the coin based on the True View, or were there other photos provided by the selling store?
