I have no problem calling this a FS coin. I am also wondering why there is no 68 guess in the vote. It's very clean and lustrous.
My vote is 67FS and wouldn't have a problem with a +.
I like the way you think newcomer.
I will change my vote to 67+ 5FS after looking through all of the PCGS plate coins for FS. Here are 4 that I believe grade below your coin and also have weaker steps than yours.
I see your point but I have also played the PCGS plate coin game before....sometimes you see coins that look the same or worse but they end up in higher graded holders.
It is impossible to tell this from my photos, but the luster is a tad muted. I expected a grade of MS66 FS. I am not going to reveal quite yet, but I will say that NOBODY has gotten it right, and I don't think anyone will.
The only thing I can think is that they are calling the marks above the "LO" in Monticello on the building a wheel mark, which is crazy.
Where are the wheel marks? I sure as heck do not see any. Think PCGS blew another one. As I have maintained recently, NGC has been far more accurate than PCGS.
