I'm in at 67.
To me, a + grade is the result of a coin that you think is between grades but something held it back to the lower grade. For example, if I was torn between MS67 and MS66 for this coin but ultimately chose MS66 because of the mark on the reverse below the C, then it would stand to reason that the grade should be MS66+.
I’m not trying to say I think the coin is an MS66+, I’m just pointing out that in my world, the + grade has real function.
Curious on this one.
Those are die polish lines and don’t affect the grade.
Then a good chance at 66+ IMO
But I chose 65+ to be clear.
But this is a Jefferson, so it's probably something ridiculous.
Lol, those darn remnant planchet flaws.
Edit: I meant marks on the cheek, not the shoulder. (I've been looking at Lincolns, where the planchet marks are predominately on the shoulder when the metal does not flow entirely up into the voids of the die. So I misspoke.)
Nickel is hard, and the raw planchets are usually banged up, so I don't think these small marks that remain from the planchets have much effect on this grade.
