I think there's just (barely) enough to hold it from 66
Lehigh96 thats a really nice coin. i voted MS66 and NO FS. good luck friend
I'm not sure what method you are using, but the accepted method to count steps is to count the number of complete uninterrupted lines and then add one. So if you see 4 lines, then the coin has 5 full steps.
We had a lot of guys say MS66, and that is what NGC said back in the 90's, but remember, NGC didn't create the 5FS designation until 2003.
GTG 1942-D Jefferson Nickel (PCGS)
So, is this in a NGC No line Fatty or a PCGS slab?
Well, it started in a NGC no line fatty slab, then it got cracked out and spent a decade raw in my album collection. Currently, it resides in a PCGS slab, but I think we can give the guys who guessed MS66 a few hours of glory before we sink their ship.
You mean, they went DOWN in grade to 65?
Winner Winner chicken dinner!
This one isn't too high, it is an MS67 FS all day long, I was actually expecting an MS67+ FS. This is the most lustrous 1942-D I have ever seen. My decision to submit it was because it stuck out like a sore thumb in my album collection and was significantly nicer than any other coin on page 1. My album collection consists of all gem and premium gem coins, many of which were cracked out of older slabs, just like this one.
