    It's been a while since I did a guess the grade on here. I received this in the mail a little while back. I finally got a chance to shoot it, so I thought I would share it here. :)

    I'm guessing AU. I don't see much wear though so maybe just a weak strike?

    64, 65? Well, the education continues. Hold everything when in doubt I suppose.

    MS65, let's see, common date Walker, it has to be a no line fatty...:rolleyes:

    Looks like s solid MS-65 to me. Beautifully toned and well struck coin.

    Yeah, it's certainly not a great strike. It is better than most of the San Francisco coins of the same year. LOL

    LOL, nope, it's not in a NGC holder. It's in a PCGS holder and one of my favorites. :)

    Since it's not in a fatty (which generally I just assume with your GTGs and guess conservatively) I'll guess MS66 which is the holder I think it should be in. Was gonna guess 65 if in a fatty. It's a beauty too

    And that is why I said it's a well struck coin.

    I'm still waiting on it as well. He's supposed to be getting back to me as he thinks he still has it. If so, come home to papa!!! :)

    Yes, the NGC no line fatty is my favorite holder, especially prior to the addition of the bar code on front and more particularly pre hologram. But alas, this is a PCGS holder. I am a fan of PCGS and my favorite holder from them is the rattler. So don't tread on me. ;):cigar:
