    Hi All

    I wasn't going to post this but my curiosity got to me. When I bought this coin I was super proud of it.. It's a beautiful coin and the first I bought as a "collector."

    I showed it to a few coin collector friends and then a dealer who all said that it was substantially undergraded, and should also have the Full Head designation.

    For the sake of my own wonder, what grade do you think?? (FWIW I wouldn't send it to be regraded anyways as it would have to jump like 2 full points to make the cost worth it)

    Will post the grade later! Also - sorry for the pics not being perfect - can't figure out how to shoot through the slab!

    MS 64 ....looks like a beautiful Walker!

    By the way, "Full Head" is usually reserved for Standing Liberty Quarters

    The Hand detail on this coin determines the strength of the strike.
    I am at a 64 . The coin looks brilliant.

    Easy MS64 assuming the reverse hairlines are on the holder.

    64, possible 65. Looks like maybe some ticks on the sun, a grade sensitive area.

  12. MS-64

    According to baseball21’s standards, it is probably an MS-61.

    I think slab says 64. Might go 65 upon resubmission.

    A lot of things are done to coins post-mint, and experienced collectors generally don't want such.

    The grade is:

    NGC MS 63

    The people who saw it in hand said it should be in the 65 range as well.

    Novelty coin. I have two that are part of a money clip.

    The photos make it difficult to really see the detail. I'm at a 63 due to wear on the hand and breast plate. Those, the sandal and eagle's breast feathers are grading points.
