    My first thought was MS 64 and I'm sticking to it...the cheek, eyebrows, and forehead marks are what keep from saying MS 65 (which could still be the grade and I might be too harsh).

    Edit: didn't notice the CAC option at first...I'll guess no (hasn't been) but it should qualify as a 64 (might not as a 65 in my opinion)

    What does it tell you that only 3 of 20 voters graded it MS66?

    It tells me BTW's (and to some degree Commems as a whole) are difficult to grade for those who are not familiar with them.

    I guarantee that most who guessed below 65 thought those planchet marks on Booker's face were hits. Look at the coin and show me the hits that would bring it below 65/gem.

    When you find a BTW with a smooth cheek, I can almost say, without seeing it, it will be a 67.
