    Beautiful coin, although I don't think it's FS- there is a minor dent on the bottom step.
    I guessed MS66.

    I chose 67 thinking the facial issues are planchet flaws, and just misses FS.
    Nice coin.

    Based on the absolutely ridiculous grading I've seen from the TPG's concerning high point pitting and Jeffersons, I really don't see any reason why this coin doesn't grade MS-69 FS.

    Compared to your recent GTGs, I honestly think this is in consideration for MS-68 at least.

    You've shown us 67's that I thought should be 64. Based on that scale, let's all throw darts at a whale and see where they land?

    That was funny, but you didn’t give us your grade. Btw, speaking of whales, I’m currently reading Moby Dick.

    Also, I refer to the 50-D as my “white whale” because I have had at least 6 different coins represent that slot in my registry collection. I just can’t find one that meets all of my standards.

    I voted for 66FS, which appears to have the plurality of votes so far...ahhh, safety in numbers.

    MS 66 5FS Would have said FS but don't know if it's just a shadow blocking the bottom step.

    66 5fs
    The fields look clean, I don’t see any major hits, and there appear to be 5 steps (at least based on the prior examples you’ve posted).

    Aren't all 6 steps required for FS designation ?

    NGC denotes 5 or 6 (5fs or 6fs).

    I didn't realize that option was up there. I thought it was just FS not 5 FS.
    My bad. I think i could see it getting 5 FS, not quite all 6 steps.
    MS67- 5-FS. then.

    PCGS uses FS which only needs five full steps. NGC designates both 5FS and 6FS.

    There is a reason I used 5FS in the poll.
