    This one is in an old ANACS holder.

    Sure like like it to me. It was caused by a die clash. Quite common on Franklins.

    First thought-MS-66FBL
    Second thought-very strong strike, good nose line, good definition on wooden collar holding the bell, strong Pass and Stow and good definition on the eagle.
    In my opinion, it should grade MS-67FBL or MS-68FBL when compared to PCGS examples.

    Appears to be a weak strike as not a great deal of details, but still a very nice coin. MS65 but being an ANACS graded coin, I have no clue.

    I love Franklins as they bring back memories for me! That said, I'm terrible at grading them! :D MS-63

    I'll guess 65 but no FBL, based on the image.

    I still think I am correct, but that is my opinion. ANACS got it wrong.

    Did ANACS even put FBL on the label when this was graded?
