    It was first a different grade.;)
    There are some pretty unique toned 63D Franklins.

    My grade is grade is MS63 but the color on that coin is hinky, UNC Details Questionable Color.

    I called it 65 but I have a hard time grading toned coins... the colors distract my eyes too much :D

    Which is really unfortunate as 1963-D's with decent bell lines are hard to come by. It's not FBL, but it's close.

    The color looks somewhat like a chemical spill, just from how it lays on the coin in certain spots. I'm not seeing FBL. On a real good day, MS64. Pretty coin.

    If you look at the rpm one of the pick ups is doubling to EPU. I would imagine that the U might have some doubling also.

    Here is a different look at the half. Has a lot of deep smooth luster.

    What is the grade on the slab.
    I can't see the slab, so have no idea. Can't you read it? LOL Just feeling like a snot today.

    I'm guessing (and that's all it is) MS63 weak strike.

    Sorry folks, didn't make it home last night. It's Bachelor week for me.
    It got a 91. Which is Genuine QC- UNC details.
    I have thought about using this coin as an first time dipping experiment. I bought it for the RPM, and not the color as it is kind a funky as @Lehigh96 and others pointed out.
    Thanks for your opinions on grade. Too @Skyman yes the bell lines are just shy of being full. But I have seen worse get the attribution.
