    Definitely not FS. Went with 65, not because of the planchet roughness on the cheek but marks on the jacket, collar and Monticello.

    Solid 66. Not full steps—break in the middle.

    65, not full steps. I debated 64 for the mark directly infront of his ear.

    I'm at MS66+. I don't think it's quite clean enough for 67 but it looks like have great luster and eye appeal so I think it got the + designation. No FS.

    PCGS might go a grade lower, but I'm at NGC MS66, no Full Steps. Nice coin!! Obverse especially. Later die state, but a nice strike.

    It is close to 67.

    I'm saying it is full MS67 because there is little wear and absolutely no marks in the fields.

    I have no problem with high in grade 66, or mid 67. It is a very attractive coin.

    I was between 65 and 66 but gave it the bump to 66 since I'm often one point lower on these nickels....and not full steps

    That coins looks circulated to me. But clearly I don’t know what I’m talking about. I CRH nickels all the time and need to pick my 10 best and send them to ANACS while grading is cheap just to educate myself.

    There is nothing that appears circulated to me, as an experienced Jefferson collector. What do you see that would lead you to believe that it is circulated? What I see is very clean surfaces, and a high grade gem coin. My debate was 66 vs 67. Please explain what you see as circulation wear on that coin.
