    What do you think? This is a true-view, fresh from PCGS.

    This is a tricky one for me. Left brain says MS64. Right brain says MS64FBL if they forgave the marks on the lower left lines because of the strong reverse strike.
    Final answer: MS-64FBL.

    I think the color pushes this to MS65 FBL

    Enough marks to keep it at 64 unless it gets a color bump

    Thanks for the guesses and I certainly agree with y'all. Unfortunately, PCGS did not, Unc-cleaned. I submitted 15 coins and this was the only one I felt was worthy of a true-view. Thought it was a lock for 65 and had a small chance to go fbl. I sure wish that when they details grade a coin that they'd give a clue what they saw.

    I'm at a 63, no FBL. That reverse scratch is a killer for me and despite the great color in the toning I don't see how it can be over looked.

    64 and definitely FBL through PCGS

    65. It got the color bump.

    I think no way FBL. The hit across two lines circled in white plus the scrapes in the red circle. Either damage eliminates the FBL, IMO. Nice Coin though, sorry it got the cleaned body bag. Could be the lines in the left field on the obverse... Polish_20200811_103902646.png

    Pity. I think it's worthy of the '65, and if you're amiable (with deep enough pockets) it might be worthwhile of a re-submit..........
