    I took a risk on this one buying it sight unseen because the price was very good and I impulse bought. I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

    I voted 40. I like the look of the coin. the dark diagonal line on the rev. might be from a rubber band.

    I really would like to say 50, but I'm not seeing luster to justify it. That and the amount of high-point wear leads me to a 45, but a very nice 45. :)

    My green horn guess is 40

    45 to 50, if there is any luster left

    There is some luster in hand that has a blueish hint to it, especially on the obverse. I'm not sure if I'm 100% happy with this one, but for the price, I'll happily set it into my US Type Set and maybe decide to upgrade it down the road.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    45? Really? That is 10 points higher than I would grade it...

    I guess you and I are in the minority. There are a lot of dings on her face/ears and on the reverse. I'd have honestly given it an XF40 if I saw it raw.

    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    Nice natural looking coin, have a good look at the first 8 and the 9 looks to be a repunch. Nothing in cpg on this date,however when enlarged I see something .

    I thought it was a solid XF45. Now way I could call it an AU

    Looks like a nice '45 to me. Too much wing wear for the '50 nod.

    I went 40 due to the weak strike/ wear on the wing tips. Obverse a solid 45
