    Let us know how you like the strike/luster/eye-appeal and surface condition.
    Obviously, this is not a problem coin... and again, poll closes after 7 days.

    I voted 66-FSB. IMO, this is not really a FB coin, as there is some flatness in the bands, but PCGS doesn't have the same standards I do. ;) . Strike looks excellent. Luster looks great on the reverse, but harder to get a read on the obverse. As far as eye appeal goes, I like it, but the obverse toning is much darker than I like. For that reason, I would probably pass on buying the coin myself, but I do think it's a nice coin.

    The darkness and the toning make this one difficult. It looks on par with 66s I have sent in. Not FB.

    67 no FSB. Clean surfaces. No marks at normal magnification. Strong luster. Attractive toning. Choice gem coin.

    Reverse shows at least 2 if not 3 breaks across the bands. No FSB.

    65 FB

    ~Toning/ eye appeal looks nice (I'm guessing the dark part on the obverse is just a shadow and in hand it's lighter)
    ~Luster appears strong (based on how I'm interpreting the photo)
    ~Strike is solid
    ~Cheek area appears to have some grazes, which would have kept it out of a 66/67 holder
    ~FB is borderline, but I think it just made it

    I was at 66 no FB, but I do think the luster is a bit lacking. Should’ve maybe gone 65.

    I am not qualified to grade modern coins....but will venture a grade of 65 and with very pretty luster. If I collected these, that is what I would chose.

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

    Gorgeous color on that coin, and the luster looks strong. It is not FSB. Based on the whispy marks I see I guessed 65, but I could easily see this in a 66 holder.

    Personally, I find the toning overripe. Solid strike. No FSB. MS 66.

    I shoulda gone higher, as I'm low at 64FSB. Nice coin!

    I don’t see anything holding this coin back. The surfaces are clean, luster looks strong, and eye appeal is excellent. I see slight bridging on middle bands that should preclude FB designation so my guess is MS67.

    I'm the First at 67 FB I guess. I dont see a whole lot holding this coin down.
