    Howdy folks!

    Been a bit busy at work past few weeks; and I haven't had an opportunity to pick up anything new... until today :) Behold this 116 year old beauty!

    There's a pretty mean nick on the reverse (between the ends of the wreath) and a few minor dings on Liberty's cheek, but I'm looooovin' the way this coin looks. What do you think?

    Edit- PCGS slabbed, TrueView photo

    Grade? 63? That looks like a TPG photograph with a blank background. Definitely pro photography.

    Marks notwithstanding, that's a beautiful coin. It would definitely meet my personal standards.

    I'll go with 64 but could see it in a 65 holder. Nice coin.
    Edit. I'll go with 65.

    64 net graded, because of the nick, but looks much more like a 65.

    hehe Well I guess I am the lone wolf
    AU58/MS62 - Especially with the hits and the rim ding and flattish hair.
    Nice attractive coin though

    Certainly higher than 62. Lower than 67... An absolutely gorgeous lady... So when’s the reveal?

    You're doing it wrong. :p
    When in doubt, wait until the reveal and write the same grade as on the holder plus something like "this was my grade before the reveal" :D

    I think 64 and a strong one. Nick keeps it from gem. But it’s close
