I have a couple of questions first. On the reverse there is what looks like a mark under the 4th pillar. Is this a break in the steps or is it simply something I'm adding to the image? Plus between the 1st and 2ond pillar there is another separation in the steps it looks like the second step. And according to the reg # can you tell me what year was this coin graded or there abouts?
I wouldn't worry about the streak. It has nothing to do with the grade.
) but I'll say they said MS-66 FS.
How do you guys know from looking at this coin that it is uncirculated?
I would love any help you guys can provide.
That being said, I don't think it was any of the above. While the fields are pretty clean, there is a nasty hit on Jefferson's jaw, not to mention the chatter on his forehead.
On the reverse, there are nasty black copper spots. I've turned down dozens of extremely nicely toned coins just because I've found these "flyspecks." There's nothing you can do about them, and they only get worse with time.
I grade it an MS-64-ick.
Let the ridicule begin!
middle steps look weak at least in the photo.
Reverse to front?
Is that struck thru in hair?
The jaw would grade 66+ comparing to my coins but mine has more there and another nick on the front.
