    Bingo!!! Thanks @furham ...... The point being to judge our grading prowess against the real pros.

    Does "Eventually" mean you're sending it within the next month or year. Considering the probable backlog @ TPG's, we won't see it for a year?

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm releasing my grasp of the rope. I won't hang that long.

    AU to MS 60 tops. Carbon spots are a capper on grade.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I was wondering.

    If you don't want to make the effort to provide good info when asking a question, why would you expect CT members to make an effort to answer them?

    BTW: what do you think a TPG would grade this?

    Excellent point. I have no argument with that. Will mentally notate this fact and stop being lazy....

    I don't see it as a proof. Nice detail, but are those scratches under the date? I can't tell from the picture.

    Yeah it does have 2 small patches of scratches on the obverse and some obvious carbon spotting too, but neither are enough for a details grade in my opinion but who knows....I've seen details grades for literally nothing and straight graded coins covered in verdigris so you never really know with these people...

    Some of those "copper spots" look like actual pits in the coin's surface (especially the ones on the rim under the date).

    Between those, the scratches under the date, and the damage under IN, I can't imagine that this coin would straight-grade. It's not even a candidate for the much-maligned "rare date bump".

    The angled photos make the coin look like it has friction in the fields, hence the abundance of AU grades being offered. And I admit, AU55 was my first instinct as well. But given your repeated insistence that the coin is BU, and the last photograph of the reverse which doesn't seem to show any wear, I will say MS62. The surfaces appear pretty clean, but the spotting is sure to suppress the grade.

    That's the most stupid thing you have ever posted.

    Saying this coin is AU from a handful of my sub-par pictures, when I will bet my life it will grade UNC w/ or w/o details especially having never seen the coin in person was much more stupid. But you say a lot of negative things on here. I wonder what type of person you are in real life......I would love to find out. I thrive on exploiting hateful humans.

    Based on those photos you posted, there is clear wear. Wear=not MS. This coin has wear. Not a lot, but some. Unless you can provide photos that show otherwise that’s the opinion you are going to get from most members.

    oh, and it’s not a proof.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    If you knowingly post sub par pictures, what kind of information where you expecting to get from the members on coin talk? If you refuse to post good pics, then you should refrain from criticizing the opinions of others when they are actually trying to help. Actions like that can easily put you in the troll category.

    The first sentence is legit, which AGAIN I absolutely agree with.

    But in what reality is calling something someone said "the most stupid thing you have ever posted" helpful in any way? I would love to hear your delusional logic behind this. Maybe you should refrain from not thinking clearly?

    Problem is you are notorious for posting photos to fit your narrative. I don't believe any of them. You have been asked for clear photos since you started. Yet you only provide them in benefit of yourself. Yeah, it probably sucks to think such a thing but hey, one day you will get it. AU55

    I'm not defending specific statements. In your posts 8 and 9, you said that members are delusional and must be drunk when they have given you honest opinions based on your sub par pictures.

    Once again, I'm asking how could a knowledgeable numismatist expect to get worthwhile opinions regarding the grade of a coin when they admitted that they posted sub par pics and were too lazy to take the coin out of the 2x2? Or, are just trolling this site?

    Just another of your threads saying you have a matte proof. All talk and no proof. I posted the truth about your coin. You are making it clear that you know nothing about coins. If you wish to come at me, feel free. Few on this site believe anything you say.

    You are correct. Just a troll. I don't believe he even owns any coins. Just here to mess with folks. Probably someone that got the boot in the past and has a bone to pick. On the positive side, it gives us something to laugh about.
