    Some of you may remember this thread.

    Here are some pics Merc Crazy took BEFORE I sent it off to NCS/NGC. The coin now has the green spots removed and is a bit brighter.

    Well it came back from NCS/NGC after they removed the green spots and brightened the coin a bit.

    MS66 FB! Thanks to all those who submitted their opinions and thank Merc Crazy for taking high quality pics before I sent it off to NGC. This is the coin I originally cracked out of an ICG Slab that was labeled MS65 FSB.

    Holy cow! You definitely hit it big! Not only did NCS work out for you (always a risk), but it actually got UPGRADED from an ICG slab! Congrats...nice variety!

    Thanks! I paid $480 for this coin at the coin show and spent about $100 in shipping, conservation, and grading. So yeah, I think I did all right! :)

    The upgrade to MS66 is nice, but even nicer is the FB designation.

    FB is 20 times rarer than the typical MS66.

    Price guide (and that's all it is) has a 66 worth $144 and the FB worth $1220. Cha Ching!!

    Cazkaboom One for all, all for me.

    That is such a beautiful coin. I agree with the 66 FB Designation because it is very nice even through the photos. Well done.
