Feel free to also guess the final price (it sold today via auction).

MS68 = $3000+
I think these pics are over saturated with light to hide something/things.
If not could go 67. As you didn't post slab/other pics, methinks the former.
Edit: did the description read ....
It was a Great Collections auction and they have standard titles/descriptions.
Also, last call before the reveal....
It's not my photo. I used the photo from the auction house (Great Collections).
All of their photos are fairly consistent (at least in my opinion).
I thought it looked like a 66/66+ and the final price seemed to reflect that ($258.75).
I've been looking for a clean 65 so this one appealed to me. However, I decided the price was a bit high (since 66s are going for under $200 lately and 66+ examples have sold for around the same price). Also, the color around the rims isn't my favorite (I'd prefer blast white or something more colorful). Still I believe the buyer will enjoy the coin. And if someone cracks it and receives a 67, then it will be a win (as would a Gold CAC sticker).
I think 66 is a real possibility. However, that would likely result in a lower price. A new holder 66 would be seen as the right grade or maxed out. Meanwhile the older holder with the lower grade adds more intrigue and allure.
If I had won this coin, I would not have cracked it or resubmitted it.
I think MS66+ and MS67 are a possibility, If I owned it, I would definitely crack it and resubmit.
