    going to be heading into grading when I get more coins to submit.

    What do you think NGC will grade her at? I’m thinking an acetone bath is in order.

    Something looks a little weird with that S. But I would think around 45.

    I kinda figured that I didn't do enough research. Thanks for the link.

    I agree about the acetone. If some of that brown is organic matter, it will help a lot. If it's sulfides of silver, it at least shouldn't hurt it. I like it in the VF range. High in the range.

    I’m at vf 35. I think part is worn dies and strike. But I don’t see enough surface luster and too much handling for 40. And everyone has been tough lately

    I agree with Bill. Not enough luster for XF. High VF though is a reasonable grade.

    My gut says 40 - but it could grade 35 at NGC. Follow up please!

    I'll go with 40, after the acetone bath. Nice coin.

    Also VF 30. Too much wear for XF.
    However, micro S is a beauty and this is a very good coin.
    Is it going into acetone before submission?

    Yeah it will, I'll post my own pictures after I soak it.

    Got around to photographing this after the acetone bath. Way more luster than showed in the sellers pictures.

    what do you think?

    Looks like some of the grunge was organic.

    It’s weird because in hand and any other I picture I took didn’t show anything like that. Even with my 10x I don’t see the green that shows on the reverse in my pics. Might have to retake them and see if it was just an issue in editing

    I don't think it slides to XF but it looks better. Maybe I can scooch up from 30 to
    VF-35.
