Rest of pics
EDIT on pic #1 you can see the slight bag mark on the cheek.
I don't think you have anything to worry about, it's hardly noticeable. And besides, I've seen MS66 graded coins have small marks on them. I have a few lincolns myself with tiny nicks and marks.
Here's an MS65FB that I own...
At any rate, a 65FB '45-S isn't really worth getting slabbed with a value under $100...
Ah, yes, in that case, slab that sucker. Nice find, what did you pay for it, out of curiosity?
I talked him down to $460. It was in an ICG slab as MS65 FSB. These pics were taken after I cracked them out and put them in a 2X2. Leigh, Ill try to get better pics tomorrow. It has great luster and a really nice cartwheel effect. The only marks I can see are a slight bag mark ( visible in pic 1) and a very slight mark on the neck that looks like 2 pin pricks. The reverse is one of the best I've ever seen with a few faint hairlines on the very top of the bands. The diagonal bands have no marks that I can see which is very common in this series.
I'd say, based on the pics, it's a 64 at best.
Try the same technique only use a digital camera, like an easyshare or something, and zoom in a bit.
