    Just an aside......I wonder what it was that John (Milton) detected upon my example as to keep the coin from grading higher. Fodder for another thread perhaps.

    Carry on.......:)

    Next, we have a 1946 S WLH in a PCGS MS-66 holder. The images are a work in progress, but this is what I have so far.

    Nothing untoward. I'd say solid green.

    Very clean walker. The question is should it be a grade higher at MS 67? I'll stick to a green bean but a gold isn't out of the question.

    Nice 66. Yes to a green sticker.

    There's a spot on the sun with some light scuff there, too. The strike isn't strong, and unlike a 40-S, 46-S comes well struck. Also a bunch of ticks in the middle of the coin on both sides. I'll say no sticker.

    Nice 66 46-S Walker I believe it will CAC. A really nice lustrous superb gem. The spot on sun a minus. Would call it a B 66.

    I often see walkers with either a spectacular obverse or reverse. Seldom with both in spectacular shape. I believe it would go a grade higher. I vote gold sticker.

    I say YES for a Green sticker.

    It looks appropriate for the 66 grade (with the only worrisome part being the hit on the sun).

    Sunspots are natural!

    I will keep things moving with the reveal. I have yet to attempt full slab shots, so I will use the seller's image.

    Solid green. Too many little marks for gold

    It does have a lot of marks but seems borderline MS63. I'd agree with a green bean.
