The first pictures are of a 1940 S, nice coin, probably unc.
To me that is XF because of the flatness on the chest.
My first reaction was that it has wear, but check the date: 1940 S!
Aside from the 1941 S, 1942 S and the 1943 S, the 1940 S (I believe) is one of the worst strikes.
You can't compare them to the Phillies or Denver from the same time period.
It doesn't look so flat in the hand. I've tried a few times to photo this coin and its the hardest coin I've ever photoed. The color is slightly yellow compared to the real thing. The actual coins are very white with some decent shine.
Where is the mint mark?
Look by the edge, next to the eagle. Very nice walker. Feathers have very nice detail IMO. :thumb:
This one looks closest to the actual coin in hand.
I saw an 'S' i the photo's as well ... dont you see it ?
Now that I know where ti look for it.
I'd go along with ya Frank except for the color variation on the high points - I have to say AU on this one.
