Anyone want to offer grades or vam on this

Post by JackBnimble01 » Sat Jun 20, 2020 12:46 am

If anyone wants to give a grade
Or approx value?
Just purchased from a collector
Hand picked it from an old Morgan
Book, and it was in that book since
Around 1962?

hard to say from the photo - could be anywhere from 55 to 61, possibly cleaned - breast kinda shiny. Do you have a desk lamp? if so, go read the post i just made on taking photos when asking for a grade. Is that rim damage on the obv, between the B and U? Probably cleaned - would have much more album toning otherwise if it spent that long in an album. Is there letter transfer? Looks like it could be new v3 sub. Is there doubling on the top of the 5?

Acetone will remove the grease but leaves the toning alone if it is real.

Looks like you might have an unlisted pair. Is there a letter transferred?

The pinkish color on the check came off!
And behind the cap there is evidence of something?
Don’t have the proper equipment yet

If it’s real
It will grade au50 details
If it’s not
That’s a pretty good cool coin

Beautiful specimen. Unfortunately it's been lightly cleaned (and it swam in the ezest a little too long).
Like vam-mysterio said - AU details. But at least it's not ugly.
Close up photo of the 5 in the date, area where the field meets the neck, and the hair vee would help.
In the $500-$700 range on the bay once slabbed.
