The second photo on the obverse makes it look A lot better but still not a 65 how did the reverse pic look with the holder

Photos of slabbed coins are made under very restrictive lighting conditions, so getting a good image is difficult. The slab also limits sharpness and contrast. All the defects visible in the initial photos are also visible in the full-slab photos, so nothing was hidden. If someone wanted to pay $10k for the coin, that's their choice.

I could not bring myself to bid on this one. Too much contact/damage on the obverse at liberty and the dig on the reverse was not good. IMO is was over-graded. On the other hand, the price was way below market so the bidders were mindful of the coin and not the holder.
