That’s a nice example . I would buy it if I needed it. I paid 85.00 for a graded 63 in a old Anacs holder . It looks borderline 64 to me . I paid 59 for a raw one that came back 63 so about the same with grading and attribution. Your coin looks 63 to me.

Gentle reminder that discussion of pricing should be in the "What's it Worth" forum.

Yes. It looks like an early die state example. The "E" looks well pronounced, since it fades lighter as the die progresses. Plus, any "E" reverse in mint state is or should be a $100 plus VAM.

Fairly common in 62/3 but i personally love the clashing & E rev which
says to me worth your stated pickup price all day long
Nice to have Dennis keeping some sales records

As JB says= This question/post is for Buy/Sell board
Just remember this next time
