Re: help on grade please!!!!

very tough to grade this series, and doubly so via a photo. With your caveat of strong luster, I would be inclined to say it could reach a grade of ms-64.

I HATE buying these things raw. I have coins that I purchased as MS, only to come back in 58 or even 55 holders. A year or two later, resubmitting these coins (cracked out) has drawn MS grades. I don't know of any experts in this series as far as grading, yet some services are more consistent than others.

Nickel is an extremely strong metal.and should find marks in the field, this is pretty much a sure sign of circulation. Strikes are often weak (yours is better than average). Luster is very important. I have found portrait wear to be often misleading on this series.

Good luck.
