Hello,

Here to get some inputs.

1. Bid on ebay with ok quality photos. Won at $1,891
2. Got the coin in hand and was able to see up in close.
3.Tied my best to take pics - excuse me if its not professional

Is this really a MS 64? is it over graded? Should I return it?
Tried comparing some coins sold at HA and GC, not able to conclude. Need a some inputs please.

This is my first No Motto DE for my gold type set in lower MS grades (62 to 64). My other "Motto" Saint is MS 65 common date.

I can't judge the coin's quality from those images, but the price paid is very reasonable.

It seems quite reasonable to me, was there anything significantly different in hand from the photos on the listing?

TOTAL NEWBIE, makes no sense and seems very paradoxical and counter-intuitive.

Is it a very lame attempt at sarcastic humor??

FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.

It is decent but not high end imho and the price reflects it. It has quite a few hits and the color is a bit dark. I would call it an average to below average 64. Sorry....jmho.

It seems about typical, going only by the photos. You paid an appropriate price for it.

As usual compare with images online at auctions; a 64 should be near gem with some detractions preventing the gem grade.

I personally think it's a nice coin and agree with Mark: if you like it, the $$$ paid are very fair.

Here is my 1907 "low relief" $20 gold which is in an MS-65 holder.



To be frank, I'm not a fan of the coin you are considering because the high points look dull to me. It might be a matter of what the old time dealers called "envelope friction." I think that you might be able to find a piece with a bit more luster and life to it.

Of course I'm basing this observation on a photo, and a different photo might give the coin a different look. But that's my impression from the information available.

I think the reverse put it at the 64 level but I do feel the obverse is a 63. It may look much different in hand giving it a solid 64 but that is up to you.
