The flips will get easier to handle if you flatten the staples with pliers. I do that. A lot of coin people just use flat-clinch staplers, but I prefer to plier my own. Either way, the objective is so they don't get hung up on things, especially each other.

Nice FFr5, doesn't look circulated or trashed by a bad cleaning, tone is a realistic color, probably grade in the low MSes. My Krause has it for about $65 in MS-60. If dealers are likely to pay a quarter of Krause, and likely to charge half Krause or more, you'd be looking at retail of $35-40. Might be better due to the lack of wear and absence of the usual abuses. Whether the edge ding visible on the reverse at 1:00 would torpedo all that is a question worth considering, though.
