Here are the not so close ones.  I think it may have graded low.  Any opinion on if it may pass CAC muster?

Just from these photos I would think it has a decent chance to bean.

@The Neophyte Numismatist: to the ever-lasting consternation of strict constructionists who expect, nay, demand I hew the line on the Forum, I respectfully direct you to the column marked OFF TOPIC using this undeniably beautiful coin as a pretext for discussing a little-known aspect of penological history...

@tigerbait:  There is much more to this coin than meets the eye. If and when its formal grade is declassified, I believe this coin would be a good candidate for Guess the Grade.  What say you?  (shrug)

Hey, what happened to the eagle's tail feathers?  :baiting: :)

They do look a bit weak. Don’t have this in hand yet, so I can’t say for sure if it is from the lighting in the pics or if they just didn’t strike up well. We shall see.

I don't collect them but who knows? A very respectable grade and a really gorgeous reverse!
