    Need a grade opinion please.

    So what I am struggling with is this 1912 S. Now is it MS with a weak Strike in beard and Jaw, or AU with worn beard and jaw ? Coin has very nice luster. Opinions appreciated

    I was leaning towards weak strike at first until I pulled up the reverse pic. The "PL" in PLURIBUS and the "O" in ONE lead me to believe, unfortunately that it is circulation wear though. Very nice coin and pics though!

    I'd value it as an AU58.
    It might not have much wear but it has some wear. In a technical way you could say most of what you see is the way it was struck and could be MS in the below 63 grades but still I'd call it AU.

    Never know how TPGs will grade.

    I have a PCGS 63RB 12-S, it's like a 64RD but it has one clear fingerprint that lowered it.

    I see AU58 also.
    On the obverse I see ever slight wear on the edge of the collar at the neck, not "crisp" and the same with the profile of the tie. The darker shade in the field above the date (but not in close to the devices) leads me to AU also.

    I would agree with an AU grade but mine would be 55 vs 58. Strictly my opinion. This is a very nice coin.

    Thanks everyone for your opinions. So this coin is part of my RAW Capital Plastics Board set. I am taking each coin, giving it a nice acetone bath and photographing them. I have a few that were cracked out of TPG holders and most bought raw years ago on Ebay. PCGS allows you to inventory raw coins so I am looking at the previous grades I assigned (years ago) and correcting any I think any are wrong. This was listed as an AU 55 - But I was not sure thus my posting it. So if you don't mind, I may post a couple more to help me along.
