Hi all :)   My dad has a small circulated collection of flying eagle cent, large cent, half cent, two cent, three cent, half dime, etc. But no twenty cent so I got this for a birthday present for him.  I struggle with grading, especially circulated.  I was thinking XF, possibly AU50?  Or am I being optimistic?  For what it's worth I paid 250.

My two photograde cheat sheets didn't include the twenty cent piece, but I stared at coins closely with the same obverse and reverse features so long that I need a nap. I'm seeing 35 to 40, but, the weak strike issue is one where I think they have a slight forgiveness on grading, so I think your right, maybe XF45. I wouldn't even give my newbie opinion, but I put a full hour into it, so there it is. The REAL evaluators will follow shortly. PS.. Take care of that 1880 S lady!

It pains me to use this term, but, go to the PGCS home page, -resources,- at the bottom of the page is the photograde option. Pick your coin. I'm glad I could tell about the photo grade, but I'm really not qualified to give a grade opinion yet like I did above. I thought others would've chimed in by now, oh well. You and I together can use our imagination, probably end up MS69 proof by the time we discuss it! Your dad is a lucky man.Later......

I think maybe it IS MS.  These are commonly weak strike and I think it's just very dark toning concealing BU luster.  ;)   Dad was very happy!  Thanks for your help guys
