PCGS is generally hard on these minor coins in zink.  This here is no exception. This specimen is problem-free, even using a strong glass, and is exceptionally well struck for these.  There is an unusually strong charcoal lustre and no corrosion.  But even at "only" MS63, none have been...

Wow! Fully struck from unworn dies with cartwheel lustre. A light scratch behind the head (which you can only see if you catch the light just right!) is all that keeps this coin from being at least an MS65.   There are lovely, light, original patches of pewter/grey toning, and the...

A lovely "white" coin with beautifully sharp contrast and nice, deep mirrors.  Some faint traces of haze in the fields (and I mean REALLY faint!), are all that keeps this coin from being slabbed a couple grades higher.  Even a picky collector will like this one!

Although lightly cleaned at some point long ago, leaving faint hair-lines, these have since virtually disappeared under a rich amber / reddish-brown toning.  The details are razor-sharp. One can't think of any currency coins in Proof as "common", but the 1911 is FAR scarcer than the first...

You'll need a glass to see what keeps this coin from being graded higher, and even WITH a glass, you'll see the contact points blending into the beard.  Nice contrast with somewhat proof-like fields make this coin fully deserving of its "+".

A lovely Proof well worthy of the CAM grade; the reverse is a full DCAM!  A very faint area of slight dullness just behind the King's head is all that holds this coin back from at least one grade higher. Nevertheless, this is one of the finest ever graded and may well remain the finest...

What a neat coin! Problem-free with satiny obverse, the reverse with nice reflectivity.  Some tiny nicks which blend nicely into the hair and beard, are all that keep this coin from at least MS65+. Delicate greyish toning in the incription on the obverse sets the portrait off nicely.  On...

No problems with this coin, just a few very minor and well scattered contact marks.  With its booming lustre and sharp strike, I don't know why this coin didn't get a "+"; it certainly deserves it!

This is a rock-solid MS63.  There is the usual light scattering of bag-marks, but these are mostly so tiny as to be invisible to the naked eye.  The rims are unusually problem-free and the lustre is a good bit brighter than shown in the PCGS file photo. These coins DID circulate, so...

The "+" button must have gotten lost under the table when they graded this one.  I can see no reason why this lovely little coin didn't get one!  Fully struck detail on slightly reflective mirrors brings out a nice contrast with full, sweeping lustre.  The only contact marks on this coin...
