    A complete guess, I have no idea how to grade uncirculated gold. I know the TPG's are more forgiving of marks due to the softness of the metal. The coin is pretty clean but I think there are just enough abrasions to keep it from the gem level. I say MS64+.

    These are hard to grade in hand but at least your photo is good.

    Wish we had more votes! It's indeed a 64+ and one I'm interested in picking up. It's pretty borderline 65, that is for sure.

    Here is the link on HA: 1912 $5 MS64+ PCGS Secure. CAC.... Indian Half Eagles

    Here is a '64' non cac non pcgs secure: 1914 $5 MS64 PCGS.... Indian Half Eagles

    My guess was MS64, glad to see I kinda got it right.
    These can be a real toughie to grade, especially from photos.

    No doubt that they are one of the hardest coins to grade (along with the quarter eagles). I like the design of them.

    I'm hoping to pick it (or another that is up for auction) up, but I really would like a '65. Going to see what happens in a couple of weeks....

    I think you might be able to get an upgrade on that one. It's a looker so you might just have your 65 already
