$5 Liberty Gold Coins MS 65

Grade Definition

MS 65 is the contraction for the denotation "Mint State Grade 65". This grade is part of the Sheldon coin grading system. Dr. Sheldon, who was a Psychologist as well as a numismatist, created this scale in 1949 to be applied to grading U.S. Large Cents, but his work was adapted to the grading of all U.S. coinage. Few coins as old and soft as a $5 Liberty gold coin (Gold is a very soft metal, similar in hardness to lead) are awarded the MS 65 designation, and a coin in this condition is rare, and valuable.

Specifics of the Grade

A $5 Liberty gold coin in MS 65 came from the U.S. Mint as a coin of high strike quality. Not all coins are minted to equal standards. Any minting or strike anomalies will require at least low magnification to see. A $5 Liberty gold coin of this grade will have a very fair amount of "Mint luster" or golden shine to it which is beautiful and  pleasing to the eye. Any marks or scratches will be minute and few.
