I am going to assume that the breaks in the luster on the reverse (buffalo's shoulder) are just scanner artifacts and say this is a 63.

Its a nice MS-64 but I don't think its Gem material. Fields look clean but way too many small hits on the high points. I'd be surprised if NGC gave it MS-65. I hope I'm wrong... good luck!

Gpnyc, with some of the coins I've seen in NGC holders, there's a chance it will go 65. For some reason they seem a bit "loose" on their Buffalo grading. Do you agree?

Could be just me though. Just my experience.

The strike looks great! It looks like an EF-AU in my opinion
