Uncirculated, or Mint State, coins are graded from MS60 (typical uncirculated) to MS70 (perfect). A MS66 coin may have noticeable, but very minor defects, be well-struck, have above average luster and eye appeal.

How much is a ms66 1908 saint gualdens 20 dollar nomoto gold coin worth?

To set things straight and so that you can find your coin when doing searches, that's ST GAUDENS and NO MOTTO. Numismedia lists a retail fair market value of an MS66 no-motto St. Gaudens double eagle at roughly $3800 for a Philadelphia coin, and 10 times that for a Denver coin. In any case you need to be sure that your coin has been certified by one of the major grading services. MS66 is a stratospheric level for a coin and only a trained expert can assign that grade reliably.

What does MS66 mean on a 1908 V nickel?

MS66 is a grade of a coin, rather than a mark on a coin."MS" stands for Mint State, meaning the coin looks like it did when it was first minted. "66" is a numerical gradation within the broad category of Mint State. For MS coins, the numerical grade can be anywhere from 60, the minimum acceptable condition for Mint State, to 70, meaning an absolutely perfect coin. Very few coins rate even 68 let alone 70, so an MS66 nickel would appear to be brand-new and in addition would be quite sharp and well-struck. As of 08/2015 the retail value for a 1908 nickel in that condition would be around $2600.

What does MS66 mean in silver dollars?

In coin grading terminology "MS" stands for "mint state" or the state a coin is in when minted and uncirculated. Showing no signs of wear or indication of circulation. MS is interchangeable with "uncirculated". Although MS coins have no wear from circulation they may have varying imperfections from the minting process. To allow for that, the "MS" coins are graded on a scale beginning with 60 and going up to 70 (this is the highest number, which indicates supposed "perfection"). So MS66 would mean a "mint state" or uncirculated coin graded 66 out of a possible 70 on the grading scale. A very nice coin.

What is the value of a 1958 Silver Dollar?

I assume you have a Canadian dollar, because the USA did not issue any dollar coins in 1958. Your coin is worth about $5, mostly due to its silver content. Well if the coin is circulated about $12, I have seen uncirculated MS66's go for $100 USD. But I would keep it as a keepsake. The Totem pole on the reverse of this coin, upset the native Americans. The symbol on the totem included a sign meaning "Death to the Tribe." This particular Canadian coin, has since been known as "The Death Dollar." _______________________________________________ I assume the above answer was prior to Silver going up. The silver content alone is now around $20.00
