I would take the bottom one (86). It looks brighter and corners look sharper.

I like the top one better due to centering and lack of print
marks. The print circle next to his ear on the 86 was the
first thing I looked at and it bothered me. The corners on
the 84 are nice enough to accept it more. Same with the
overall color.

84 due to cleaner surface, not as many print flaws. Send those two in again and the grades might switch. They're that close.

I have also been leaning towards the 84 due to all of the reasons mentioned above (print spots, center, surface)

I think the top left corner is the only thing keeping it from a higher grade

Really close. I prefer the one on the bottom at first glance and even more when I take a closer look. The tilt on the top one is a real turn off to me.

Thats what caught me too was the tilt on the top one. Then i read everyone replies..notice the spot by the ear on the bottom one.
The top one, looks a little darker in color and the left edge is not as clean/sharp compare to the bottom

I call it a toss up. Each time I looked, I was swapping between the two. I would like the 86 better for its attributes, but then the print defects would sent we over to the 84. Like I said, flip a coin.
