AU 55; maybe 58 on a push.

Lot's of details (dings, scratches, verdigris, possible cleaning or rubbing damage) and obverse rim wear at 11 o'clock.

I'd say AU58 obverse and AU53 reverse unless the loss of detail on the shield can be attributed to poor strike.

AU-50. I think the shield weakness is due to the way it was struck.
Rest in Peace

I would say AU-50. Not enough luster to go higher, but nice looking coin.

Just a bit of wear on the feather tips and reverse high points.

VERY nice, natural appearing color on this coin! (Just a touch of verdi-gris to take care of...)
