Not a Seated dime expert, but
obv looks xf-45 to au-50 to me, wear on fingers and hair
rev looks au55 or 58

so a total grade of au-53 : )

definitely a nice coin.. is it just me or is the I and B in liberty extremely close together? normally they are close, but not touching, maybe this is a variety for this year

No worse than AU53 probably at least an AU58

AU 58 seems too close to a MS 60 coin with no wear.
Therefore, AU 53.
Rest of the coin, no significant problems. Nice coin, better than mine.

I like it for Small Stars and AU50-53. You, sir, are a winnar.
The best thing about a bicycle is that it uses no gasoline, therefore the chance of fiery death is greatly reduced.

Don't believe so, they often come like this. This is a strong strike though, so I'd say lower AU for wear, but probably net to an upper AU.
