Wondering what the consensus is in the impact of the 2 small hits or pits (hard to tell from the picture) would have on the overall grade. Seller is reputable and has this listed as an AU.

That's a pretty low quality scan. I can't really make out the detail in the hair or the leaves on the reverse. The crown appears to have excellent detail -- enough to even go UNC. However, I've got no idea about the lustre on this coin so who knows.

Could be anywhere from XF - UNC, but is most likely an AU-55.

Thanks... this is the best they can do apparently for a scan... hard to make a final call but that helps.

I am seeing a mark above the A in Gratia, to the right side the are and I in Victoria, marks below the hair at the back of the neck, quite a few marks near the lower part of the neck, these are on the obverse. On the reverse, near the top left about 11 o'clock, on the rim, there appears to be something, the rest of the surface looks busy, that is, it has been around the block. I agree with not being able to see the lustre, as to AU, there would have to be clearer pics.
