Trying to grade this, just for fun. Got distracted by the reverse (See the weak O and the UM in UNUM stretched to the rim)
Also the L in LIBERTY is doubled a bit ( Machine Doubling)

I give it AU-50. What do you think?

Nice full ear, traces of luster - I'll say AU-55 or even 58.

I'm with Coinfrog, au55 or possibly au58, nice coin. Guessing the third photo is more color accurate.

Thanks everyone.
Here is a photo taken in daylight, next to a newish Lincoln Memorial cent.
It shows the color well enough. The obverse is slightly darker than the reverse.

I'm glad you posted different lighting photos. I would have graded the coin differently using only the first set or even the 2nd set. I'm using the last photos for the overall look of the coin which I think is more what the coin looks like in hand

obv strike is a little mushy and reverse has grease strike through areas. I think its in the AU55 range
