Thanks for sharing your coin. Not ignoring your request for a grade, just have no idea how to grade these. Someone knowledgeable will come along.

If there is pitting, then that would warrant a details grade. From the fuzzy photos, it just looks like spotty toning. Corroded and pitted silver halves are seldom seem. It would've been most likely a type of acid to eat at the coin.

Grade wise, I see AU-53, typical strike for this issue.

Close-up of the lower reverse would help.

Here is a website for more info on these coins.

I have several of these and I think the quality has suffered because so many were minted -- Though yours does look like mostly toning [as was mentioned].

Actually it does not appear to be pitted. Here is the picture you requested Coinfrog.

Slight rub is visible on the high points. I'm at AU55, I don't see evidence of pitting but plenty of spotty toning.

Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

I'd net it out around EF. Possibly a bit of environmental damage but I don't think it's serious.
