AU55/58 range to these old eyes.

Looks like it circulated a few days and was then put away for 130 years!

Nice coin!

Ouchies, a lot of contact marks. I think this coin had a bit of circulation, handled by Edward Scissorhands. AU-58PL

MS-60PL could be argued, either way the coin doesn't have much eye appeal.

Edit: Minor grammar change.

It's hard to believe this didn't circulate slightly.

AU58 PL

I would say too many scratches for AU-58, so AU-55.

Mid-AU and probably PL. I'm sure this one looks really nice in person.

first though was MS62PL. the cheek area is giving me pause to think its a slider. this year is known for weak strikes so the ear and breast are typical for strike

Using the two completely different looking photos of the obverse and reverse created a problem for me. The fields look damaged somehow to me. The Eagles breast has severe damage. AU something. Not a fan of this one.

The weak strike above the ear might make the coin look AU but its Uncirculated grade is belied by the Phrygian cap and the clean cheek.

This coin has a weak central strike in general, resulting in the flat breast and ear hair with no detail.

I can see an AU argument as well based on contact marks and surface abrasions, but those are also not inconsistent with bag handling, and in addition, prooflike coins by their nature tend to show up marks and light scratches much more than non-prooflike coins.
