I think the sharpness details of the coin is EF-45...but I question the glossy surfaces...kind of looks polished or wizzed...not original?
maybe better pic's w/out direct light may show her different?

Third pic shows virtually full chest feathers on the eagle. Breastplate is full in pic 4. I think is close to MS if not.

In My Opinion something is not quite right with this coin especially the obverse besides the look of being cleaned in some way . I wish it was slabbed by a reputable TPG'er .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

It looks polished or plated to me also.

AU Details Polished. Doesn't matter if cleaning lines are present, this coin has been obviously polished and no original mint surfaces remain.

What value would you put on this coin? Is it even worth grading?

Does anyone see doubling on the reverse at "UNITED" in the third photo? Might just be the camera angle as it's not prominent in photo #2 which is smaller.

Acetone would not alter a coin like this, this is polished/cleaned.
VF-20 details.

This is not a VF20 Coin.

AU Details-Cleaned/Polished

Leaving this coin in Acetone does nothing harmful.
