Nice strike, but a few significant hits on the obverse. I'm leaning towards MS-63.

Walkers seem to get hit hard for contact marks. This one looks solid for 63.
Pretty nice prize, in any case!

I have an MS-63 Walker.
But this one has a much sharper strike - probably from newer dies.

As you all know I am not very good at grading, but I was at MS63 before I read the other members grades, so I am getting a bit better at this grading thing

MS-64 was my first thought...but with a little bit more luster...I could run with 64+
The reverse carries her!

Beautiful coin. Your photos show the surfaces better IMO and highlight the obverse skirt hits. I'm at MS63.
