Is it the picture, or is that wear on the curls? Weak strike area? Asking to learn.

@Earle42! Both, little low from the strike, little shining from wear.

Looks much better than some AU-58 eagles recently posted on CCF. Luster looks complete, strike is solid, only light, scattered marks, and no visible wear.
Seems like an MS-63 candidate to me. Nice type coin!

OK - next question - I thought wear on a coin meant it could not be MS. Please correct me someone.

Originally I saw this (beautiful!) coin and thought AU58 b/c of the wear. The I saw people I respect for grading opinions saying MS.

What am I missing?

Gabibacsi,
You are correct, a coin with wear shouldn't grade any higher than AU-58. However, coins with traces of "rub", "friction", or "handling" often still get an MS grade. This coin appears to have strong luster which is not impaired in the fields. It has strong detail and very few contact marks. The positive attributes are likely to overcome the possible faint wear, in terms of a TPG grading decision.
Just my opinion of course. I think it's a very nice piece.

Most ms-62 clearly used (little) what we would say gEF/aUNC in Europe. Probably, a small trace of use is allowed on PCGS as well. Look at this 1908 5 crown, MS-62, but clearly used. I bought this for gEF, but in America it is already MS. Link:
