Looks like it has low to mid AU sharpness, but the toning really affects the eye appeal. I wonder if this might benefit from some conservation.

I'm with Zurie on this one. AU53 maybe AU55. the toning makes it challenging to assess but the sharpness of the lettering and highest device areas are all pointing to mid AU. I think its a good price and would be a TPG candidate especially if it pulled a 55

Looks like a nice original example and a hint of blue toning around the date. The photos are not showing any luster. The obverse looks 45 and the reverse looks 53. This one may be better than seller's photos show.

I can't get a good feel on grade from these pics. (Seller's pics, I presume?) I'll wait for your in-hand pics. I have a sneaking suspicion this one may look quite a bit better in hand than the pics suggest.

When this critter comes in, would you be willing to shoot a closeup of the mm? It's fuzzy when I enlarge it, but there's a chance you may have D/D North (FS-501). I think I can make out the tail of an underlying mm. Not sure about a premium for this RPM, but it might be nice to know.

Very hard to grade from these photos. Might be a nice EF-45 in hand.

I still can't decide, I'm not changing my grade though it's either an EF45 or an AU50 very nice, I can't tell the Mintmark from that photo though, way too blurry.

I think there's too much detail for this to be XF. I'm still at AU-53 or 55, but not the greatest eye appeal.

Looking at the new pics, I think it makes AU-50. The toning is blotchy, especially on the obverse near the head, and hurts eye appeal a bit.

Here's my marking on your mm pic:


The mm is blurry, but suggests a "tail" beneath the center of the D. If so, it would be the remnant of curved portion of the original mm. Here's FS-501 for comparison.
