It is hard to grade proofs from pictures. You need them in hand so you can look for microscopic scratches and such.

Especially when attempting to accurately assign a grade to a proof, having both diffusive and axial photos taken from distinct angles will serve to better:

Hard to tell, but imo most modern proofs will grade at least 65.
