VF-30 sharpness, but reduced to VF-20 toning issues and the mark on the neck. This coin would not get a grade from a front line third party grader
Rest in Peace

VF-35. The darker adhesion on the topmost design elements on the obverse might be removed very easily with pure acetone. Once the coloration was more monotone I believe it would show a bit better.

Light dip with the acetone, pure water wash after, air dry with slight touches of cotton but NO brushing or scrubbing.

pure water wash after,

I would not risk the pure water wash. How pure is it?
Rinse with a new solution of acetone. IMO

Best of luck - I fear this won't help too much. The spots in front of the eye and above the numeral 1 may well show a non-conforming underneath even if they do lift a bit.

XF-40. I think that dark stuff will come off nicely with some acetone.

XF here too and I think it looks fine and would not attempt any cleaning.

Reverse has been damaged above the bow and above TE in STATES; obverse has hits on neck and on front of coronet/back of hair bun; porosity above head, left and right of bust, and the face has been scraped up.

My grade VF35 sharpness but would details at any TPG.
