This one's nice. It is a nice AU58. It has started to turn, toning(patina) and note the contact marks (RED) and the light chatter (YELLOW) A nice clean example, this is pushing into MS range, but just not quite.

I have to disagree with Crazy on this one.

There is no rub at high points, although the reverse has a weaker strike, and their is no luster disturbance in the fields. I see no hints of circulation, but it has a lot of hits.

MS 63.

AU-62, it's pretty typical for the issue. I look for a strong STATES OF and obverse shoulder. Even the top graded PCGS examples show weakness:

This is the best one I've been able to find over my collecting history - and I've searched thousands of them including OBW rolls. For me, STATES OF and the memorial steps are very important. They are also difficult to find without weakness in the hair (flatness).
