This one is kind of interesting (at least to me). It sat in an album for many years. The obverse has toned a bluish purple while the reverse still has the original red coloring. What would you grade her?

Certainly no less. Could that be ED around the "ER" in Liberty?

Color rather than ED I'd say, Frog.

Technical Grade 58. Eye Appeal 7/10.

My MS example of this date also has those blurry letters in LIBERTY, so I think that feature is as-struck. This coin has traces of wear and friction in the fields but looks original. AU-58 seems fair, with an RB color rating.

It's a little bit difficult to assess the amount of wear under the patina, but I will go with
AU58.

It appears to have some old cameo wear at the neck truncation.

Exceptional due to it's superior condition, anyway.

Hard to tell with the toning, but I'm not seeing the wear. I'd say MS-63BN, beautiful coin!

I bought this from the president of our local coin club, he's also an EAC guy. He had it as a MS60. In hand there is no hint of wear however I can see in the pictures what could be considered as wear. Could be a product of lighting. Anyway regardless, love this coin and this date in particular. I think its an under-rated issue.

tough call discerning this one from AU and MS as soft strike is looking a lot like some wear. to me its saying MS60 which I'm basing on the field surfaces and cheek
