Hey all, looking for some feed back on this Isabella Quarter. Grade? Authentic?

65, cleaned, but good chance at a straight grade is my guess

It's 1893. The pictures are so varying it's tough to assign a grade. It does look like a very nice Mint State piece.

The pictures look so different at different angles and lights. I can tell you it has exceptional cartwheel luster on both sides without break. Could this coin be cleaned and still retain that luster? Sorry for the date typo.

The reason I'm thinking it may have been cleaned is I see what could be cleaning hairlines on the reverse, and there is still debris inside some letters on the obverse. Yes, it could still have luster with a cleaning.

I'm thinking authentic (good on that) - details cleaned MS.

Perhaps whizzed? Impossible to say based on the photos provided - but it's simply 'off' enough to raise some concerns to me.

I'll say 64 straight. Beautiful example.

Authentic, but looks like two different coins. Amazing what lighting and angles can do!

If in hand it looks like the lower set of images, I'd go nice 64; but if the top MS62, dipped
