I am conflicted on this coin, but I know the collective knowledge here may provide some insight. The coin is so small its hard to tell on the cartwheel effect. Its in pretty good shape so may have been able to retain some original luster - its toned on the obverse, and slightly on the reverse. I also see no muck on it, which does not bode well. It does not appear to have been wiped or scrubbed, but I can't tell on the dipped question. Thoughts and TY. If so, I guess sometimes you get got.

The coin appears to have had an old cleaning and then toned. I like the overall look of the coin, but the hairlines on the reverse are a bit distracting. The coin is showing some wear.

Can't tell from those images.
The lighting and focus prevent me from making an assessment.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Looks like an older cleaning now with some album tone.

I'd say for the amount of wear there should be more dirt. Makes me think a bit of cleaning at one time.
