I'm looking to grade this 1881 half eagle piece. I'd say this had held up remarkably considering it's age; with the few blemishes and scratches I'd put it at an AU-50 at worst, though I'd like to know a more definitive grade for sure.

It does appear to be low AU and genuine which is the main thing. This is a common date worth roughly melt value unless it is in Mint State condition.

technically AU55 however there are quite a few more dings than it should have to warrant AU55 money. I would net this down to AU50 due to that
