Haven't been too active lately, but I've been casually picking up type set upgrades, and other things lately. I picked this one up at a recent show, at a VERY good price. Just curious on what you guys think grade wise...
Not seeing any photos in-line they do come up in a new tab (right click on the img icon).
I'll say it's maybe AU55, as I see a lot of luster on the coin, a bit more wear than I like to see on the horizontal lines in the shield (this one almost hits EF on that point alone), the strike may have been a bit weak, it's an older die (evidenced by all the die cracks). Color looks good and I don't think this one was messed with cleaning wise.
