I am trying to test my ability to grade some LMC within my collection. Below is a 1968 LMC that I think is an AU58 but it may make MS. I also believe the color to be RB.I would appreciate your opinion on this coin grade and color. I trying to improve images. I hope these are good enough to offer an opinion.

Thank you,

Chris

It's a worn die. The light markings on the obverse high spots could be wear or light finger printing. Hard to tell. So low is AU58. And High is MS62Red. The color balance is off, I think. Making it look a bit more washed out than it probably is.

Lots of abrasions, the fields are well worn.

I would say typical strike for a 68-P .You have very small issues here and there not to mention what looks like the starting of a hole on reverse above Lincolns head .
Not sure if it will even make an AU-58 .

Thanks, all.
To me, it shows no obvious signs of being cleaned.There is no hole above Lincoln's head. Under a magnifying glass it appears to be a slight rise in the surface as if there was a very slight dent in the die at the ceiling.
It's time I work on improving my images. When I get improved images I will check back with you.
