AU-55. Eye Appeal 9/10. Superb example, especially considering the lack of cleaning and only a few spots that have NOT corroded.

Don't often disagree with mox, but I'm at EF-45 as well, choice for grade. Very nice.

It might be a little light strike on obverse. But look at that reverse. There is virtually no evidence of anything but the slightest circulation.

Always drives me nuts when Frog beats me with a mox-stick.

I will take a shot straight 'down the middle', from those who have gone before me.
AU50.

The reverse is what helped me grade this one. Paying close attention to the leaves and the tips of the hair show a majority strike weakness on the obverse with little wear, while the reverse is decently struck up and shows evidence of light rub, but nowhere near the EF range.

With respect, mox (), the reverse may be a tad better (except K4-5), but many of the leaf veins show wear in the middle to my eye. This coin just doesn't "look" AU to me.

Serious fun grading with you folks. Especially when you explain your thoughts and opinions.

I learn, too, which is even better.
