AU details, lots of little pits on the obverse.

Maybe just baggy?

Unc details, does appear to have altered surfaces with a chrome-like flash. Tiny surface marks and hairlines alone might not generate a details grade but the overall look is suspect.

If it has been cleaned a long time ago, it must have been a very light clean: there is some remaining luster to be seen underneath the patina.

Perhaps a tiny amount of wear on the feathers of the eagle's head, hairlines readily seen underneath the patina, and lots of tiny nicks and dents.

Nevertheless, it is still a quite attractive coin.
AU58.

AU cleaned. The obverse scratches, mainly on the hair but also on the neck, are most distracting to me.
