Probably overpaid for this one a little bit but I liked the color of the coin so I went for it. Not sure if it's a weak strike or wear.

I think wear. The wear is hiding under the patina.
GrapeCollects is right on both of his comments.

I lean toward 45 sharpness, but agree it was cleaned at one point.

And probably more recently than you'd suspect.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Is the cleaning really bad enough to give it a details grade?

EF40 details. The clasp is not sharp enough for 45. There are also flatter hair details than 45. Definitely a past cleaning. This is an O-102 R1.

I think it would detail grade because of the patina. Sometimes these coins can eke through to straight grade even with a past cleaning, but I don't think this one will.
