I bid $350 but someone outbid me on this one by $5. This is a bronze coin, but the coloring looks copper-nickel. Thoughts on grade and color? Thanks!

A true nice IHC . Is that staple scratches on the obverse ?
Also , there looks like die cracks on reverse .

I looked at that carefully, mostly to the left of OF. It looks like a raised die crack to me.

I'll say AU-58, most attractive.

Many die cracks on this one. Looks MS to me but the color is questionable. Tough call because it might just be the photo lighting. To be safe, MS details, cleaned.

Looking at the surfaces it looks original to me.

If the surfaces are original, it's at least MS-65BN.

Must disagree. This lacks the clarity and flash of a MS coin, imo.
