Any chance for another set of photos with better lighting?

The coin is fairly dark, but here are some new photos with more light.

It looks ms64bn but there are two small spots that look green on the cheek behind the mouth that look problematic. If the spots have eaten into the metal, then details corroded.

I'll go with MS65. But some of that may just be lighting.

I'm concerned about ED as well, in addition to the unnatural coloring.

i'd be tempted to acetone and/or VerdiCare this coin to see what happens with the two spots on the cheek. if it cleans up then MS64BN if not then UNC details

The color looks natural in hand. In fact, there is a trace of red mint luster hugging the devices. Hard to tell if the verdigris spots have underlying corrosion. It might be worth a shot at VerdiCare. If I do that, I'll post new pictures.
