So, I picked up this coin, along with an 1858 Flying eagle, and an 1859 IHC for $60 bucks, gotta say, was a heck of a deal.

Also, changed my photography setup, let me know what you think!

I say high AU depending on how much detail is hidden by the patina.

I pretty much agree with the others. AU55 to AU-58. Steal of a deal at $60 plus the 58 FE and 59 IHC. Great purchase!

I am still using my Celestron Micro Direct 1080p HD Microscope.

What I changed was the light source, I happened to have lying around, made by LimoStudio.

The LEDs built into the scope are too direct, and unnatural of a light.

I'm just making an assessment based on what I see. higher end AU coin technically. I think the coin may have been improperly stored for quite a while and maybe exposed to higher humidity resulting in what appears to be a crusty almost rusty surface on both sides. if this is the actual look of the coin in hand I wouldn't be surprised to see a details designation on it for ED. just my opinion
