I do not see evidence of any wear in the first photo, and no major blemishes, so I would guess it would merit an MS grade (I will let others assign the number). The photo of the other side does not look quite as sharp, but maybe this is just a difference in lighting?

Nice coin!

KM# 9a 1941, zinc.
MS-63, however,
raised lumps under surface (obverse), suggest sub surface zinc corrosion, which could severely affect it's value.

Zinc rot is a major problem with U.S. copper plated zinc cored Zincolns

PCGS World Coin Values lists this coin in MS-63 at $125.
In MS-63 is rare, because almost all of them must have suffered from corrosion. They were replaced, or at least supplemented, in circulation with a brass 1/2 Piastre with center hole, (KM# 11), of rather crude manufacture in 1941, but not bearing a date.
