I'd call it a ms63, but I'd wait for someone more experienced to weigh in. Love the colour

I'm not good at grading,XF-45 to AU-50? Looks dull so maybe was dipped at one time?

The reverse looks really clean , I see no major marks that could really knock it down, the color I can't tell 100% it could be Red but with the light I'm leaning toward a reddish brown (could be fully red but the bright area around ONE) can make the color look lighter. So the back I'll say MS 64 RB.

The front is a little harder, there are marks on the face and other high points with that mark by liberty and looks like a few dings in front of Lincoln's face. This one looks more red, so I'll say MS62 RD.

Based on the pictures and comparing it to photograde I'll go Over All MS 63 Red/Brown

The color is hard for me as in top picture it's brown but bottom one I see lots of red.

Thinking MS60. Second set of photos -- Might be a die chip on the right wheat stalk, upper third. Also appears to be a subtle die crack on the lower portion of the left wheat stalk, leading to the rim--could be a scratch.

With that picture the color is red, so I'll change it to Red but there more dings and blotches on the reverse so I'll have to go down to MS 62 reverse.

I'll keep the front at MS 62. But it's color overall is very pleasing. I wouldn't slab it but would be happy to put it into my collection.

Overall MS 62 Red. In hand it might grade lower or slightly higher but I wouldn't grade this AU, it's a nice coin.
