I am trying to learn about grading coins now, and I think this could be maybe AU 53? It's my first attempt at grading so any information is appreciated. The pictures are under my 10X magnifying glass. The last one is to show the color better without the magnifying glass.

The TPG's are lenient on these with many AU coins slabbed as mint state. This coin could be MS-63 with most of them.

That said, the pictures aren't the best but I see very light circulation wear in the fields and even a light thumbprint at 3 oclock on the right, obverse field. It's barely worn IMO, AU-58.

Certainly no less than AU_58, perhaps as high as 63RB.

I'm thinking a strong AU58.

Let me be honest , I stayed away from this call because I'm not sure if the obverse is rub or a weak strike . Reverse looks uncirculated . My gut says AU-58 .

I don't see any rub or wear. MS-63RD.

It was so shiny I weighed it because I thought it was fake when I first saw it. It's maybe barely circulated or someone cleaned it? I found it coin roll hunting and there were a lot of older wheat pennies in the roll too. Probably my favorite roll yet. Lol
