Neither set of pics gives a good feel for the surface details, especially on the obverse.

AU58 - MS62. Can't quite get a good read on it.

id say MS-63 based on the pics but the pics could be hiding some wear so a nice AU-58 is also possible

I have to agree with coinfrog.
You are going to get a range of grade opinions in this case.
So you have to learn to grade for yourself at the time of purchase.
Very good to learn to grade here, with the CCF.

I will guess MS-62, because I can't see wear on the high points of the design, either side. Some mint luster has been captured in the first obverse and reverse pictures.

Coin justifiably unslabbed - not valuable enough.

Check a current pricing guide against the grade. The coin would have a premium value above melt of about half of what the pricing guide suggests.

I'd guess low MS. The rub on the cheek in pic #1 worries me.

The rub on the cheek makes it an AU-58 to me

That's exactly what I did. The larger pics are mine, the smaller ones are sellers pics. I figured on AU-50 for bidding purposes, just to play it safe. Blue Book is $27 for AU-50, so I set a maximum of $30.

Cheek looks more like a bag scuff to me than rub - if the coin were AU I'd expect to see more rub on other high points.

AU58 or MS62. I'm leaning MS on this one
