I'm thinking AU55. Any thoughts or opinions? Thanks.

This one has seen quite a bit of circulation. I'd say AU-55 range, assuming it grades clean. Some of the parallel lines on the devices have me concerned it may have been cleaned.

typically the 84(S) have a bold strike. this one is AVG- for strike so that's going to hold it back a little. surface preservation is also AVG-. quite a bit of the luster appears to be gone, however lighting could be a contributor to this. I'm not seeing the signs of circulation the others are. I'm at MS62+ due to the surface issues. coin may have been wiped or attempts to polish the coin. not sure she would grade straight but I'm just going by the photos presented

I'm in the middle of the herd here.

I played with the photos and looked for quite a while. I see just a touch of wear from circulation. The hair above the ear, tip of the cap, and large bear claw show minimal evidence of circulation. The beagle's breast, talons, and bow show the same on the reverse. The luster disruption in the fields from circulation matches the minimal wear on the coin.

The rest is strike weakness, bag scuffiness, and a couple laps in a lap pool of cleaner (more than "dipping"). I think it straight grades at AU-58, unless an eye appeal drop grade brings it down to AU-55.

I'm at AU 53 on this one.

It's been dipped a couple of times, too. Any more dips and it'll end up with dead luster and a details grade.

I could see AU55. Agree on the dipping.
