This is somewhere in between AU50 and MS63. the reverse is very lustrous.
I have trouble grading modern clad coins. Especially half dollars. I thought this would be a good example to try. They didn't make mint sets this year.
Could y'all help me with grading this one? Also, maybe explaining what to look for on modern clad for grading.




Natural light pics available tomorrow if it is needed.

Not the best pics, but I'll say AU-55.

AU53 for me. Shows light wear and an array of dings, along with a few unfortunate hits/gouges.

Thanks, for all your help. It seems with coins like this unless the are are uncirculated that wear is more important than luster

Hard to gauge the luster in these photos. I would say AU-55, possibly AU-58.
