Hi all this one is giving me a hard time as far as I am having a tough time photoing it. the pictures are making it brighter than it is, though it does have luster . It doesn't appear to have been cleaned though I guess at some point in its history it could have been whipped though no harsh cleanings and doesn't look to have been dipped

any thoughts based on my pics? I will try for better ones later as well.

This has definitely seen a fair bit of circulation but there's still luster present. AU-53 IMO

I'll say AU-50/63 - basically a bullion coin.

I can't tell from the photos whether the surfaces are original or the amount of luster. It definitely has seen modest circulation. I think it nudges up to AU-55.

I can't make out the check mark but the clash marks look correct for 53A. I can make out the clash mark between the s and t in trust which matches the correct position for 53A. 11A has the clash mark at a slightly different degree of rotation.

with all the surface issues, eye appeal on the low end and weak reverse strike, I think this one nets at AU53

This one is ungraded but since it had bad pics I won the auction for 29.00 which I thought was a bargain for this coin if it's a VAM 53a and though not the best eye appeal it's decent in hand and looks fine to me for the money

Surfaces don't look right to me. I'd be at AU details for this one. Not sure if cleaned or some kind of environmental issue but something is off.

Fenton I will try and get better pics my camera skills where off for sure . The pics captured the detail good but not the color . It looks exactly like a few other graded Au 50 to 55 I have including the 91o clashed e I posted a few weeks back so I don't think it's been cleaned but could be wrong
