Strong difference in a good way . Still seems a trifle on the dark side but the nice condition easily makes up for it . I love the first reverse photo . Classic example of a BN Unc . MS-64BN , a couple of miner issues on obverse .

I just noticed something on the reverse . Is that a die crack from 3:00 to 4:00 ?

I'll move up from AU-53 to AU-55, but the strike is full so I'll take the slight ribbon wear at face value.

Didn't even noticed the possible crack. I doubt its a scratch. So it might be. Good eye!

I'm still at AU-58 on this one. Nice coin just not MS in my opinion.

Do you think it would be worth my time to send this in for grading?

AU58, I don't think it's worth getting graded.
