MS63-Cheek has many hits, as does the field in front of Liberty's face. Photos could be better.

The cheek hits do stand out a bit, but the reverse looks nice. I'll say MS-63.

Generally quite weak and soft the 89(O) here is well struck up for this year particularly the reverse. areas of the obverse appear to have some missing luster areas. the cheek more looks like rub than any scratches. I think it may make MS64

The cheek marks are fairly light. I'd be at MS-65 on this one.

Are you sure it's a V20A? If so it's worth some big $$ in MS. I'd call it 63-ish.
Please post it over on VW.

Nice one! For a New Orleans coin, there are surprisingly few bag marks.

Remember, the New Orleans mint was also a bullion depository. They received circulated coins and re-bagged them with uncirculated coins, handled them roughly, and stored them carelessly in humid conditions. (What could possibly go wrong?) This one somehow survived the bagginess carnage.

On the obverse, I see very few contact marks, and all are light. The luster is beautiful, and original. There is light toning. MS-66 obverse. The reverse has some contact marks, but these appear to be light. (I assume the long scratch near the eagle's right wing and the nearby scuffing on "ED" of UNITED are on the holder.) Again, the luster is original and beautiful, and there is light toning. I'm at MS-65 on the reverse. Net MS-65+. Absolutely beautiful coin.

AU? Might be worth a reconsider, I have MS Morgan's that look a lot worse.

But it always comes down to ROI (return on investment)
