Pretty nice hair details and rim...doesn't seem to have any major gouges or scratches...pics are a little too dark to see the surfaces clearly.
I'd say XF45 based on these pics.
Nice coin!

I really don't see any evidence of wear, so I'll say AU-58.

Better photo lighting might tell us more. For now, AU 55+. Was the photo shot through a flip, with the external-to-coin area masked black?

very similar to the VDB posted. the coloration appears to be the same. AU55+ maybe 58 but again due to the mottled hues of the fields I think it was cleaned. better lighting needed to be certain

There is an X scratch above ER. The long line from 12 to 6 is the flip.

Break out the old 1990 camera. Charge the batteries. Relearn the micro lens and lighting.

Added a little angle



Lots of high points on the kernels



Rim appears ok

Just a tip - try using a white background so we can gauge the white balance of your camera.

I've had good results with light backgrounds. I'll revisit again for grading pics.

I use black for the web album.
