I do not own this coin. These are the seller's photos. I was looking at it but wasn't sure how it would grade.

Your opinions are welcome. Thanks.

Can't accurately judge surfaces with these blurry pics. Maybe AU-53/55. I wouldn't pick this one up unless the price was great and it had a solid return policy, personally.

The coin looks original, but a bit dirty.

The seller doesn't offer returns so I'm hesitant to bid on it.

I wouldn't buy based on that obverse pic - pretty much useless.

I'd be a bit concerned about the milk spots on the reverse. It's definitely in the AU-mid UNC spectrum, but that isn't much help.

I would reach out to the seller and request better pics, using the reasoning of no returns and wanted an accurate idea of what your paying for. If they are unwilling, then I would steer clear personally.

I would say AU55-58 and set the AU55 price as my ceiling.

AU50-53 for me, seems to be a lot of wear in the leaves above the ear, but I wouldn't buy it based on these images. Looks like a gouge across the back of the head and scratches on the face.

Thanks for all the responses. I think I'll pass on this Barber.
