I see color in the protected spots, but the question is, how is the luster across the brown areas?

@Posion Dart of the Coin and Currency World,

There is some subdued luster left on the coin, but due it being brown there is no cartwheel. And the 2 grades so far given (AU58 and MS64) is really where I am at. Its a beautiful coin, but is it MS64 or is it AU58 and I honestly am lost. This is the type of coin that get an excellent grade or a good one.

I like it. I'm hovering in that AU-58/MS-63.

I'm at AU-58, but I really don't think you can grade a coin like this from pics alone.

Shield appears to be struck up nicely, however the acorn at 11k might show some wear, not seeing the separation between cap and kernel is why I would put it a AU-58. But in hand this cent could range from AU-58 to MS-63 (like Ty2020b) Never the less a very lovely coin...

I dont see wear, but the few marks will put me a MS62BN or MS63BN. Nice coin!

You'll never know until you submit it, and that's a big gamble as it appears. To me, worth $50 at best, and I wouldn't be interested even at that price.

63BN, softly struck obverse with a minor hit across the first 2 feathers and another between T-E, few small nicks, still a good looking IHC in my opinion.

The color is attractive, and I see no signs of friction on the high points (cheekbone, feather tips, hair ribbon, upper leaves, wreath bow) -- luster on IHC's can be tricky to shoot because of the way the coins tone.

Even at 63BN not worth grading. Not a strong candidate for a high-grade Indian cent set.
