Hard to tell from those pics but so I will say AU. Please post new pics once you get the coin in hand.

I ask sincerely, why are all your images typically dark, with no light illuminating the surface details? You ask for grades, but almost never show us images that can be evaluated properly.

With the dull gray pictures it's hard to tell if AU or XF
Wonder what those blacker areas are?

Looks like images were acquired on a flatbed scanner

@NS.... I'm curious what you would call this one?

Obviously pics aren't good enough to accurately gauge, BUT, too me they look good enough to determine this as less than AU-58. I'm at a tentative AU-53-55 tops. $636 seems steep to me.

Don't see any wear on this coin. Edge toning indicates it may have come out of an album. Bright blue toning along the edge that I wasn't able to capture in pics. Thinking ms62. Thoughts? Thanks!

I do see a tiny amount of wear on the high points under the patina. No patina cameo wear.

The patina may well be hiding a light cleaning under it. I must admit: I can't quite make up my mind about that, and will leave others more expert than myself to comment.
Any luster that may have been there has also been well hidden by the patina.

AU-55.

I'll say AU-50, possibly 53, pretty lifeless surfaces.
