please be very clear about what YOU would grade this quarter.
When grades here go lofty, these are worth a few pennies.
Also please do consider that pictures could be taken in a different way where it would NOT show most faults, and then ask the very same question.
However, the Macro lens shows everything, every ever so tiny fault, many times enlarged. so, No surprises here.
I believe some of these tiny issues could be removed with Acetone?
thank you for your input.

Ms64 maybe 65.

Based on pictures, fields look decent and there are a few hits to the neck and below eye. Black spot would hurt grade at PCGS.

Only you can decide if worth of TPG. What are you planning to do with it, keep/buy/sell? ICCS is not expensive, PCGS is, but protects better and makes for nice registry sets.

With that spot, I'd say no.

You will be paying a very large percentage of what the coin will ever be worth (to another collector, not a book price) and, with the black spot, you should just protect it in an airtight holder and keep it as an excellent example. Save to TPG cost for some other coins.

Given the photos posted, I'm thinking that acetone will do very little to remove the spot--spot appears to be 'into' the coin's surface

I'll say MS-63 unless conserved and that spot disappears.

The black spot really kills the value though.
Acetone will not remove it.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Looks like a collar clash on the obverse die.
