Id say AU-55 or so. PCGS coinfacts has an 53 for 170.00 and an 55 for 175.00 approximate value.

I see AU-55 here.

I just have to ask the obvious $10,000 question. Have you checked to see if it is the large 3 over small 3 DDO? I can't enlarge the pic enough to see.

It's not a series I am too familiar with, but did check for the 3 over 3 and unfortunately not it. That would have been a super nice bonus, but I'm still happy with it. Thanks to all for the grade estimates.

AU53 for me, the little dark spots on the obverse and reverse near United hold it back. I'd say they are returning from an old cleaning, but not excessive and probably not enough to detail the coin, I am concerned about what looks like a scratch on the reverse also, that might detail it.
