Unfortunately this one has been wrapped in a pendant but is not soldered in and could be removed without damage..

I'll say AU-58. I would not be overly confident that this coin will not show evidence of mounting when removed.

I'd say AU-55. Could you remove it from the bezel and photograph it alone?

Too much flashback on the reverse to accurately judge. AU-something (53 maybe) if not Details due to the gash on the obverse above the date and the possible bezel damage. I'm with CF, given how soft gold is, there's a good possibility of it leaving behind some damage.

If it is never to be removed from it's lace bezel, and in this condition, it will always remain a jewelry piece, and thus,
it will always have significantly more value as a jewelry piece, than as a coin removed from the bezel and so
a coin grading is largely irrelevant.

.900 gold is softer than .900 silver.
Normally, if this was an equivalent sized .900 silver coin,
for the same amount of wear, the impact dings would not be as deep.

Too much harsh lighting, so I will say AU-detail.

Here is an idea on value as a coin http://www.numismedia.com/cgi-bin/c...de2=pricesms
You may want to check eBay sold values as a coin and as a piece of jewelry.

The pictures look like it has been rubbed with a jewelers cloth. It's jewelry, so, no need to grade it.
