This coin has great full cartwheel luster on both sides. However the coin seems to have a lot of chops marks. Is this normal? Looking for grade and opinion on if it is authentic.
Thank you!

Genuine, not sure what you mean about "chops marks", but I think obverse bag marks hold this to MS-62/3.

Lots of small and a few larger contact marks but not enough damage to cause a details grade. Toning looks original. Visible friction across the obverse fields precludes an MS grade. I'd guess AU-55 based on these images.

Some Different light. Not sure if it makes a difference. Chop marks I just meant bag marks. Sometimes when I see then I get nervous they are a cleaning or something like that. Not great at being able to tell the difference.

Beautiful coin. I am not great at grading, just wanted to say she's a beauty.

Beautiful coin. Delicious and genuine in my opinion.

I think you meant "contact marks" or "bag marks".

AU details cleaned as well. Don't think the toning is authentic.

Is the color of the background correct? If not, can you process this image in a paint program running "auto-level"?

based on the photos AU58 or MS62/3. i'd like to see the right obverse field to see if the dark area is from lighting or if the luster has been removed. rotating the coin would help determine surface originalilty
