Solid EF-45 details, shot AU-50, but the two cuts in the left obverse field could hold this to a details coin.

XF 40 to VF 35, not enough breast feathers to grade higher.

Agreed with CF, XF45 shot at AU. Weak strike is the culprit of the lack of detail on the breast feathers IMO. Also noticeable on the usual obverse high points as well.

Very nice details on the neck line and well defined breasts...even the cap still shows some details...which is nice! Interesting wear pattern or strike issue...from about her thigh down...gown looks a little soft on details.
The two scratches in left field look to be older and don't reveal shine underneath as if a recent event...Imo based on the age of this coin should be acceptable and not detail her.
The reverse has strong details along with typical wear/strike issue on the high points of the eagles breast feathers and leg.
Easy EF45 for me.
She's a Beaut I would be happy to have in my set.

Perhaps I'm unfamiliar with the wear points on a WLH but to me this seems between a VF-35 and an XF-40. Hard to say if it would or wouldn't details from the obverse hit, but I think I would err on the side of a straight grade

My first impression was VF but it could very well be XF and weakly struck. Gown lines look a little weak and so does some feather details on the left wing. Only real distracting thing is the obverse scratch. I would put it in my book.
