Nice rim with a solid strike. Very nice bole devises both obverse and reverse. Unfortunately the toning/discoloration hides a lot of these features at first glance.
EF40 at least.
I would be proud to have her with my other Ladies walking in the sun!!

Not my cup of tea toning wise, but nice example. Agreed the toning is hiding a lot of detail, which I find distracting. XF40

I'll say EF-40, possibly 45.

At least an EF40 maybe even AU50? I've seen that toning before on Walkers, I think it's from an holder or album, like a Whitman type folder (push in holes). It's not really attractive but there is a lot of detail left underneath that toning.

Looks like it has low to mid AU sharpness, but the toning really affects the eye appeal. I wonder if this might benefit from some conservation.

I'm with Zurie on this one. AU53 maybe AU55. the toning makes it challenging to assess but the sharpness of the lettering and highest device areas are all pointing to mid AU. I think its a good price and would be a TPG candidate especially if it pulled a 55

Looks like a nice original example and a hint of blue toning around the date. The photos are not showing any luster. The obverse looks 45 and the reverse looks 53. This one may be better than seller's photos show.

I can't get a good feel on grade from these pics. (Seller's pics, I presume?) I'll wait for your in-hand pics. I have a sneaking suspicion this one may look quite a bit better in hand than the pics suggest.

When this critter comes in, would you be willing to shoot a closeup of the mm? It's fuzzy when I enlarge it, but there's a chance you may have D/D North (FS-501). I think I can make out the tail of an underlying mm. Not sure about a premium for this RPM, but it might be nice to know.

Very hard to grade from these photos. Might be a nice EF-45 in hand.

I'll bump to AU-50 or 53. Knockout.
