I bought this one in the mid 90's . I was debating if I should send to ANACS on there next Buffalo special
The coin has a slight golden tone with a little apricot color on the top of the obverse and reverse , I was having a hard time getting decent pics with my I Phone . Nice coin in hand. Does it make AU? Can you take anything from these pics? I know I need to learn to take better pictures haha

Seems to be AU, but looks possibly cleaned and now retoning.

The coin has a lot of chatter both sides . I wouldn't recommend sending it in for grading .

I'd leave it raw. There's only a $10-$12 wholesale swing from EF-45 to AU-58. The contact marks will be the talking point at sale anyway.

There is a risk that a TPG would lower the grade at the outset because of the contact marks. Having it slabbed could result in a buyer wanting to price it lower again because of the contact marks, using the TPG grade as the starting point. That could end up costing you two steps on pricing point or grade, rather than one.

JMHO.

I dont plan on selling it I just like having them in holders for storage . I personally think it will make AU-55
Contact marks are mostly hard to see and has nice toning but I will not sell this one ever I do not think.

I'd call this AU53, possibly 55 depending on how the surfaces look in hand. I can see ANACS going 55
