The heading is the question. This coins up for auction ...... over in less than an hour, bids already over $100, but those sure do look like hair lines to me, think I'll keep my money in my pocket ..... Opinion on those lines on the reverse?

I don't see them crossing the devices in this pic (reverse) - guessing these are die-polishing lines. Nice-looking example.

They have the look of die polishing lines to me.

AS said - they do not cross the devices.

Die polishing lines established - that is a big scrape on the cheek so I'll say MS63

I'd say MS-63 sounds about right.

Agree probably MS-63. Nice frosted devices, and if that scrape is just the frost, it might make MS-64.

the 87(S) should be above average in strike. this one falls into that box. the reverse hairlines are in fact polishing lines. luster appears to be broken on both sides. eye appeal would be average. obverse cheek/jaw marks along with multiple field scuffs and marks and scuffs and overall eye appeal will hold this one to MS63
