AU-58 Can't go along with any "weak strike" theory. Weak impression due to die deterioration- yes. No weak anything on the original coin.
Took a photo that was posted above and boosted the sharpness, raised the contrast and now it shows light wear on the shoulders, medals of the sash, robe collar - no shine. Oh yeah, check the ear - weak on the PCGS, full on the other.

Compare it to the adjusted photo of the PCGS coin. The PCGS one has deterioration only on the crown band and note the "aura" around the head. No weakness below the chin or neck where the aura stops and none anywhere around the rest of the coin. It's shoulder, robe and medals still shine, and have some design on the medals. (note the ornamentation between the medals of both have the same details, so no weak strike or impression on the body area).
