I'm not too good at grading these. I'm looking at purchasing this as it looks to be MS. Would it make MS60 at a minimum?
Thanks in advance.

MS-60 would be an absolute minimum.
I am thinking MS-62.

Cannot see much luster, but that may be due to the lighting.
If seller's pics, there is some risk because of this.

Thanks for the reply. MS62 would be nice. The seller is wanting $200 and of course theres shipping from the USA to here. I really like the coin and would send it to NGC. It's just the price, I feel it's a bit much. What do you think?

Not my field of study but I can see flat spots (wear) on both of the wing tips, right talon, upper left leg and some leaves. assuming this is genuine, you really won't know until you are able to test it, I do not think it will make MS grade. Perhaps AU at best.

Financial advice , also good for buying coins -
'Hasten slowly'

If the $200 price seems a little steep, then also consider what else may be a better value for money bargain buy that is currently on offer. That could also include different types of coins.

Attractive example, but not so interesting as some earlier types as by this time the Mexico City mint was employing standardized dies. I don't offhand see anything that raises a red flag insofar as authenticity goes. $200 seems like a lot, but in the last few years the market's gone a bit wacky on these, so maybe that's where they are now. I concur with MisterT on its condition being likely to certify in the AU range.
