Might come back as AU Details Cleaned. I see its priced as an AU-50. I wouldnt buy this particular coin without seeing it in hand first under normal light. It looks like it was deliberately photographed in a way to hide something. Let us know if you end up buying it.

I'd be at MS-62 for this one but some concern it's a details coin given it's priced at AU money. Wiped, perhaps with the photography hiding the fine lines.

Luster looks solid and complete across the fields. Given the many distracting contact marks and abrasions I have it at MS-60. Eye appeal is pretty low.

The coin might have been improperly cleaned but I don't see evidence of this in the photos.

I think the obverse is no better than MS60 due to the amount and severity of the contact marks. The reverse looks a little better but the obverse is a turn off to me. I would rather spend less money for a high grade AU with fewer distracting marks.
