Strong strike, clean fields, looks like the highest one of the bunch, and the last one I looked at. MS64+ can't quite see it MS65 though but it's close.

this is decent strike for a 85(O) which can be hit or miss. it has some nice detail around the ear and the breast feathers are not completely flat. I'm going to assume the dark areas on the fields of both sides are from the photo and not from broken luster on the coin itself. surface preservation is AVG+ with minimal marks, scuffs and hairlines.

if the luster is not broken I'm in at MS65 otherwise MS64. Nice looking coin.

I'd like to have a better feel for the lower left obverse field, but otherwise not less than MS-64.

Nice one! I agree with the upthread comments about the strike and quality. Old school Gem BU, MS-65. You're in at MS-64 price, but I think you snagged a sleeper.

Pretty coin. Strike over the ear is strong but hair above the forehead seems unusually weak. Bit of a negative for overall appeal. Still looks solid for 64 and possible for 65.

weaker strikes are normal for this year so this one is actually quite nice. I dont think it affected the grade one way or the other
