On the large feather, there is a spot where it appears to be rubbed down/mushy. Is that the picture, or is it on the coin? The highpoints of the obverse look to have wear, so ill say AU details as well. Dont listen to me though, I know less than anyone on here, for all I know the obverse die was super worn down, and that hairknot isn't worn at all.

AU something, but can't say much more than that with the pics provided. Can't tell if it's lacquered, polished, or just lighting making it appear altered.

Have you already tried an acetone soak to see if anything can be pulled from the surfaces (if it is lacquered).

I'm thinking the polished look is from the lighting. its washing out the surfaces so its not enough for me to determine any circulation rub particularly on the both the front and rear hip areas as it could be from die polishing or strike. AU58 or MS65. the rim hit obverse K3 may be sufficient for a details designation.
