Nice example--would be a decent hole filler until something better comes along. Given the photos posted, I could see a higher-end XF, perhaps XF45.

The "sheen" looks odd to me, anyone else?

It does seem to have too much luster for the apparent wear, which looks closer to EF than AU.

AU-53, just a typical soft strike 55-S. Lots of subdued luster remains.

The only thing I clean my pennies with is a micro fiber cloth that gets washed twice a week

@adam, that is not a good idea. Even something such as a piece of sand or grit or bread crumb on that cloth can scratch the coin leaving hairlines that can make it a details grade.

Using ANY kind of cloth or abrasive actions YOU are in essence cleaning your coins and are destroying their numismatic value.

Your coins are beginning to look unnatural, and as mentioned earlier, have a weird "sheen" look. You are killing your coins.

For example this 55s looks almost dry polished.

Only use 100% pure acetone, not standard nail polish remover. Only dip or soak, never rub a coin.
