The lighting is so strong! But despite of that I can see there are quite a lot of scratches in the fields on both sides and on the cheek quite a fair bit. I think it is MS60 but would need to see better photos really. It could make 62 but definately not 63 in my opinion.

lighting washing out surfaces. decent strike for a 87(O) as most are weak. there are quite a bit of marks/scuffs/scratches on both sides and may be more prevalent with less light on the surfaces. because of the lighting its difficult to say the obverse is not lightly polished/buffed. MS62 or maybe MS63 without better photos.

MS61 for me, lots of chatter and tick marks all over the cheek will keep this from any grade higher than a MS62 IMO.

I'd say MS-62 at best from these photos, but it wouldn't be surprising if it ended up being AU or a details coin.

Tough to tell precisely from the photo but MS-61 to MS-62 range. Too many hits on obverse to go higher than 62.

I would not buy based on those pics. Pass unless you can get better images.

Surfaces look original, just a bit baggy. MS-62.
