This is a recent auction pick up. Love the die cracks on the 108a. What grade would you assign it?

XF-45 details, previously cleaned, but a nice strong strike.

AU-50 and I agree, an older cleaning. Even so, great eye appeal now.

Here are the original auction images. Perhaps I have too much light and bad photo skills. I think most Bust halves have been cleaned at one time, but felt like this one was market acceptable.

I would say AU-53, and also agree that there is an older cleaning. The second set of photos helps to see any circulation rub. Great strike.

With the new pics, I'll change to a solid AU-50 straight grade.
