Typical weak obverse strike. Looks like the obverse field luster is broken and remains only hugging the rims. It could be lighting but going with what I see. AU53 due to what look like rubbed fields. Reverse looks MS. Reverse fields look wiped, but not sure if it would details the coin.

AU Details, cleaned. Though a TPG may call it UNC Details. I think they throw out the UNC Details too freely. Take a very lightly circulated coin and call it AU58, but intentional "wear" (cleaning) removes the same amount if not more luster and original skin and call it UNC details. A coin should be graded in the current state, not what it might have looked like before cleaning. Rant over

AU Details final answer!

Last pic appears to show some cleaning swirls, so I'll say AU details as well.

A tough call between MS and AU. I'll go with AU details cleaned.

AU details. still a nice coin and the first two photos would not normally lead to details designation so it goes to show you how photos can be deceiving

Yeah my thoughts were it is fairly clearly MS but the reverse was likely wiped with a light cloth. Seller wants about $350.

AU Details Cleaned. Must have cost a pretty penny even in this condition.

Yeah I took a pass on it. I'm annoyed that I sold an MS-64 example, PCGS, for $600 back in 2013. Seemed like a good price at the time now it costs a fortune in that grade. So I'm trying to find a clean example that is unslabbed at a better price point. Not having much luck yet.
