Hello all,

I was going through some old coins with my daughter and we found one that I'm not sure how much I paid for it but it looks really nice to my untrained eye. I compared to the PCGS photograding and don't want to get my hopes up too much. I'm looking for some feedback regarding the grade of the coin as best as you can do with a couple pics.





Thanks for your help and cheers!

I'll concur with AU53, some luster intact, but clear evidence of circulation.

97(O) can be weak to average in strike. this one is leaning toward the weak side. maybe 25% luster remaining. eye appeal and surface preservation are average. I'm not seeing anything that would cause a details designation on the coin. the coin has seen circulation. I think it can make AU55

to the club!

I would also agree with AU-53, a little to worn for a 55
