Thanks so far......Here are the pics I bought this from.

The spot above the first feather is troubling, but not a huge concern. Lovely coin either way!

Funny , I know it's the same coin but why does he first 8 look different between the two examples ?

I've submitted dozens of Indians for grading over the years. In my view, the freckled carbon spotting on the obverse, and the major spot above the first feather, along with an overall lack of luster, leave this at an average MS-63 from the curb.

subdued luster and overall surface preservation will keep this below GEM, first thought was MS63, carbon spots make get a pass given the lack of contact marks, may get a bump to MS63+. Nice example nonetheless!
