$125. Looks well struck with very early state dies. Thoughts? Thanks!

AU53, though surfaces look awfully flat. Curious what luster looks like in hand.

Edit: Agreed, well struck example!

To me, it looks at least AU-58 or higher.

AU-55, but I agree the fields do look flat and lack luster. Mostly complete strike, and no major distractions. Color looks decent, possible retoning from cleaning.

for a higher end AU coin the overall look should not be this dull. I think the coin was tampered with, albeit lightly, but has retoned evenly and probably will grade straight. even though the obv is AU58, reverse looks closer to 55 and due to the missing luster I need to go with AU55
