Hard to assess, but looks cleaned.

Pictures are over exposed. Tentative AU Details, cleaned.

The overexposed photos make hard to assess the originality of the surfaces, but it looks likely cleaned. Definitely some wear, I'd say low to mid AU details.

The glare off those photos hurts me just looking at it on my monitor. Can't judge grade from those photos other than to say it is circulated and possibly cleaned.

Hi and welcome! As you may have gathered already, assessing the originality of the surfaces is one of the most important tasks of a collector. Grading comes second.

Keep trying with your pics -- these aren't bad for a first try, but as you can see from the responses you'll need to experiment a bit with lighting and focus.

If these pics show things as they are, the obverse at least has been polished.

Appreciate all the input! These pictures are from a seller I purchased the coin from. I guess I will see how good it looks when it comes in the mail.

hard to tell as the lighting is way to much to see the surfaces properly. based on these looks AU details cleaned

hopefully you didnt spend a whole lot on it. probably in the $35-40 retail range if its cleaned. post new photos when it comes in

Alarm bells should go off when you see overexposed photos.

I will definitely get pictures of it up when I receive it in a couple days. I paid $45 for it, but the seller has a good return policy, so I can always send it back.
