She is rather attractive, in that modest Victorian kind of way:

Looks nice enough to be MS-62.

I'm at MS63. MS64 wouldn't surprise me if the luster is stronger in hand.

I'll say MS-63, terrible strike.

I can't see any definite friction on the high points or in the fields, so it should be mint state. The photos don't show the luster very well but the lack of contact marks suggest MS-64 is possible.

Great type coin!

The luster looks subdued enough to think slider as NumisEd noted. I'm going to say AU58 with a 61 or 62 market-grade on the holder very likely (unless they thought it fully Mint State).

Strike overall looks pretty good to me. A few of the star radials are weak but most stars, the dentils, Liberty's head, and the eagle talons are well-defined.

I notice some diagonal lines across the arrow feathers, branch, and eagle's right leg which appear to be the remnants of planchet scratches. I presume that the strike failed to obliterate the lines. Maybe a bit of grease softened the strike in just this area?

True about luster as stated above, but how to tell from photos? with the lack of bag marks...64 for me

Believe it or not, the luster you see in the pics is just about right. It's not blast white or anything, but it is a very pretty coin. I also thought the strike was above average.

That's a beautiful coin. I was guessing 62 at first glance.
