Low AU sharpness, but cannot accurately judge surface originality based on these pics.

I'd go AU50 or 53 if problem-free. Which can't really be assessed from that obverse image.

Always a tough series to grade, but you're well into AU territory. Strike weakness on obverse is common for this date and no big deal.

Alas, the photos do not permit assessment of the surface integrity, but I suspect it is a very nice coin.

Significant weakness on the lower shield and the corresponding area on the reverse wreath. Maybe the planchet was a little thin?

The minor obverse scratches aren't bad but surfaces don't look original. Maybe re-toned over an old cleaning? Detail appears to be in the 45 to 50 range.

Looks AU-50 to me.
