This one is a little tricky, I think, but nothing you guys can't handle. I overpaid a little for this one, I think:

I'll say MS-63, but AU-58 would not surprise.

Obverse says "AU" to me, but the reverse surprised me and looks Mint State. So...I guess I agree with Coinfrog: anywhere from AU58 to MS63.

Color is great, luster is good and contact marks are minimal. Eye appeal is very good also so a MS64 grade from PCGS would be no surprise.

The obv and rev are in conflict. For me AU58 vs MS64, so Split the difference for MS62.

Luster seems mostly intact across the fields. I suspect the photos are muting the luster somewhat. Contact marks on Liberty's nose and chin, bottom edge of the bust, and the date are grade-limiting.

Assuming luster is in fact complete I'll venture MS-63, with a shot at 64.

IMO it's a 63, possibly a 64.
Describe it as if there were no picture.
