Recent acquisition. A bit of a surprise auction win under GS. Nice color and strike IMO. What did NGC call it?

I don't know what NGC rated it but, wow, that is a nice looking coin. Maybe too good to be true?

Very nice coin, even color, and strong strike. I don't see any wear and the surfaces are hidden by the toning. I'll start with an MS-62.

No visible wear but no luster either. Dipped and retoned maybe? MS detail.

It is really nice, Congratulations. I would say it is somewhere between AU58 and MS61.

Gorgeous coin with an uncommon absence of blemishes. Whatever the grade, it probably has a big fat CAC green bean on it.

There is some detail missing in the hair that is probably wear, and a tiny bit on the left wing. Either could be a strike issue -- it is always difficult to tell with this series. Can't see any wear on the reverse.

Assuming what I see is wear, AU58 CAC. If it isn't, MS65 CAC.

1830's CBH's are interesting because there are a large number of "survivor" coins that spent their lives being stacked and restacked at banks, and never saw much, if any, circulation; there are also a large number of coins that clearly saw very heavy circulation and are worn slick or nearly so.

Clasp, cheek, top of cap, motto, claws, and beak all look relatively undisturbed and it can be hard to distinguish "cabinet wear" from actual circulation rub.
Very, very faint touch of rub on hair curls below back of cap and lower down.

The toning is gray and even and the fields do not show signs of disturbance but I don't see much pull-away from the devices; of course, many CBH's saw some sort of cleaning at one point or another and the TPG's often give them a pass except in more egregious (i.e. unappealing/unattractive) cases.

AU58. If it slid into a 62 holder I'd not be the least bit surprised.

I see only the smallest amount of rub on both the obverse and reverse. I would say AU-58 except for the lack of luster. Because of this I have to guess AU-55
