I'm seeing some rub on the high points. AU-58.

I agree, AU-58, slight rubbing on hair over Lib's ear.
Otherwise, an attractive coin.

IMO the obverse "noise" is a bit too much for an AU-58.
I think it's more likely an AU-55.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Pictures are a bit grainy, without the best lighting. Based on them, have to go with AU-58

Going against the grain here, but the lustre looks good and I've seen many MS62s that look just like this.

Looks MS to me. I'd be at 63. I think the lighting might be throwing some people off.

Not seeing cleaning hairlines myself but pics may be hiding some details.

had to take a second look at this one. I think the hairlines I'm seeing on the CAP and cheek are not from a cleaning but just typical banging around.

the 98(O) normally have above average strikes. this one does not reach that as the hair around the ear and breast are weaker than normal for the year. I think what appears to be some wear on the left wing is actually from strike. lighting/glare could be altering what we are seeing here though but if you see wear like this on the wing you are also going to see it on the eagle neck, breast and other high devices. these seem to have intact luster so I'm revising this one to MS63
