Pics are too washed out to evaluate color and surface details clearly.

Washed out=too much light reflecting off the coin's surfaces. Try taking photos at a different angle, it is too difficult to assess with these.

Same problem - still too washed out. These don't even look like a copper coin, would you not agree?

It's obviously quite a nice coin but I have to agree these look like press pictures and we are looking for raw unedited images

High AU details
Surfaces look wrong so it's impossible to tell much about color or cleaning from these photos
There is a planchet flaw on the obverse at "IN"

From the photos, AU-58, but not sure if it has been cleaned.

as high as AU50 however the glare is just obscuring the fields making it difficult to determine surface originality.

photo tip if you are using your phone. it works pretty good

1. turn off flash
2. place coin on flat surface with indirect natural light. maybe a window sill in a cloudy day
3. move phone about 3in from coin
4. zoom in using you fingers until the coin comes into focus
5. hold phone steady. if you cant then place something on either side of the coin at that distance and lay phone on top. this will hold it steady and allow you to zoom and take the photo without any blur

Just based on these pics, then I'll say AU details (cleaned) as well.
