Ikes are fun to spend, looks like yours has seen some circulation, you can still get them at banks for $1 each from time to time

Looks good! Always fun to find old coins in a box.
However, to determine grade we would need much bigger (3x) pics.

Lightly circulated and worth basically a dollar even after more than 50 years. Still a fun find, though. I'd say keep them if you like them.

if you post other coins try using these helpful hints using a phone as your photos are too small

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 your 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 blurring

the bright areas on Ike's chin and above the 1 in the date look like scuffing from circulation, but maybe larger pics would reveal otherwise

Photos aren't large enough but it does look circulated.

Ikes?
Ike was Eisenhower's nickname, so it is applied to the coins as well.

Larger pics would help, but guessing it's just worth face value.

It's not unusual to find slightly circulated Ike's. The biggest reason is what you state. Someone pulled it from circulation and stuck it in storage for 30 - 50 years. I've got about 200 or so in similar condition because I did just that like many others did. I like to give them out to children in my extended family to generate interest in coin collecting, or at least interest in history.

Even at circulated wome of these still are worth more than face value..I have quite a few put up. There's silver clad and a few varieties that are worth finding! And I just like them regardless
