Hi,

I would like your opinion on this coin since I have close to no experience in American goldcoins

It has prooflike character but I donīt know if a TPG would put that on the slab. There is also a small scratch above Libertys head that might cause a details grade. The photos makes it look worse than it is. A tough coin to photograf...

Looks genuine and low MS when taking all the images into account. The image with the black background is a good one to evaluate. MS62 or 63 unless the small scratch details it and UNC.
