Just purchased this, here are my photos. What do you think it would grade at? The reverse is absolutely stunning in hand. The devices are bold against the fields and toning.
It has very bright cartwheel lustre in hand.

Au-58. The obverse is too battered for MS.
Inordinately fascinated by bits of metal with strange markings and figures

MS62+, great toning, probably looks better in hand.
I see some handling marks and nicks, but no signs of actual circulation wear.

Guessing the obverse is not as bright as shown, as evidenced in the extended reverse pics. I'll say MS-64.
