Booming luster as well with a touch of color for originality. Quite nice.

i assume you are looking for CCF to guess the grade or are you just posting it to show us the coin?

if grading. I'm not a commemorative collector but just using standard grading it looks like quite a few hits mostly on the highest points of the devices on the obverse. all the luster looks like its there. not sure if the orangish color is rust from improper storage or toning. i'll say they called it MS63

That is a beauty. I agree with @panzaldi technical evaluation of the hits and odd orange color. I'll go with MS64 giving a grade bump for the clean fields.

These were generally well preserved when issued and can often be found in MS66 or better.

Looking at the leg, stomach and arm I'd say MS-64.

In hand the coin looks like a 65+. Blown up like it is, it's really easy to see its faults.

Congratulations! By the way, it's usually best to wait at least 48 hours before posting results so everyone has a chance to chime in.

Wow, I'm with IGE on this with the hits. Heck there's even what looks like a hit in the headdress plus, it looks like a 4 legged spider, in upper left field, getting ready to attack the wagon train.

I would have guessed 64 on this one. Before gradeflation this would have been a 63. It is a wonderful coin but does have several marks as others have indicated.

i had it at MS63 due to the obv hits in the critical areas. I can see it MS64 but I cant get it to 65. everyone here that commented had the coin at 63 or 64. that tells me either the photos are enhancing any issues or the slab is wrong. I think your photos with the exception of some reverse shadowing are excellent so that only leaves one option.
