I think the first two pictures should be under strong light, so the scratches are a bit obvious, but the two seller's pictures below do not seem to have obvious scratches

I'll say G details (cleaned). Definitely not worth submitting for grading.

A low-mintage coin from an interesting time in US history, but the condition does not warrant the cost of submitting it for grading.

I think it may be counterfeit. The S mm looks too small for that issue.

After looking at a genuine example, this one is absolutely bogus. Not only is the mm the wrong size, it is not even the correct orientation. It should be large and between the letters F and D of Half Dol.

Thank you! @Coinfrog @Hondo Boguss @MisterT

You gave me a unified opinion, the rating fee is indeed equivalent to one-third of the price of this coin. Alright,let me just keep it as a sample!

And thanks MisterT, I checked the types of 1864S and found three sizes of S mint mark. This one I think is normal size S, it seems their values are not significantly different.

@MisterT, you are incorrect. Liberty Seated half dollars came with different sized mintmarks. Also, besides the fact that the mintmark is different than what you saw, what other evidence do you have? Surfaces look correct, does not look cast, everything looks normal to me. It is an honestly circulated San Fran Half.

http://www.lsccweb.org/BillBugertBo...Vol-I-SF.pdf - Page 94 has the several MM orientations. This is a WB-2.

It appears genuine. There are 3 different sized "S" mm for this year, see PCGS link https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...4-s-50c/6312 click "view more images". Regardless, being cleaned with scratches, unfortunately not worth grading.
