The obverse has lots of facial scratches and dings as well as wear on the stars at 3, 4 and 5 o'clock, so, AU-58.
Overall, AU-58 because of photo quality, IMO.
not MD, just toning strangely
The toning will be an impact as much as the light wear.
I have one that is very similar and the grade was AU55.
Light wear???? Look at the area circled. 1880s is very well struck. Feathers are completely worn. AU 50 is generous.
I had the same thought at first too...I was gonna say AU50 at best. But, the more I look at it the more I think there is some feather detail being hidden by the dark toning. There is absolutely some wear there...but I don't think the breast feathers are completely worn down.
At any rate, to be honest, it is a ghastly looking coin. Given the easy availability of gorgeous 1880s coins, it is not worth any numismatic premium, imho.
100% agree. I wouldn't pay more than melt for it.
For free I'd take it for sure.
