I'm not great with these, where are you seeing wear? I was leaning toward MS63 on this one.
The reed mark could affect the grade, especially when it's in a prominent spot. However, I've seen a Morgan graded MS 67 with a decent sized reed mark. So it sometimes gets by if there are no other distracting areas.
On an UNC coin, a reed mark will absolutely affect the grade.
However, on an AU coin like this one, a reed mark should not affect the grade.
"brown envelope toning" and "a little bit of wear" are not mutually exclusive.
In fact, I'd wager this coin has both.
