The grading as a hint is very suspect on this, and even though I am not a conspiracy person I think smacks of "favoritism" or bias on the part of the TPGs. In other words, I don't have a dog in this fight, other than demonstrating what I believe to be inconsistency at bast or at worst something else.
I have seen some examples of grading that IMO are past the point of belief.
As far as the OP coin, I will state that the obverse simply is average and not bad but besides having die polish lines in the fields it has sign of the ubiquitous wiping in the fields. This was said to have occurred when mint workers wiped the newly minted matte coins on their work aprons (I am not sure that has EVER been proven).
In short it is a nice coin with a better than average reverse but a grade limiting obverse....
As to the grade, I dunno. I'd go 65 at least.
