Does this year have a "weak" strike of the obverse? If not, it appears to be circulation wear, bringing it down in grade, but the reverse is a beauty.
I concur. AU50 details was my thought. Don't see the luster I'd expect, though. It looks cleaned, though that could be the lighting, too, maybe.
I suppose there is a possibility it straight-graded AU50, maybe even 53.
It's a sharp coin, but I'll hedge my bets and say AU details/cleaned.
If I'm reading that article correctly, the spur on the numeral "1" excludes it from being the thin date. Mine has that spur pictured.
Correct sorry its monday phone been driving me nuts...I was looking at cracks while dealing with complete idiots on the phone....
It looks to me like it's been cleaned but not harshly or improperly enough to warrant a details grade. There are some hairlines in the obverse fields but not enough and it is a circulated coin.
I'm guessing above what I think PCGS did and why, not what I personally think the coin should be. If we went by my grading, it would get AU-Details.
Here’s my arrows example since you solicited others.
Here is a high resolution photo, from my iPad Pro. The circled areas look like cleaning marks to me, as opposed to wear. I think it is most likely an AU details coin. Could it have squeaked through as a straight graded AU coin in the 50-55 range? Only if they called the circled areas wear, as opposed to cleaning marks. It is a possibility, as it is not harshly cleaned. Definitely a TPG judgement call. PCGS has called marks like that wear, before.
Oh, snap! The colors!
Here, take my money! LOL
