    Her bust almost made me say AU58. But I cant see any rub on her knee and nothing on the reverse. I dont think dude11 would snag a details coin. I will go with MS61.

    I hope it straight graded,however, the fields have wheat growing, so I must conclude MS-Details also. I love the coin.

    Edit: If the coin straight graded, MS-63.

    Dang . I do not know this series well. I will say MS-61 but if I am missing wear I would say AU-55 ( to baggy for a 58 in my opinion)
    I think its straight graded based on what I see.

    PCGS, MS61, I'm seeing quite a few hairlines in the fields of the obverse but I can also see scratches on the holder, so I'm not sure how much of it is on the coin vs the holder.
    Doesn't look like any wear on high points, still quite a bit of luster, no huge distractions, a few bag marks but nothing too messed up.
    Solid coin overall, there's my analysis FWIW :)

    I'm at MS-Details. Nice looking coin but I can't help but interpret all the parallel lines on obverse and reverse as cleaning scratches.

    A beautiful coin destroyed by a harsh cleaning. Lines are everywhere so I said MS Details as I don’t see and signs of wear.

    MS 61 ....I don't see wear but plenty of hits and marks (none of which seem severe enough to make it go details)

    I agree with MS details, looks like a fairly dense patch of hairlines in the right obv field and next to UNI on the rev. They don't come much better struck than that, though.

    This coin needs to be viewed at additional various angles and lighting in order to assess a proper grade especially with the potential to be graded in the MS range. I know I don't like what appears to be cleaning hairlines (or scratches on the plastic holder??) more heavily on the obverse than on the reverse. There are areas on the reverse that are unclear due to the photo that may distort potential wear on the arrow shafts, eagles feather tips above right claw, neck feathers, large middle leaf at bottom left and eagle's left wingtip. If all my areas of concern are unfounded, then I'd go MS-62.

    MS DETAILS I think someone removed some scratches from the Obv. with sand paper.

    Nah, those pictures are clear enough to grade it accurately. I had no problem grading it, myself when I first saw it, before buying. It isn’t a bad set of pictures, nor is it an unusual case. There may be some surprises on the reveal, though.

    I too agree with MS detail, it has been cleaned though. Nice coin, thanks for sharing it.

    A bit of an exaggeration. lol. Yeah, there are some marks on the coin. That was acknowledged from the beginning. Know the definition of a mark-free coin? MS 70. :)

    She's a beauty, but I'm seeing too much interference, especially right of her, for a straight grade. She's MS64, otherwise, easy. But then she lucked out.
