Am I being too hard on it? The reverse looks nice.
Yup, you are. . Obverse isn’t that bad.
Exactly. Lots of die polish on this one, so the fields have die polish lines.
OK, I just homed in on the reeding marks on the cheek.But I had a feeling I was low.
Yeah, but not really PFA. Humans look at the eyes. Marks lower on her cheek not as much a distraction, though of course would be better if it was in the hair.
Looking at it again, I could agree with @spirityoda , It is a pretty coin.
As for the cameo effect. It is so hard to judge in photos. Based on the photos, I suspect it's a PL.
No it isn’t. The high reflectivity exaggerates the roller mark on the cheek about twofold. Coins like this are brutal to photograph properly.
Just FYI, the “scratches” on the back are die polish lines, not scratches. Die polish leaves striations in the fields.
