Honestly, the surfaces look immaculate and the luster and eye appeal are both off the charts from that photo. The only thing that prevented me from saying MS67 was that the strike is a little soft in areas and many of the stars are incomplete.
BTW, very cool die clash on the reverse.
An absolutely beautiful coin, with no issues whatsoever. That means that certain folks will grade it as AU 58, because of the average to slightly below average strike.
For some reason though I want to guess UNC Details-Altered Surfaces (or even lightly cleaned).
I also think I see a patch of ultra light hairlines left of Miss Liberty which should limit this coin to MS63 but I think it got milked for ms65 with multiple submissions. A 66? . . . Not in my opinion.
However, the clean surfaces and decent luster should get this coin into a gem holder fairly easily.
There’s a piece of something hanging on in the field just East of her left elbow.
