    Photos are the culprit there, luster grazes/surface marks but agreed that it looks like a much deeper scratch in the images than it is in-hand.

    When I think MS60 I picture a coin that looks like it went through a garbage disposal(Morgan Dollar that is.. some issues may be different in MS60). This one certainly does not fit my imagination of MS60...

    Are some of the marks in the fields actually a die clash?

    Ahh see that here from Heritage

    Uncirculated (MS-60, 61, 62): An uncirculated coin with noticeable deficiencies, generally either an overabundance of bagmarks, a poor strike, or poor luster. Although most price guides will give a price for coins in MS-60 condition, in many cases this is a very unusual grade, with typical uncirculated pieces often grading somewhere in the MS-62 to MS-64 range depending on the series.

    So I am left with AU58 ;)

    My GTG pictures stunk on this one- looks a lot better in hand.

    AU-58. Some wear on the obverse. Pretty coin!

    I thought it a solid 58. And accurate grade at that. Green bean confirmed its eye appeal and originality

    Guessed the grade. Has CAC... so would resubmittal get you MS 60?

    I think it would come back 58 again; I don’t personally think it is chewed up looking enough for 60 so if anything it might come back at 62 if I dipped it briefly (the skin is thick and I see a lot of hidden luster beneath it in-hand) but I like it right where it is. The coin circulated briefly, should be AU58.
