    Nice luster on the reverse.
    Why is there toning on the head/obverse and not the reverse?
    It must have been stored before being encapsulated.
    Great to see coins like this.

    AU 53. Back seems better, front does not have as much definition.

    But it would be plenty nice in my set.

    AU50 (and before I looked at anybody else’s)

    I’m the high grader, AU-55. I am assuming that the less than flattering toning has not been called “environmental damage.”

    I think it's fairly graded at 50, but I'm going to say they were ultra conservative and go with 45 (or 45+ if it's a late enough generation holder).

    I'll go with AU-55 but I don't really care for the look of the coin.

    If you are selling that one for EF-45 money, going by the photos, I am a buyer. If the coin is in a 45 holder, it's a crack-out candidate.

    I consistently under grade these coins, espcially the pieces that the experts call EF. I think these coins most go from AU to VF when they are in circulation and are never in EF. This one is definely an AU.

    Here are some photos from the Heritage auction site, both PCGS graded.

    EF-45, Old Green Label

    This is one of the coins where every grading point is critical.
    While not MS it's also not XF.
    I think the consensus AU is correct. It's all a matter of is it
    50,53,55,58. The reverse is the stronger side so not 58. If both sides are added (53/58) and divided then I think AU 55. Even 50/58 would be in between 53 and 55, then it's a tough decision.
