PS- twist my arm hard enough and I might go 55.
Daring to be different I guess.
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.
But it would be plenty nice in my set.
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
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.
