This is AU58+...unless allowances are made for market grading or “as struck”. A comparison with a FH 1930 coin at NGC shows much more clean detail...imho...Spark
@Spark1951 that there is enough wear to warrant an AU58+ grade, missing the uncirculated mark.
Three sprigs are visible - True.
Clear separation between the hairline and forehead - True.
Earhole is visible - True.
I go with FH by a comfortable margin.
I also don't pick up on the wear on the knee / shin. I think I see a tiny bit of flattening due to an incomplete strike, with a bit of reflected luster off that area. This incompleteness is very common in coins I see, and I think this is much better than most.
Let's not forget the reverse. Just misses FH, just misses 65 . . . .
Missed the FH however . . . . . .
The full head seems to be clear and undeniable to me for all the reasons that @RonSanderson illustrated.
