    Looks cleaned to me (probably dipped).
    If I'm right then grade doesn't mean much.

    Something makes me think there is a hint of wear and thus AU 58
    (might be misinterpreting weak strike though)

    I somehow missed the part in the title that said "OGH" but for others, that should be a clue that it is a straight grade since PCGS didn't have details holders in that era (details coins were sent back in a flip-known as the dreaded "body bag").

    65 by todays standards.

    Strike and luster hold it back. By OGH standards, I actually wouldn't be surprised to see this in a 64 holder.

    If its in an OGH, then I don't think it would have FB (I don't think they designated it then, did they?) Either way, it doesn't earn FB (middle set are quite mushy).

    Low by one. Not surprised. I thought by today’s standards it could be 66. I thought it just missed fb

    Got the grade right.

    Well, I guess they did designate FB back then.

    But they didn't do a good job of it - those pictures do not show FB.
