    I see wear on the eagle's leg, Liberty's left breast and on the fold of the flag

    I grade it impossible. Impossible to grade from a single static photo of each side that is. My guess however is MS65...;)

    I'll go with a 64. Beautiful coin!

    The photo is over exposed but considering it’s not hiding some wear, it looks very clean, well struck, and the luster & originality look good as well.

    If it's not something silly like environmental damage, I'm going with MS 64
    I think it's a bit too dark to get a color bump.

    Odd coin. Seems like there are some really well struck details mixed in with some normal weak points for a walker. Im thinking the grade came down to the eye appeal and toning. While it is clean from marks, if that toning is that dark, then i think they (NGC?) said MS64.

    ...areas which are commonly weakly struck.

    I think this one graded MS64, but the dark rusty toning, reduced luster and weak strike prevented a higher grade.

    I thought it was a 64+ but since that’s not an option I’ll say it’s a 65.

    Well, your photos are tough - the obverse is underlit, the reverse is overlit.

    I'll grade it MS-pretty.

    Seriously though, I think I see some marks hidden in the obverse toning, enough to call it a 65. The luster is going to be hindered by the thick toning as well, and these really need strong luster to make 66.
