    I'm at AU. Might be to many hits and chatter for MS.

    Looks like it has strong luster from what I can tell. Light chatter and a mark on her chin but that's more forgivable on gold coins. The thing I'd be concerned about is what looks like wear on the high points. Based on these pics I'd give it a 62

    AU-58. More comely than a '62. :)

    High point wear leads me to AU58.

    Nice coin.

    Nice luster, but a little on the baggie side. I'd go AU-58 on it....tricky little bugger!

    Definitely too many hits and scrapes to make it MS but it looks to have lovely luster.

    Personally I’m MS60 being on the more forgiving side. Even though I’m good with a authenticated AU58 it’s just really subjective because you can see it’s UNC but those bag marks really pull away from the eye appeal. We’ll see I’m submitting it next week for grading. Keep tuning in.

    It looks like it has a light over all rub. The mark on the chin would not make it an AU.

    ryang, agree on the AU58 reasoning you mention. However, with the amount of mint luster remaining I would be surprised if it comes back less than an MS60.

    Gut feel from the pics was AU. I could change my mind if it were in hand.

    AU 58, but it wouldn't surprise me if it graded MS.

    55 or 58. Better than many out there in this grade range.
