Obverse is out of focus, I can not give an opinion on that. The coin has luster but the motted toning on the obverse is not my taste. I am concerned about the black stains on the eagles (right facing) wing. The shield shows the rivets well but Liberty and most of the reverse appears to have a weak strike. Perhaps the weak reverse is due to the metal flowing into the obverse during the strike? Tuff coin to strike well. Minus the stains and the black toning this might be a nice coin, but we have to look at it as it is presented not what it could be. It shows enough luster to be a candidate for conservation but removing the stains may prove to be difficult... I feel finding a better SLQ is not hard. I would pass. Time is on your brothers side. Enjoy the journey.
