Check photograde again and look for luster as well as detail.
Thanks, This makes sense and I had thought of that but it still looked maybe reversed.
The peace dollar example you mention is one of them - there is such a wide range of strike variations across the series that it becomes difficult to grade them in circulated grades. For example, the coin that they chose for XF45 has an absolutely *abysmal* strike. Comparing that to the AU-50, the strike is better but as longshot mentioned you also have to look at the remaining luster. It is clear to me that the luster is more dim on the 45.
Guess the Grade

? There's really no confusing 58s and 60s, 60s are overwhelmingly and inch away from being details coins (especially today) and 58s are an inch away from being 63ish or better (especially today)
