    Hey guys :),
    how would you grade this nice Indian Head? I bought it as a raw coin, what is not
    suspicious here in Germany. NGC says that this year has usualy a rather weak strike.
    I made a video as well, because of its hard to show the luster on photos.

    Thank you very much for the opinions :).
    I made further pictures that might help to make a more propriate judgement. I find it very hard to grade Indian Heads. On the one hand this coin has no larger scratches, but on the other hand there's a little leak of luster behind the eagles head. I am curious if the new pictures will influence your grading.

    I have trouble grading them too. The bag marks I'm seeing probably bump it down below MS-62, but I don't see anything that would push it below AU-58.

    These include Indians are a challenge for even the best to grade. I love them and I would think yours is an uncirculated example. Beyond that I believe it would be up to the particular grader.
