    Thank you very much for your opinions. I think that this coin would be MS 62 or MS 63. It has a lot of luster and just a few scratches. The leak of detail at the obverse seems to be normal. All the MS 65/66 pieces I can find at the Internet have a weak strike as well. I think that this coin is much better than the average and I am happy to have it in my type collection :D

    Definitely 62-63. An AU would not have luster as shown in the video. ill go with 63.

    Curious, do you plan to keep it raw or have it professionally graded?

    It will stay raw. In Germany it is a quiet huge effort to get things gradet. On top of that it is quiet expensive (35 Euro at NGC and even more by PCGS). I think a slab is only interesting for selling this coin.
    I am just curious about the american way of coin grading. Thats why I asked you. Thanks once more for all the answers!

    I thought you were keeping it raw.

    Some people in this forum have a tendency to judge coins that I like much more critical than I do. Submitting my best US gold coins was a test for my ability to be aware of good qualities ;)
