    MS

    Lower MS for the same reason @VanHalen mentioned. MS63 at best, in my interpretation of the images

    AU

    AU - among other areas, look at the apparent rub on and surrounding the V on the reverse.

    Apparently the grading standards are a little looser than they used to be so probably MS. The common "no cents" variety, there was a choice as in some burger joints "no fries".

    It matters if, for purposes of sharpening their grading skills, someone wants to learn to distinguish between an AU and an Unc. example.

    Yes, of course. Sorry, I think that came across more globally dismissive than I meant it.

    In my opinion (not guarantee 😉) because there appears to be light wear in some places, as well as friction in the fields.
