    Not capable of grading from these photos, too much blur/stain to make a qualified answer. Nice hand, though. Also, cannot see booming luster from photo.

    Definitely not mint state.

    I’ll say AU 55.

    The “booming luster” isn’t apparent in the images provided. I’ll guess AU58, however.

    55 but I'd probably be at 58.

    Nice coin from what I can see. Definetly a good strike.
    Don't take it personally, I struggle with good images myself.
    Your image is too dark with many shadows. Give it another try with better lighting.

    58 seems correct, as others mentioned the scans are not great.

    I’m not seeing much along the lines of “boom” from the pics, therefore I’ll go with AU-55.

    When I said “booming luster,” it applies to the grade. Booming luster does not always apply to MS coins. I believe booming luster could apply to any AU coin.
