    From the photos provided, I'm guessing MS61, based on what looks like some hairlines on the cheek, and muted luster. In hand or with additional images, it may appear to be higher mint state. I'll also add that generally these small ANACS holders were fairly conservative (even more so the earliest ones).

    Very difficult to tell from the pictures.

    If no hairlines present, then anywhere from ms63 to ms65.

    If hairlines, then AU58 or even perhaps an Unc details.

    The images are not the easiest to read, but I could see this as a 63. In the future, if you can shoot an image straight on rather than at an angle, it would help us to guess much easier.

    I'd guess 63, those old 'soap bar' ANACS holders are pretty accurate, and often undergraded

    Was thinking between three and five before I looked at the other comments, but i am way too optimistic usually.

    @KollectorKing that is perfect!! I'll stand by guess of MS-63.

    I hereby change my vote to 62. I don't see anything that screams circulation, but it looks like there is a patch of light, parallel scratches in the right hand field.

    2nd set of pics much better.
    I'll say 63.
    I see no circulation wear or rub.
