I'm with brian. But not as generous. She looks new but with the curve for Peace plus what the dark toning may or may not be hiding I'd gather itll be adjudicated on the 2/3 line, probably going 3 is my guess if the grader doesn't see an obvious wipe mark or some other disqualifier..

I think I just sent one of these out in JBs bulk too oddly enough.

I'm also with Brian on the MS part. But is any of that black in the toning chunky? To me it looks like you could be right on the edge of environmental damage

Low MS, maybe AU58 if there's wear I can't see, but the color looks borderline environmental damage.

Thanks all
Interesting spread
AU 50 to MS 64
Reminds me of when I ran a Lexington Rare Coin Gallery location in Lex KY back in 79-80
People would call and ask how much their coin was worth
Always would tell them to bring it in as it was based on date mint & condition (pre knowledge about VAM's)
Co worker joked and said
You shoulda told them to hold it closer to the phone!
:D

Edit
Should we give this rascal a bath?

So I gave her a bath last nite
ammonia and a couple of drops of dawn
Images aren't the best
Obverse is flashier in hand then the image shows
reverse is a matte finish
uncovered lots of hairlines from a previous cleaning to the reverse
Gonna call her AU 50 cleaned
