Yup, luster in reverse field has been affected by rub. Definitely AU 58 for my money.

It looks like an AU55 to me. An MS61 holder wouldn't surprise me a bit though.

 

I see it's a newer ANACS slab and they have been tighter lately.

AU-55.

 

There is obvious friction in the fields. This is what the old time dealers called "commercial Unc."

I'd have to go AU-55 with details. The wear doesn't appear that bad, but there is several small gouges and a whole lot of pitting on the obverse lowering eye appeal and grade. And what is going on under the wing?

Under the wing is just bag friction. I would agree with Bill, AU55. The coin still has a lot of mint luster for the grade.

Looks to me like it's been wiped, but that could be the photo, also looks like an old ICG holder, so it might have graded high AU to Low MS, I guess I'll go with AU-58.
