Your Opinion: 5 Dollar 1912 Indian Head

Hey guys,
how would you grade this nice Indian Head? I had a few ones in the hand now and I think that this one has still a good luster. It has more luster and less Details than the Denver mint type i posted a minuite ago.
Unfortunately it is very hard to take photos of these coins :-(

Thanks a lot for your help! :-)

The mint luster is a good indicator for traces of harm. Unfortunately it very hard to show it. That is why I made a video. Does it affect your Opinion about the coin?

It does have some nice luster but I'm with mark as it looks about 62. Lot of small contact marks. 

I think those marks on the Indian's cheek are going to hurt it pretty bad too.

Thank you very much for your opinion. I think that this coin would be MS 62 or MS 63. It has a lot of luster and just a few scratches. The leak of detail at the obverse seems to be normal. All the MS 65/66 pieces I can find at the Internet have a weak strike as well. I think that this coin is much better than the average and I am happy to have it in my type collection :)
