About Good (AG3)
1793 Flowing Hair Half Cents mintage was plagued by poor copper planchets and striking issues. If you compare the EF45 example, in the images below, with the AU55 image then you might think they're backwards or mis-graded. However if you look closer you will see that the AU55 has sharper features but was struck weakly on the hair. The hair is one of the high points of the design.

Now, look closer at the EF45 image and you will see wear even on some of the lower relief design features. Furthermore images often make it difficult for grading a coin and light reflections can fool the eye.
