Ok I'll go first I guess . I see a lot of tiny scratches that might indicate that yes it was cleaned .

Using your loupe, can you detect any small traces of old cleaning compound in the nooks/crannies and crevices, ...the areas around the date, mottos or devices?

i look through my loop move the coin different angles under my LED light and the old kind of light bulb
and a have a magnifying lamp that like 2.5 x. it looks fine,

I agree, that last image really shows the "Hairlines" across the coin.....
Notice the 'dark band' surrounding the center device?
......and then the hairlines in the fields? This is indicative of a cleaned coin....JMO

Of course I would tend to see it 1st person to give you a 100% here

Hairlines show the coin has been rubbed with a cloth.

I should have been more specific: A facial tissue can also scratch like this - not just a non-cotton cloth.
