I think I got ripped a bit when I got the following 1857-A Napoleon III 50 franc .90 gold piece.  It looks way better than examples I've seen of inferior grades of the same exact coing.  Pics are below:


above is the preview of the coin in assay case, with particular assayer and grade not visible to prevent bias either way.

Any opinions would be awesome.  The edges are as perfect as I can tell through the case.  This coin has a big difference in value depending on grade, so was wondering if it's worth it to regrade, I'm thinking it might be.  That may change if you guys have good opinions to share.  Thanks!!
