Cherry picked 2+2=11A

My cherry picking drought is over. This is the first VAM 11A I have cherried or have even seen in the wild.
This will be going in my order to ANACS this summer.
What do you think of the grade?

I voted...AU53. These get hammered on grade because of the rarity of MS examples, IMO

I went AU55 but would also agree with John if it goes AU53.
That's a sweet pick. This VAM has always eluded me .

Thanks to everyone for taking the poll and your comments.
I did forget to mention that the dies are not rotated on this one, so it must be a late die state of this VAM.
I am thinking AU55-58 area but of course I am biased.

ANACS 53 details it is. :cry: Some you win, some you lose.
36% of the VAM community was correct as for grade. THANKS for your input.
Still not sure what details it is. Cleaned, dipped, scratched? I'm befuddled.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.
