1895-S Barber Half Dollar PCGS AU55

I have to be honest (always....), this is truly a head-scratcher. I fully expected CAC Green. I was rather amazed when it didn't sticker. I spent a good bit of time reviewing the coin on my own. I am still amazed that it didn't sticker. The coin is exceptional. Well struck. Beautifully original. Antique patina that is alive with underlying luster. Clean and free of distractions. Oh, and for good measure, properly graded. What is a truly original AU55 Barber half supposed to be, if not this?!
