It is MS, but honestly, if you want to sell, a professional grading service will notice the dirt between the letters and know it was was dug, likely bringing the grade down a little just under MS- high AU- unless you clean it, which is a risk as well. (ultrasonic water bath ?)

I may be wrong, they may be less rigid now, but that's how most of them seem to think. and technically it is correct- they can't see parts of the coin under the little dirt spots to judge completely.
