Opinions on a 1887 N172 Old Judge...

Here's the scans of the front and back:

I recently acquired this card and wanted some opinions on the staining on the front. Is this normal tobacco staining? I was going to send it in for grading regardless of the condition to authenticate it at least. It could be trimmed too, but I have a hard time telling in person, thus the grading. The staining does not affect the background and it has naturally faded like alot of Old Judge's so it does not appear artificial. I got a good price on it, so very little risk in the purchase. Any comments would be well appreciated. Thanks,

Yours appears untrimmed and the staining could be from anything within the last 123 years! Here are scans of mine if that helps (mine is SGC 10 because of the paper loss on the back):
