Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade the coin as extremely fine or better. The coin is nicely toned and has well preserved details with some wear to the high points. It has a few light stains and some soiling, which can be seen in the photos. The coin has some minor surface scratches and bag marks but still has nice eye appeal. It has wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. The coin is problem free and has a few spots on both sides. Please see photos for additional condition information.
