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 this coin as a beautiful about uncirculated or much better with most of its original mint luster and having all the details very well preserved. The coin has excellent eye appeal and is beautiful. The coin has no observable problems. It is much better than the scan shows. It does have minor bag marks, a few minor scratches and a few minor nicks to the rim (please see scan). It also has a small stain or soiling spot on the bottom of the obverse. The coin has minimum wear, if any, commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please see photo for condition information.
