Condition: I would grade the coin as extremely fine. This is a great looking coin that is over 280 years old. It is nice looking and has great eye appeal. It shows general wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. A true rarity in such nice grade (Krause recognizes XF as being the highest grade to price).
