References: It is KM #97.
Condition: I would grade the coin as choice VF or much better (the more we examine the coin the more we feel the coin is an EF to AU but you be the judge). The coin is very nicely and evenly toned and shows light overall even and honest wear. The coin has a few bumps to the edge and some minor marks in the fields such as scratches and bag marks. It is in original circulated condition with wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. It looks great and would make a great addition to your collection. It is better than the photos suggest. Please see photo for additional condition information.
