Condition: I would grade this coin as a nice extremely fine or better. The details of the coin show are well preserved but show some wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The hair and laureate of the king retains much of its original details as does the Spanish arms on the reverse. Additionally, the inscriptions along the edges are still very well defined. The coin has some residual luster and nice eye appeal, and is problem free. It does have some minor scratches and bag marks, but nothing to worry about. It is in original circulated condition and looks great. It is better than the photos show. Please see photo for additional condition information.
