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 a nice very fine or better. The coin is soiled and toned. It shows wear throughout but is still very readable and shows good details on both sides. Look at the King's hair and the details within the arms. The coin has a few bag marks and scratches, but these are inconsequential. The coin is much better than the photos suggest. This is a nice coin to add to your collection of British coins. Please see scan for additional condition information.
