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 uncirculated with all of its being well preserved. The coin has no observable wear and retains most of its original luster. It has some scratches and minor bag marks but is truly a beautiful coin worthy of a spot in your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
