Condition: I would grade this coin as a good fine to almost very fine, may be even better. The coin has honest wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. It shows light gray toning and wear to the high points especially on the reverse to the chest of the eagle. The reverse shows more wear than the obverse. The coin also has scratches to the surface as well as bag marks throughout. Be that as it may, this is a nice coin to add to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
