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 beautiful uncirculated with all the being very well preserved. The coin is lightly toned with no observable wear and retains the most intricate on both sides. The coin is problem free with minor scratches and a minimum number of bag marks. The coin is much better than the photos suggest. It is a beautiful, great looking and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
