Condition: I would grade the coin as a good uncirculated or much better with all the details being well preserved. The coin retains all of its original luster and has great eye appeal. The coin has a few scratches, and some minor bag marks. It has no observable wear commensurate with its age and uncirculated status. The coin is lustrous and problem free. The coin looks much better than the photos suggest. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty of the coin and for additional condition information.
