Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this coin as uncirculated proof with all of its details being well preserved and mirror like fields. It is beautiful with no wear that we could find and is problem free. It does have a few scratches and some minor bag marks all of which can be seen in the photos. Just a great looking coin which would make a great addition to your collection.
