Condition: I would grade this coin as a very fine with honest wear commensurate with its age. The coin has all of its details still evident with wear to the high points and much of the details of the lady saint's dress and features. The papal arms on the obverse shows wear to its center but its edges are still very well preserved. The legend and design along the edge has considerable wear too but is still decipherable. The coin has scratches and dings, which can be seen in the photos. The coin is nicely toned and has nice eye appeal. Be that as it may, it would make a nice addition to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
