Condition: I would grade this coin as an extremely fine to about uncirculated. The coin has all of its details very well preserved with minimum wear. The coin has a green colored stain below the pope's ear. The coin has scratches in the fields on both sides and have a few minor bag marks. The coin also has some minor hairlines in the fields on the reverse. Be that as it may, it has very nice eye appeal and would make a nice addition to your collection.
