Condition: I would grade this coin as a good lustrous extremely fine or better with quite a bit of residual mint luster and having all the details very well preserved. The coin has excellent eye appeal and is beautiful. It is much better than the scan shows. It does have bag marks, scratches and nicks throughout the fields. The coin also has a few minor nicks to the rim, and has wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. Never the less the coin is beautiful and would be a nice addition to your collection. Please see scan for additional condition information.
