Condition: I would grade the coin as a good extremely fine or much better with a lustrous appearance and having all of its details well preserved. The coin has some scratches which are evident in the photos, a few bag marks and several minor small dings to the rim. The coin also has some slight double striking which is obvious in some of the letters on the obverse. It also has some minor soiling within the legends especially on the obverse and a few minor stains, but truly nothing to distract from the beauty of the coin. Finally, the coin has wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. Please see photos for additional condition information.
