Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. 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 a nice very fine or better with all the details being well preserved and having nice eye appeal. The coin is nicely toned with embedded soil in the calligraphy especially on the reverse. It has a few minor scratches, a few bag marks, and wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin is much better than the photos suggest. The only thing we see with coin is a nick above the king's eye on the obverse which can be seen in the photos. Other than that it is problem free. Again the coin has nice eye appeal with general wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please see photos for additional condition information.
