Condition: I would grade the coin as a beautiful extremely fine or much better with all the details being well preserved. The coin is lightly toned with minimum wear to the high points, but still retains the most intricate details especially in the building on the reverse. The coin is problem free and has a few scratches, minor dings to the edge, and a minimum number of bag marks. The coin is much better than the photos suggest. It is a beautiful, great looking and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
