Condition: I would grade this coin as an about uncirculated or better with all the details being very well preserved and having quite a bit of its original mint luster and great eye appeal. The coin is much better than the scan shows. It does have minor scratches, some bag marks, and a few minor nicks to the rim. The coin has very little wear, if any, commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please see photo for additional condition information as it is part and parcel of our description.
