Condition: I would grade the coin as lustrous about uncirculated or better with all the details being very well preserved. The high points in the coin show some minor wear, while the fields are clean and lustrous. The coin is problem free with some minor scratches and minor bag marks. It does have a couple of minor dings to the edge, but truly nothing to worry about. This is a beautiful, problem free and great looking coin, which would make a great addition to your collection.
