Condition: I would grade this coin as extremely fine. Its details are well preserved and has a nice eye appeal with quite a bit of luster. It does have wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. The coin shows some double striking along the edges of the obverse and reverse, but nothing distracting. Be that as it may, the coin is as struck with nice details and much luster. The coin is much better than the photos suggest. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty of this coin and for additional condition information.
