Condition: I would grade this coin as an about uncirculated or much better with all the details being very well preserved and has nice eye appeal. The coin has some stains which can be seen in the scan. It is much better than the scan shows. It does have minor scratches, a few minor nicks to the rim, and wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin has great eye appeal.
