Condition: For international buyers, please note that the new US postal rates for overseas shipping are very high and we are unable to change them. Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. Please check the cost of shipping before bidding. I would grade this coin as a nice very fine or much better. The details are all well preserved and readable. The coin is better than the scan shows. The coin has scratches, some hairlines, minor bag marks, wear to the high points especially where the fez sits on the head, which can be seen in the scan, and wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please see photo for additional condition information.
