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 extremely fine with well preserved details and having wear throughout and is nicely toned. All its details are preserved, readable, and the coin is problem free. The coin has soiling and some stains in the form of dark spots especially on the obverse. The coin is better than the scan shows. It does have scratches, bag marks, and wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please see photo for condition information.
