Condition: I would grade this coin as a good about uncirculated or better with all of its details being very well preserved and having minimum wear to the highest points. The coin has some surface marks and bag marks but these are minor and do not distract of its beauty or quality. The coin retains quite a bit of luster and has nice eye appeal. It is in original almost uncirculated condition and looks great. It is better than the photos suggest. It has minimum wear commensurate with its age and about uncirculated status. Please see photo for additional condition information.
