Condition: I would grade this coin as a nice very fine. All the details are preserved and readable showing wear especially near the bottom of the obverse and general wear to the high points. The coin is nicely toned, has nice eye appeal, and is better than the scan shows. It has scratches, bag marks, and s few small dings to the rim. The coin also has wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. Please carefully view the scan for complete condition information.
