I'll post the grade tomorrow.

I'm guessing the netted it for the mark in the right field. It's pretty minor, and I would think it would be acceptable for coin that is 213 years old.

Currently have a bunch of different Anacs certificate type coins, if you have any and are willing to sell, please PM me.

    Nice coin. Looks like it has the luster to go XF. Wear might keep it at high VF although the date is often weakly struck.

    XF-40. Nice coin.

    VF25. Love the coin.

  • BaleyBaley Posts: 21,610 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Great coin and interesting GTG!
    I'll guess VF30, very nice color.

    I'm in the VF-30 w/a bump to VF-35 for the lovely color factor. A little too much wear to hit the XF realm for me.

    I am thinking VF30

  • ChrisH821ChrisH821 Posts: 3,492 ✭✭✭✭✭

    25 came to mind first but not my series so probably wrong.

    40ish

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭✭✭

    VF35 and gorgeous toning might raise it to XF40. Nice coin.

    Has to be at the very least a vf30.

    Nice T-11, the last Draped Bust half dollar made. These are tough to grade, VF30.

    My initial reaction was 20, then convinced it's a 30. Actually I think it's a F/VF/XF/AU depending on which element you are looking at. The strike, the wear pattern, the luster peeking out and the color all move my brain around (which is why I let so many other people go first).

    There is indeed a lot going on here, the details are in the 20 range, but the strike on these is almost never full to start with, so that and the luster tends to increase the grade a little imo.

    The colors are very attractive and add to the value (even if not the texhnical grade) , while likely acquired secondary after an old cleaning, possibly through circulation ages ago.

    There are some field marks I'd like to take a glass to, they detract but not sure how much..

    Those saying VF20, imo, are unlikely to be able to buy it at that level, even if slabbed VF20.

    Based on the pics, I certainly don't find the marks in the obv right field distracting. Great looking coin!

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 3,064 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I believe I would crack it out and resubmit. Love the coin and the toning.

    Nice!

  • rickoricko Posts: 72,551 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Late to the game... but, to me, looks like the scratches in the field may have caused the 30 grade...otherwise would consider it a 40. Cheers, RickO

  • coinJPcoinJP Posts: 9,034 ✭✭✭

    Was going to say 35.Great looking coin with pleasant toning. The scratches don't bother me. Depending on how deep they are I can see it in a straight grade holder.

  • BaleyBaley Posts: 21,610 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Awesome coin and great example of fair net grading. Some
    Strict collectors feel that any problem subtracts All the points, some old time insiders apparently feel that no problem subtracts any points from the "Technical Grade"..
    Here good old ANACS subtracted 10 points for the sum of the scratches ( we clearly see more than one, but not many more)
    This is the same calculus i used to guess.
