How much is the fields of this coin going to impact its grade?

I realize this is a world coin, but I know that a lot more people frequent this forum. The little scratches, nicks, etc that you see on the coin, how would they impact its ultimate grade? Based on what you see, what grade would you give it?

    MS64 for the obverse, as a SWAG. Need to see the reverse.

    I don't know the series or the particulars of what these look like in pristine state, but the image makes the luster look mostly lacking, and the rim and parts of the design appear to have high point rub ... so, low to mid AU is my guess.

    Also, based on that take, the marks in question shouldn't impact the grade.

    Interesting coin. I like the desgn.

    That’s a nice coin. Agree that the high spots have wear but not bad. AU is my guess

    There appears to be west on the high points of the lion, as well as throughout the fields. Looks AU to me, though one side is missing…

    Lightly circulated, lack of luster and wear marks.

    I would say mid AU... depending on the other side of the coin. Cheers, RickO

    But who can resist a great picture of a great looking coin, even if it is darkside?

    You are correct! As I stated as well, except there isn’t much action in the world coin forum and if I wanted quick replies this is where one has to come. Thank you for your grade.

    For those that want to see the other side, here you go! For those that think it doesn’t belong here, pretend you don’t see it and move along!
