I picked this one up about a month or so ago from forum member amwldcoin. I was looking for another bust coin to add to the collection and this one caught my eye. I liked the original look it had when I first saw it. What do you think PCGS graded her?

    Last picture shows to me why it is EF, too much wear for AU.
