No fair peeking...
I'll take a wild guess at G6.

I like G6 too. Nice back rim, front not bad.
if straight, probably 6/8.

I'd pay AG money for that any day
Probably net graded for those old scratches. That's Good-6 sharpness.
This was back in the days when PCGS and NGC wouldn't even slab "problem" coins but would just send them back in a body bag (and still take your submission $). So since it's an early coin they probably just silently net graded it?

Many coins with problems in the early slabs were silently net graded. At that time, the grading services didn't do details grades and the only other option was sending it back unslabbed in a "body bag" which was reserved for coins with significant problems. I'm guessing that coin had a couple grading points knocked off due to those heavy scratches.
Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.
Someone was in a bad mood that day
I’d be very happy with that coin in my collection, regardless of the old scratch
Wow! I was going to agree with G6 and vacillating whether there was enough eye detail present to make VG8...
Will never CAC, unfortunately. Definitely net graded.

Thought it was better than 02, but the obverse scratch/gouge made me think it would be details. Cheers, RickO
