    Attractive coin--nicely patinated IMHO.

    Sorry, but no it was probably the oldest 1800 coin I had purchased at the time. Had a bit to learn, huh?

    The coin looks to be approximately AU50 details, cleaned.

    Pretty much the same as other responders. I'd probably call that one EF/AU details, cleaned

    That's an O-108a as well. Hard to tell, but in addition to the die chip in N ... both of the reverse cracks, and the obverse crack are somewhat visible beneath the cleaning. R3 rarity

    45 shot 50, wiped awhile ago.
    A little envelope or windowsill toning would enhance the eye appeal, IMO.
