Not the best pictures I know, but soon off to PCGS for grading, gold shield, etc.

I really like its look!

    Decent, original, wholesome, VF35 or XF40. I'm a little concerned about those marks in the right obverse field -- an old vertical scratch? From what I see in the pic it could be significant or it could not.

    Looks like it should straight grade.

    Pleasing VF35.
    I call it a decent DANSCO 7070 coin.

    NIce looking piece of circ silver.

    I think it has a shot at XF40... the old scratch in the obverse field might need a second look with coin in hand, but I don't see an obvious reason why it wouldn't grade.

    I like it. Looks 40 to me.
    I have several in XF 40 and yours has more meat left.

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 22,666 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I thought VF30 initially, but I’m a bit tight, perhaps XF...

  • 1Mike11Mike1 Posts: 4,414 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm thinking VF but the dark spot by her feet and the dark spot by the eagle's claw may hurt it.

    Nice original coin. I'd guess VF35. Good luck.

    I'll go with a 35 as well maybe a 40, I like

    That's my grade too but checking my graded ones, the TPG's CAN be more lenient.
    You just never know.

    Looks like a 35 to me.... could go 40..... Might get details for the obverse scratch, but cannot be certain from the picture. Cheers, RickO

    Beautiful coin! I am leaning toward VF 30. I like the "skin of trade" that this coin reveals. I think it will straight grade based on these pictures. Please let us know how it turns out!

  • savoyspecialsavoyspecial Posts: 7,268 ✭✭✭✭

    xf40, nothing really stands out about it to me

    I have always preferred the 75-cc or 76 (p) in this series


  • ashelandasheland Posts: 22,666 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Indeed, it does have some scratches in the field, they don’t bother me, and I doubt they will bother the graders, but tell me what you think…

  • AvocetAvocet Posts: 226 ✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for sharing-- we these pics, I bump the guess to

  • erwindocerwindoc Posts: 4,927 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looking at it up close now, Im going to go for VF details. I think they will ding you for the scratch.

  • TPRCTPRC Posts: 3,739 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I agree with a ng-scratched-xf details

    I fear the scratch will bother the graders. Hope I'm wrong. I do like the originality

    I like the coin as an album filler and the die crack is cool. I do think the surfaces will bother the graders although I have seen rougher ones in a PCGS slab.

    The scratch in rt obverse field kills it for me. Otherwise wb nice VF. Not something put more money into - would liquidate eBay blowout.
