Grade Opinions For This CWT 127/295a

I think this is copper, the toning is a little dark to be brass. There is some red peeking through on the obv. and rev. perimeters. I've seen MS BN examples not as nice as this. I know that there aren't many slabbed, I found 9 total in circ. and Unc. for the 3 top TPGs. The copper composition is the rarest of this die marriage.

    I would call it XF45.... Looks like star 11 is doubled. Cheers, RickO

    I have to chuckle every time I see a guess the grade concerning exonumia. As I have said many times, there is no standard for grading tokens and medals. As such, grading will be all over the place as it is here in the opening remarks of this thread. We have somewhere between MS64+ and XF...how's that for a consensus?
    Grading will probably get more precise as time goes on when more and more tokens are slabbed. There will become a baseline for what is generally what. Until then, I advise all to go on eye appeal and rarity when purchasing exonumia. Don't chase the label.
    I see some luster in the above photos, but also some light wear. If it gets submitted it will like go AU55-low uncirculated MS62BN.
    But stranger things have happened due to what I already stated.
    Nice piece.

    I don't know... I like the look. However, the reverse may have enough flat spots that might be attributable to wear/cabinet friction and not a weak strike to preclude an MS grade

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.
