    Better reverse than obverse. I'll guess VF20.

    Nice coin!

    Daggone, must not be my series at all, I even went to photograde and could only come up with a F12 max. Hopefully, everyone else is right.

    Looks F15 to me. Nice original super key!

  • Steven59Steven59 Posts: 8,151 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Stark contrast between obverse and reverse. Obverse looks VG10 but reverse looks VF20 (or a bit better)
    so net F15

    I agree with the above, the reverse looks a 20 but the obverse jaw, beard, hair and head just to flattened by wear and maybe strike to get there. I will go with 15.

    Love that Milled British (1830-1960)
    Well, just Love coins, period.

    This is one of those coins that needs both sides individually graded.

    Would you like to buy some of my coins ? LOL !!!

  • seanqseanq Posts: 8,562 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The reverse is nicer as others have mentioned, I think F15 is a decent "splitting the baby" compromise grade. Perfect for an album, will you crack it out?

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    I've have given consideration to cracking it out along with my '14-D.

    Why not submit it to CAC for a sticker?

  • SimonWSimonW Posts: 557 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It looks really good as a 15, I would have said 20. I like it where it is though.

    I'm BACK!!! Used to be Billet7 on the old forum.

    Late to the party. Nice and wholesome.

    Not really my series, but it sure looks like PCGS nailed the right grade to me (they usually do IMO)

    I would keep it in the slab. This coin has been heavily counterfeited and the slab attests to its authenticity.

    A perfectly graded specimen of a very collectable and scarce coin.

    True, honest wear. Nice surfaces too.

    Agreed!

    No clue how I wrote 30, I was at 20. 2024 is beginning to worry me :o

    If I do anything with this coin it will be cracked out of it's holder and go into my Whitman Classic album.

    I always keep the slab and label after cracking. I use a dremel tool for the job. My crackouts are very neat.
