1807/6 Large 7 Cent Grade

Hey everyone, can you please assist me with what you think the grade on this is? Hard to tell if cleaned or not and grade on these older coins. Looks nice though.

    VF details. Cleaned and (mostly) retoned, and maybe micro porosity.

    It looks too good for the age? Or just easy to tell. I can never know

    The color in each of the photos indicates that the surfaces aren’t original. The coin appears to have been cleaned and retoned or recolored.

    I agree - the pinkish hue is typically indicative of cleaning. There’s also a pretty serious scratch under the chin that I would find overly distracting. If you are thinking of purchasing, I’d pass. If you own it, I’d consider selling and using the proceeds toward something with a bit more eye appeal even if that means a lower numerical grade.

    Thank you. I did not buy it. That's why I ask first always
