Help grading a 21-S Walker

What technical grade would you assign this 21-S Walker? I know it has some rim and surface issues but I like it! Thanks for your grade input!

    I would guess VF details, not a bad looking coin.

    Reverse is better than the obverse - net VF25. Maybe a details coin because of the rim ding but since you aren't going to get it professionally graded who really cares? A nice Walker for an album.

    I'm between 25 and 30. The reverse is way stronger imho. Thanks for the input! I am not at all familiar with this date. Got her for a bargain price at a recent show.

    I am in the VF camp. Like the yellowish effect on/around the 🌞

    vf25 in details; the significant rim ding (whether or not arbitrarily considered by a TPG to be enough to consign it to "details grade) devalues it from there, to me.

    Agree, very close to or at VF 30.

    I'd go VF-20. The mark on the obverse rim is there, and it knocks off at least 5 points, but I think that it should grade.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    VF20 details. A coin that should sell easily to a collector working on an album collection.

    It’s a strong VF 30is but that rim ding might cost it a grade. That said album buyer will pay a premium (discounted) price for that coin
