This should be guessable pretty quickly, even without any other info...

    That's the reverse. Can we see the obverse?

    I didn't say that's the reverse, but you're right. It is. The obverse gives it away, though. :-)

    I'll post in an hour or two before I go to bed. I'm surprised it's taken even this long for and ID. I said that it's guessable. If you guess right, you'll know it.

    _ just thumbed thru my Redbook and I gave up. I'm going to guess a commemorative 50c.

    I thought for sure someone on the board would jump all over this! @Married2Coins is right, but didn't go far enough. The Stone Mountain commem is one of the most "common" lowball types. This one is just a little lower than most!

    Nothing but (lots of) honest wear here. The speckling is in the toning; the surfaces are smooth.

    I’m guessing that @pocketpiececommems would get this. For a circulated commem aficionado, the recessed areas in the central right areas on the reverse are a useful clue. These correspond to areas between the legs and wings of the eagle and are prominent on my P01 example, which is well worn but has a bit more detail than the OP coin.

    Looks like it would grade P-1 for sure.
