I bought a bunch of 90% over the weekend...

found this...

Can't decide if it is VF25 or 30...perhaps ownership adds 5 (or 10) points.

What say ye?

    I say VF25 is definitely reasonable for that coin and I also say "nice score!"

    Score for 90%, I originally thought Fine, and not my series, but Photograde would have this at G8. A Fine will have a sharp date, shield complete around its outer edge, and almost all the major detail of the feathers will show. Seems missing on coin. What am I missing.

    Using Coinfacts, and images on the Bay, it looks about 20-25 to my eye. Sharp date is not a prereq per the images on Coinfacts, esp the F15 or vf 20. Shield also has weakness around the rim in VF25. So again, I'm not sure what grade it is, but I'm sure it isn't F 15 or below. Or is that ownership adding points?
