What a fair price for this coin?

I have had an offer on this coin from a person locally, but not very knowledgeable on bust half dollars.

    VF details, cleaned. A common date coin. If the offer you have seems in any well reasonable, take it.

    Almost looks fake. Is it a real bust trying to look fake? ;)

    Sell it, and then take your customer to lunch ......

    A bust half was the first coin that I ever sold. It made me realize it's possible to be a dealer as opposed to a collector. It was 1976, I had taken some coins to work. "How much is this one ?", a co-worker asked. I quoted a price, knowing I can get more of these for less, just started selling.

    Yep.... sell it .... good price for a cleaned coin..... Cheers, RickO
