Have been busy but wanted your thoughts on the grade. Yes I know my I phone shots are terrible.
AU55? Doesn't look to be too much wear, and love that type of toning... nice piece.
I guess XF
AU55 by US grading standards. Obviously worn but only slightly. Very attractive toning.
How's the luster?
IMO better than EF but softly struck on lions rev. and hair detail obv. with plenty of toning.
Actually worn dies and NOT softly struck - see rims and reeding and edge. Would have to net this out at 55 also.
I will pull it out of the cardboard and check out the luster. In hand quick look it looks good.
thanks for your input @stork @7Jaguars @291fifth @mvs7 @bidask
Overall I think its a Good coin.
XF45 Nice original coin!
No wear on the cheeks, no wear on the brown, only slight wear on the headpiece at highest points. No wear on reverse except on high points of lions and angel. No obvious wear on fields anywhere, Small dings on neckline and under ear. I'd give it a weak strike au58. Can't tell about luster though. Nice coin by anybody's standards.
