I have this coin for quite a while now, and it always was difficult to make pictures of. So I took the coin out of the 2x2 holder, and it helped a little. The coin is way darker though in hand, but I hope it's enough to give it a grade.
As it is listed in Krause as a semi key date:
13.50(F) 27.50(VF) 75.00(XF)

Unsure why KM #746 is a semi-key date as 1.2 million 2 Ore coins were minted that year compared to 615K the previous year and 865K in 1888. The value shown by NGC in their current World Coin Price Guide is VF-20 $5.-, XF-40 $20.- & MS-60 $75.-. I am not an experienced grader but would suggest your coin is XF-40.
I have 4 of these coins for the years 1874, 1875, 1896 & 1905.

Whoops! So sorry I somehow read "Sweden" rather than "Denmark" as the coin in question. It's late at night and I've had a long day!

The monogram should have its outline in VF.

There is some rim dings and edge wear, overall I would grade it at F-15.

Thanks guys, It's a difficult coin to make pictures of... all 3 pics are way off target when I have the coin in hand. But no problem, I can agree with the comments

Though I made a mistake by posting the wrong value:
I said: 13.50(F) 27.50(VF) 75.00(XF) but is should be 20.00(F) 75.00(VF) 160(XF).... only a small difference
