I like it alot. How would you grade it?

A few spots here and there acetone wouldn't remove.

The obverse has a few weird streaks just over the first star to the left of "1". Maybe has been cleaned? the reverse looks all natureal though so why clean just one side of the coin? So maybe it's not cleaned at all?

anyways, my uneducated grading skills wants to give it a VF35, maybe a little less.

How would you grade it?

thanks in advance

I believe that orange color on old copper strongly insinuates cleaning.

If that's not a cleaned coin then I don't know what is.

I would guess that it makes a low VF details. It has been cleaned for sure.
