It is essential that you must learn to grade for yourself, even if you get it wrong occasionally.
How to learn?
That is where the CCF comes in, with threads such as :-
"You vs the grader", or "Please grade my coin"

If you don't agree with Coinfrog, with example pictured, it's time to learn!

The rims, letters, and date look okay for the grade, but there's obviously a lot of central weakness. I wonder if the graders felt that wasn't from wear. What does the reverse look like?

I no longer have a picture of the reverse. But in my opinion it would not matter how nice the reverse is, I would never call this VF. Here is a similar PCGS graded coin that I agree with grade.

The sharpness of the letters and rim is dramatically different in that G-4 example. I'm guessing they felt the obliteration of detail in the central figure was from a strike through grease. It would be hard for the body and skirt to be worn so much without affecting the date and rims. If the reverse looked VF, that would confirm it. VF-20 might be a little optimistic, but it's not that far off.

So would you pay, say, Fine-15 money for it?

No, if it's from a filled die, the weak details would obviously affect the value, but not the technical grade.

I found the reverse picture. Here it is - sold for $308.20 - Well below greysheet for VF20 but no way I would pay that much.

Thanks for digging the reverse photo up. It looks like a solid F-15 on the reverse. I definitely agree that the loss of detail from a Grease Filled Die on the obverse detracts and reduces value.
