While looking through my jars of 1 cents for specific dates I came across this 1955 NSF variety. Would this example grade no more than VG?

Great find, these are tough in any grade it's certainly better than VG and has great eye appeal. Closer to VF-30 and worth grading in my opinion, just need to get a few of those spots off first.

Don't forget that most NSF cents were weakly struck because the relief was too high in the portrait. It's a great coin with no major distractions.

I agree. I think it is VF at least. Very nice coin!
