Both are pretty. The second graded lower than the first. Which one do you prefer? Looking to offload the one I dont use for my set.

The second all day long without hesitation! Perfect example that goes to show that the best selections are NOT the coins in the highest grades.
Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

I'd keep the 2nd one, just based on eye appeal.

I would keep the second one. More colorful and even toning.

For the first coin, you have to fight the toning to find the obverse figure. In the second coin, the toning presents the figure. #2 is pleasant for the viewer. #1 is a task for the viewer.

Thanks for all the reassuring comments! I was surprised to find the second graded lower than the first but I agree the eye appeal is smoother

The second one. The top one isn't attractive imo.
