Pretty hard to judge eye appeal when there's a spotlight on it. Needs some pics that show the surfaces instead of over lighting it to see every tiny nick.

I personally find it quite appealing. Looks pretty cool in fact.

Before I vote I need to ask a question about the scale of 1 to 10 so I vote accurately.

Is 1 best or is 10 best?

Like, I am #1 because I won the race; I came in 1st place etc.
or
Like, I think my significant other is amazingly attractive or a Perfect 10.

If the higher the number means the more I like the eye appeal what if I like it soo much I want to go to 11?

11 is higher than 10. Turn it up a notch.

6. If toning must be present, I generally prefer it to be consistent. But the halo effect on both sides is kinda cool. All of the details are reasonably present.

One could do better, but if I were tired of looking and had room in the budget, it would fill a hole nicely while waiting for an upgrade.

Which is it? Too dark or too bright?

I'm neutral at 5. Not great eye appeal but not terrible. It's OK.

I like it. Probably it looks much better in hand.

I voted 8.

Maybe it's my device but it looks like it would have a bunch of hairlines. Again that's based on the pics and not an in hand assessment. However, the appeal just isn't there for me and this date is common enough that I think you can do better.

I'm guessing he was commenting on the coin itself. The picture itself is WAY over-lit like they generally do. The trueview is much more pleasing

I don't like it. Its a common date and its been cleaned. The original color is around the figure and the stars. it was once deemed too dark by someone and now its just a cleaned coin.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

It is one I would like if the price were right, but probably not the one I would choose when it was among other options in the same price point.
