Picked this up for $93. I see the marks to the right of the 6 so I think it is Cohen 1. Let me know if you disagree. Thoughts on grade and problems? Thanks!

Nice pickup for the price. Looks like the C-1 variety. Picture a bit dark but looks like an EF40 to me.

Agree EF-40 but don't care for the dark color. Looks practically black in these pics, which suggests some sort of ED issue.

EF-40. I agree with Frog. Usually copper this dark has some surface ED issues.

This one came in. The coin's color is more like the original pics and pretty dark. These pics are under a strong incandescent light to get a better sense of the surfaces. Thoughts? Thanks!

No evidence of the usual surface oxidation that would suggest a "details" coin, so I guess it just comes down to personal preference. For me, it is far too dark.

Scratches around " Half Cent"? XF-40 otherwise.
