vG, (British grading).
Can't see clearly enough to make out the die number above the date.

The die number is 44. It is clear in reality but not that clear in the photo.

I would agree with Sel's assessment of grade.
It's worth 10.

Hogarth are you really serious with such a low value. I disagree that it worth 10 pounds. The cheapest on E bay is a much more inferior quality is selling for $39.00 US. Where did you get that assessment ? It seems to be very wrong so please direct me to the site that you use as reference. Below is one Maybe you need another look. New pics added.

Sellers on Ebay can ask any sum they choose, it doesn't mean they'll find a buyer.
Instead of comparing your coin with those currently being offered for sale you need to look at Ebay's list of successful past sales to get a true idea of what people are willing to pay. If you scroll down the page I've pasted you'll see several which were better than yours but which struggled to make much more than 10.

Here are a few other pages plucked at random. Remember, when checking prices for grades, your coin is less than UK 'Fine'.

Looking again, I see using past Ebay sales as an example isn't all that helpful in this case. My advice is stick to using dealer and catalogue guide prices for a realistic estimate of your coin's worth but, remember when doing so, yours only grades VG or near Fine.
For your reference and comparison here is another young head shilling accurately graded as 'near Fine' by London Coin Auctions. The overall condition is a shade better than your coin.
Hope this helps.
