You really don't want my comment on this or my blessings on that V-Nickel that cost you $14 .

NS ,I know you can take hard criticism on all your coins .

I'll say VF-25, perhaps 30.

Coin looks weird. Wear on obverse seems so much greater than the reverse.

The magnification makes it a little fuzzy, but here is what I noticed. The "I" is worn. The hairlines above the forehead appear worn. On the reverse, I'm not seeing the kernals of corn (could be the photo). Based on that, I'm going to go with VF20.

Close to EF but no cigar. Looks like there might be some rim damage also. Still a decent coin for plugging the album hole.

The reverse looks xf to me. The obverse doesn't. Hoping it looks better when it gets here.

Perhaps it will. The obverse pic in particular is not very sharp.

VF30. looks like all of the original surfaces have been stripped off. when I see a dull coin like this my first thought is that is was overdipped, however, this can be attributed to bad lighting and photograhpy

Ok you asked for it . That has got to be the most dullest lifeless V-Nickel I have ever seen . But you asked for a grade : Obverse VF-20 Reverse VF-35 (Net 25+).

I think that's the photo lighting. It will most likely look much better with NS's photos when the coin arrives.

with IGE. I'm guessing a modest mid VF but the coin can't be as sad as those photos.

I'm going with "it's the photos" too.
