with 50 and would offer a 7/10 for eye appeal. These are notorious for inability of a solid strike to fill in both the stars and rays on the reverse and the columns in the shield on the obverse.

Yours has considerably better strike in those two areas. Columns show few flat spots and reverse stars only missing a couple of segmentations. Hence the higher eye appeal.

Less than average die cracks, which I also like.

Seriously well thought out purchase.

with everyone so far.

If you do give it an acetone bath, post a before and after picture. I would like to see how it turns out.
