From among some really worn older British coins, I plucked this one out today. I realize that these are undoubtedly quite common in the U.K. but on this side of the pond you generally don't see too many. I also acknowledge that value for these is almost negligible in any condition short of XF. That all said, your thoughts as to grade (on the Sheldon scale)? It's a bit grungy, but I'm nevertheless presenting it in its "as found" state.

I am really not very good at applying Sheldon grading to British coins. British grading to other than U.S. coins makes far more sense to my eye.
Being Australian, I have a quite extensive collection of British coins in all metals, mainly because British coins are part of early Australian coin Heritage.

However, I only use Sheldon grading for U.S. coins, here in the CCF.

So nevertheless, as asked for, here goes:
VG-10.

1827 British pure copper penny is easier to find in Australia, than the U.K.
Why?
They were all issued into circulation in Australia.
