I thought other members here might like to see this 1827 penny I bought recently.
It's quite an upgrade on my other example, which grades no more than near fine, so I'm rather pleased with it.
Very rare in this condition and displaying little of the corrosion usually seen on these.

Very nice example of a tough date. I'm looking for one like this.

Congratulations.

Looks like environmental damages to the surfaces?

Indeed, but very little of it compared with most of the 1827 pennies available.
The entire issue was sent to Australia but suffered extensive salt water damage en route. Most of those which survive are to be found with varying degrees of corrosion and in grades around fine.
An example in the condition of the one I've recently acquired can be considered rare.

Yes a very tricky date. Here is my example - less environmental damage but more wear than the OP:

A very acceptable 1827 Paddy, with minimal pitting.
Actually, my OP coin has surfaces which look better in hand too. I took those photos with the penny under my desk lamp and, unfortunately, the resulting images are a little harsh. If it wasn't such a dull, grey, day around here this afternoon I would've tried natural light.
