As bosox said .. "They have holdered quite a few damaged coins" ... and this one is just that ... damaged. The dark areas on the Obv are environmental corrosion. And there is a huge hole also on the Obv where there was corrosion that was cleaned off in back of her hair bun. I won't even mention again the dings and scratches. Why ICCS pays little or no attention to the surface, I have no idea. There's much more to a coin than how much actual wear that is there.
