I'll say VF-20, not a fan either I'm afraid.

When did the grading forum become a fan club?

At $7, I'll be the fan club. VF-20.

Strong strike. Check.
Matching die state. Check. (Close, anyway: EMDS obverse, EDS reverse)
Minimal die polishing. Check.
Collectible grade. Check.

Here are the concerns that exist, and all look minor for the grade:
There could be some surface issues along the first feather.
The Machine Doubling on the obverse is distracting.
The possible corrosion spot next to the buffalo's beard needs to be checked.
There is a minor scratch on the buffalo's belly and another scratch (or minor lamination?) below it.

The surface crud looks generic, and probably would come off with an acetone swim. Frankly, I'd leave it original. The fields are darned nice for a VF buff.

At $7? Yep! Good snag.

Nice strong strike. Good buy at $7 IMO.

Not bad for 7 bucks.
I'd say F15, the spot of corrosion on the buffalo neck/beard is a bit concerning.
