ICCS won't mention the green corrosion, but PCGS or NGC may body bag or "detail" it. Wearwise, I'd say AU 50, but net XF-45 due to green.

I will say EF-45 as well, but really needs much stronger light for better pics, with this type of dark brown patina.

Tough one but XF45 I think. May be higher.

I see no wear on this coin but, I haven't got it in hand, low mint state I'll say, maybe MS60..

Nice one, just dark.

After a bath in Leuchtturm Reinigungsbad cleaning bath and a little careful Hawthorn work in the tight area's meaning the numbers, I think the coin looks way better and might make a low MS condition if I sent it in for grading opinions welcome




the die cracks are more visible as well as the triple punched 9 making this an up grade from my EF-45 that I already have

I still see no wear on the obverse. Copper peeps (in particular Uncle Bill)tend to punish brown and downgrade. I am sticking with 63 Brown.

The rim has a few hits, but otherwise looks crisp and clean. I also think this coin is uncirculated.

AU. Just a touch of wear on the bun and a little friction on the inner beads, and the rim is a little rough.
