one more that I could not resist. W/ Rays 1867 is tough enough problem free but with juicy die cracks, it was a no brainier for me to nab this one. A few stains on the reverse that I will see if some restoration will remove but pretty decent for a raw coin imo.

Enjoy!

Great die cracks and breaks! I'd also say VF-25. Some acetone might help with the stains.

Great example! I think they kept that die in service just a wee bit too long lol. VF-25 straight grade.

I like it.
I'll nudge the grade up a bit to VF-30.
And I'm very fond of die cracks.
Also I think I see die clash, most obvious on the reverse.

These coins gave the Mint fits.
They were still having trouble with the hard nickel alloy.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Very nice! Looks like residue from the old folders! If acetone doesn't do the trick, a good soak in xylene definitely will! I'm a VF25 as well.
