With the in-hand photos, I still see the obverse as VF-35. I now see the reverse on the VF-30/VF-35 bubble. I don't see anything that would detail or eye appeal drop-grade at VF, although the scratches east of the cap and on the throat could be eye appeal issues on a higher grade coin. I now have to net it as probable VF-35, rather than my original rock solid VF-35.
Still a darned nice example of a brutal VAM. You did well, my friend. That's a VAM I've never landed.
