First of all, I'd like to welcome myself back. I needed to take a break for a while. Haven't posted a topic in forever.
I recently bought this coin with the plans of sending it in for grading to NGC.
Seems like graded ones sell for decent money on the bay and I bought it right. What do you all say about it?
Genuine?
Grade?
Straight/details?

Genuine, VF details, excessive surface hairlines (would be a high VF, nearly EF if not for the details grade, and I know some will argue it up to an EF details, but in my opinion, the obverse it too worn to make it).

I love series where we can follow the age of the ruler.

Agree that this coin looks to have an old cleaning. I am more inclined to high VF, without much in the way of REAL hairlines
And, let's get it over to the grading sub-forum.

$300 should do it for a decent piece

It will definitely be for sale at that time.

Check out the sold listings of graded ones on eBay. Way higher.

@BigSilver Agree, it all depends on the quality. You will definitely not get an MS63 for $300.

@BigSilver Grading is a good idea as there are high quality counterfeits of this type.
