Can someone explain to me why this coin wouldn't be graded as almost uncirculated? Are points being deducted for the cleaning? Wouldn't the cleaning itself put the coin into the details category, thereby eliminating a number grade altogether?
The hair to the right of the wreath has been worn down so that the individual hairline are no longer visible. Also, the hair to the left of the wreath is no longer sharp. Finally, the braid below the ear is considerably worn.
All of these reasons, IMHO, keep it from being any higher than EF-40.
