These early clad years obviously faced some incredible deterioration of dies, but if the post-mint condition wasn't scathed, would it affect the grade at all?
I want to know this for future reference, but what could a coin like this grade out as?
Thanks.

Coin appears to have been whizzed.

I think it's just a deteriorated die, as mentioned.

No, it's not whizzed. I was the victim of a whizzed 1886-O Morgan purchase so believe me, I know what they look like!

I'm not convinced it's been whizzed. Sure shows evidence of die deterioration--strong example.

Please excuse the flip. A whizzed coin will have luster shooting in all directions, and certainly wouldn't have a cartwheel effect (which is almost impossible for counterfeiters to replicate as well, making fakes easier to spot).
If a coin is altered in any way, it will be easily noticed in the luster first. This piece hasn't been altered.

In addition to what has been said, I wonder what is going on in the hair above the ear. I wish I knew the word to describe it accurately, but is it "speckled"? "flecked", etc. Seems off.

Stay well,
