This coin is in an ICG slab.
can you guess what grade they gave it?
AND, how would you grade it? It might not be easy...
what comments would you have? it looks like there are numerous interesting DD's on both sides. MD? or not
Especially the G with a serif on the left side, top, and bottom?
thank you for all your input.

EF+, maybe AU, but environmental damage making it a "details" coin.

I don't know or care what grade ICG gave it.
They had the advantage of examining the coin in hand.
For me it looks AU Details, the verdigris is no longer an attractive patina, it's corrosion.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

I have to agree with the AU - Details assessment.

There's hardly any wear but this one wasn't kept properly and the elements have hurt it. No amount of cleaning will hide the corroded spots. Its too bad with the nicely doubled letters (G/G), etc.
