My friend inherited some coins including this well worn 1795 half dollar and he wants to know a fair value as he wants to sell it.
I know not the best pics but best I have.
Any help would be appreciated.

I'll say PO-01, FR-02 at best, basically a hole-filler.

I agree with PO-01. Well worn, but more or less problem-free. You can check out sold listings on eBay to get an idea of value: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nk...ete=1&_pgn=1

Tell your friend to take care of it! I would recommend getting some Mylar flips or 2x2s to avoid damage.

Best price for that coin is to find a dedicated lowball collector - they are few and far between but if that coin were in a TPG PO01 slab it would sell at auction for a lot more than as is and easily cover the grading fees.

Risky to try but the reward is there if the coin makes the cut.

$500 retail these days. No serious problems other than wear, and it has a clear date. Some could argue more or less, but it's in the ballpark.

Interesting coin. It looks like an Overton-128 (or what's left of it). The obverse makes Fair-02. The reverse barely makes Poor-01, but some of that may be due to strike quality, as well as wear. Because of the strong date, I'd net it upward to Fair-02. The deliberate scratches (graffiti?) on the obverse may detail the coin. I don't think it snags the coveted lowball grade.

As to price

It's heavily circulated, but it's still marketable. IMHO, you would have a better shot on a bourse floor than eBay. I'd be afraid of this one selling way below value on eBay. It will take the right buyer to bring good value here, and it's a lot easier and less costly to say "no" on a bourse floor than on eBay.
