How much would you pay for it? I want to buy, but I don't want to overpay.

Well, PCGS coinfacts lists a straight XF grade at 110.00 estimated retail so for me personally, I would only want to pay in the 50-70 dollar range at most.

The Greysheet lists an XF as $80.
I wouldn't pay more than $40.

BTW I don't see the graffiti.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Depends how bad the coin looks in person. If the coin has good eye appeal and no major distracting marks, I'd pay $60.

Everyone approaches problem coins differently. As a general rule of thumb, half the value of a straight graded example. This will also vary depending on how extreme the damage is. I would steer clear of this one only because I can't even make out the graffiti. Can't make out much from these pics and it may look far worse in hand. Personally, 9.5/10 times I steer clear of graffiti examples.

Besides the description problems on the slab, I don't find this to be an attractive coin at all. I think when it came time to sell, it would not fly off the shelf.
My favorite album!

I'd wait for a problem-free example.

This coin was at auction.

Sold with a price of $ 41. I did not become a winner, after hearing your opinion, I realized that I would wait for a more suitable coin of 1/2 cent

Good idea. You should wait for a coin that gets you excited. No buyer's remorse!
