I have provided 2 pics of the obverse. The first has less glare. The second shows the scratch on the cheek that may've dissuaded me from the purchase if the seller had clearer pic (I paid ~28 USD). I also think it may've been cleaned. It would be nice to get grades from both systems. Most auction prices I see are Sheldon, so it gives me a frame of reference. Thanks

It's an XF-40 looking grade to me, but not sure if it would go details designation.

Split grade:-
gFine (obv), all of the shape of the detail is there. Six pearls only in the crown band.
VG (rev). obvious worn flat areas.

I am happiest with using Sheldon on US coins only.

I'll say VF-35 (Sheldon).

Adjectival grade is gVF.
EF40 at PCGS if its original.

I agree split grade.

KGV - definitive VF pattern wear - maybe a smidge below - aVF
Obverse - Yes theres a bit more wear there, but the onverses had higher relief and were more convex than reverses - down to Fine+

Suspect its cleaned, no coin below VF/gVF should have lustre.

Overall GoodFine Details - not a bad piece and better than my 1920 shilling!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
