I'll say VF-30, possibly 35. Hair detail and feathers particularly weak. Very average example of a common coin.

I see a pretty nice coin with very clear detail. VF-35 at the least.

Absolutely, return this if you can. This will never straight-grade.

Scratches were visible in the original pictures. They don't look prominent when not blown up 10x. Love the coin. This one's a keeper.

The arrows-and-rays is a fun design. No opinion on the grade. Would acetone remove the white gunk in the recessed areas of the reverse? (The eagle looks like it is foaming at the mouth. I'm pretty sure birds can't get rabies, though!)
