VF-20, maybe 30 and cleaned at some time, since there's no dirt or grime.

I don't know anything about these but is what's going on under TOKEN? Is it damage and wear? Also on the obverse near the N in bank? The rims also seem a little roughed up. That said it's older then anything I own lol. I'll have too look these up. Probably should have before this reply as idk grading for these.

Edit: after a quick search I'd say vf20 tops but details grade for sure.

The color looks original to me. I grade it VF - the man's knee is blending into the horse's body and the crown on the reverse has the middle jewel (cross) worn away. Looks to be Courteau #313.

Oh wrekkdd, I don't understand.
Why answer if you have no idea ?
You do it all the time and make assumptions (usually erroneous).
Why not wait until someone with ACTUAL knowledge replies
so that your lack of it isn't revealed ?

The area you referred to as damaged is part of the design that has been worn down. Geesh.

Ya I realised that after I checked the photo grade comparison j was looking at. As for guessing a grade I have seen people who are versed in a specific series all guess a grade that's 5-10 points different, I have not been to far off on most of my guesses, Its easier to test grading skills when I guess before all the pros on a specific coin chime in. I state I don't know about specific series or don't know it well when I'm guessing as to not confuse the poster with a guess from someone who hasn't tried grading a specific series.
