I'd say VF-30, old cleaning, but straight-graded.

Old cleaning market acceptable. These are very difficult to find with original skin and eye appeal. Nice example. I am at VF35 but a XF 40 would not surprise me.

Brunner & Frost 1875-CC BF-2, Die marriage 1-B.

Nerd warning: Obverse die 1 coins were struck with a 22.1 mm collar, while obverse die 2 coins were struck with a 21,8 mm collar. Nobody knows why.

On the 1875-CC, much of the obverse weakness is strike quality. This is especially true for the shield and LIBERTY. The reverse should be given more weight in grading this date. IMHO, this one just makes EF-40, straight grade.

First that the coin appeared to be problem free. Second the price.

The 1875-CC is strange. There are a lot of them available in lower grades. There are a pretty decent number in higher circulated grades, but many of them look like they were beaten to death.

Talk about a cherry picker's special date, though, both for condition and variety. It's getting tough to find EF-AU coins with relatively clean surfaces. One of the last transactions I did for a client was a high AU with clean fields and devices. That transaction came in at nearly double retail price. In addition, the five known die marriages are also a cherry-picker's special. BF-2 is the most common, but two of the remaining four are much harder to find in higher grades, and two of them are almost impossible to find in any grade.

XF45 all day

Remember folks, you cannot grade these normally, you have to add a grade or 2, just how it is.

I'll clarify my VF35 as a net as well. Technical XF, but surface originality gets a net down in my book. Still higher grade than my F15 example.
