Details look like a super high EF(40) or an EF(45) to me. It is difficult to see the extent of cleaning from these photos, but either way, super expensive coin! There are probably only two or three dozen in this grade (as a straight grade) or higher. right?

Beautiful piece!! There may be an old wipe on the central devices of the coin. Fabulous strike, especially the reverse. Adjustment marks are present on the obverse. I don't see much of any luster remaining, but it could be the lighting. A choice VF-30.


Side note: GERMANICVS, I sent you an email a couple of days ago. Haven't heard a response, so not sure if you received it.

Thank you all for your grading opinions and comments.

@jacrispies, I have checked my mail account and did not see a mail from you. Very strange. Could you perhaps try again?

VF-XF, can't make up my mind so I'll say VF38. Very nice example!

XF-40 or a tad higher, with a possible old cleaning most noticeable on the reverse. Strike seems better than average and overall eye appeal is very nice.

Another outstanding coin from the Germanicvs collection! &

I think this is a XF-45. The reverse to me is AU and a very nice strike for the time period.
