Hello
I would really appreciate some help with this coin
I think it has been cleaned and I would like a hand grading it.
I am thinking VF-20 to VF-40 ?
Not being the greatest at grading but I sure could use some help with the grading and value
Thank you in advance
All the best
Alan

Looks to be harshly cleaned.

For wear, it looks like nice vf-30, maybe XF-40, but it looks to have been cleaned harshly with a Brillo pad. Too bad, a nice coin that an owner ruined.

I agree on VF30 and cleaned harshly with something like an SOS pad, but I still like it!

Its damaged, but its not ruined exactly. Its a pretty rare coin and still has value.

Looks good laid Reverse side up!

That's an XF coin everyday if someone hadn't gone nuts with the cleaning. Still has a nice look overall.

Value is a tricky word, especially on a rare'ish coin.
Most would want a problem free 15 than a destroyed 40 for the same money.
Add in the fact that there are so few NFLD collectors and this one is a really tough sell.
