Would you be able to take pictures with all the details visible. I cannot see the areas where the flash light is shining. Can you try taking pictures in a bright room without your phone's flash light? That would help a lot. Thanks.

Agree, too much flashback.

Looks to have some signs of light circulation.

Sorry for the delay. Is the color red?

Given the photos posted, I'm thinking higher end AU. Pics don't seen to show an accurate color--perhaps a white balance issue.

Difficult from photos, but I'll say AU-58.

AU58

first set of photos too much light but looks RD
second set of photos pretty much same issue but looks BN

doesn't really matter as the coin has a value of 1C

tips to try to get a better photo

1. turn off flash
2. place coin on flat surface with indirect natural light. maybe a window sill in a cloudy day
3. move phone about 3in from coin
4. zoom in using your fingers until the coin comes into focus
5. hold phone steady. if you cant then place something on either side of the coin at that distance and lay phone on top. this will hold it steady and allow you to zoom and take the photo without any blurring

From what I can tell from these photos, MS-63RD.

I say AU-55 RB.
Some slight corrosion on the obverse.
Value: 1 cent.
