This is a real beat up IH but I'm wondering what the board thinks of its authenticity.

Thanks.

You sure it's not an 1875?
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Whatever it is I can't understand the appeal for any reason at (virtually) any price.

I question the last digit too. Seems more five-like, at least at the top.

Pretty hard to determine authenticity with a coin so beat up and damaged as this one is .

In that condition does it really matter?
Pretty hard to tell if it is or not.
Also it is a more common 1875, not an 1876

Thanks for the feedback. Photo, along with the coin is poor, it's actually an 1877.

Looks like a shallow N reverse, a key diagnostic of an 1877.

Hmm, that does not look like an 1877 at all . 1875 is more like it .
