Coin seems to have a lot going on with it.
Obv. rim cud, clash around neck/throat area and under hair ribbon as well as above date just below neckline, rev. die cracks etc.
Reverse wreath seems to photograde @ EF but the numerals do not match that. Obv. seems much better than F15 but not
VF30. These images are scans and are showing red like specks
for some reason that are not even showing up much on the coin. Just some tiny specks of darker dirt etc. Strange coin. Thanks.

with die cracks and rim cud it's probably genuine
however surface looks like it was sandblasted and corroded
NET GRADE genuine with environmental damage

I just posted a coin with some of the same problems last night. The loss of detail on both the obverse and reverse along with the look of the surface could be the result of the clash. I'm not sure about the spots. I'd love to see the coin in person.

The clash on the coin I posted covers both sides and caused the reverse die to shatter. Take a look at my post and see what you think. http://goccf.com/t/91238 I know it's hard to see on the photos I have, but you can see the shadow of the date on the reverse, just like you can see the shadow of the ribbon on the obverse.

Just noticed the rev. clash. All over the place.
Sandblasted ? That's a new one :)
Doubt that there would be much of a coin left if that was done. Some of the specks came off when gently wiped. But there is some porosity visible. I forgot that this was nickel.
Pretty common look.
Detail net grade of what ? In between F15 and VF30 ? or for the reverse VF30 to EF40 ?

I would say it has XF detail with a weak strike in certain areas and some surface issues.

I may be reading more into this than there is.

Yes, obv. cud on rim @ 7:00 o'clock, Clashes pretty obvious on both obv. and rev. Obv. by throat, under neckline, below hair ribbon and down to right of hair locks. Rev., clash to left of 1st 1 and then to the right of the 3rd 1, 2 ea. die cracks running into denticles. Close to 3 and then 6 o'clock.
