Noticed this one as I was starting to go through
a Whitman 9008. Not evident in these scans but the coin
has some mint luster left especially in the low areas and also looks a lot sharper in detail in hand. Seems to be a weak strike and also kind of busy near the plain (maybe lamination problems ?) as well as pluribus unum (letters are
touching each other more so than what I would believe to be normal. No pro at grading these but checked out some photo grades and it seems to be in the EF range and maybe AU but not positive. I know it is not a biggie but would be nice to get a ballpark if anything on it. I believe this is the type 1 ? Thanks.

Yeah its the Type 1 looks about EF-AU, I don't know about solid AU though cause of the weak strike.

I just noticed that is does look like a D m.m. on the scan
but it is just a P. A shadow I guess. There is a little green
down around that area. VF35/EF40 seems to be it. Will recheck
those photo grade pics. again. Also I did pick up another camera and want to try that out. Coin really jumps out at you in hand. These scans I do never do justice.

EF45 - good horn details, but the Obverse is very weak. Look at Liberty, it's either mushy details or wear marks and I can't tell. Plus the corrosion around the bottom of the Reverse hurts. So I could see this going lower.

I'd go EF on this piece, but a few issues hold it from getting an AU- vedigras (?) on reverse, some darkness on obverse.

Thanks all. I think the EF40 should do it overall.
45 details minus the problem. :)Martian slobber. Weak strike is a definate on this one as I also read that many this year were as such. My eye caught that Liberty right away but then
with the remaining luster etc (in hand) had to attribute it to the strike. Not much of a diff. in premium anyway from VF35
to EF45. I think a very fair solid $15.00 coin.
That will be it then when I put it up on the auction forum.
Once again thanks for your help.
