    Having seen a similar one from NGC, I would guess they could have done a MS61-63. Let me know via PM what it is?

    BTW It does not mean that I agree with the grade - I'm just comparing to what I have seen.

      There is no way this coin would grade MS. At best it is probably AU55. Thats just my opinion but I am curios to know what the powers to be have graded it.

        I can't get my camera at the right angle to photograph the reeding, but what I can tell you is that it is worn almost completely flat.

          Hi

          I would grade it a AU53, but knowing NGC I would say they graded this coin MS63.

            Because I had in my hands a similar one recently, I am willing to bet money here - personally, I am not sure that I would even go AU.

              Hi. My guess would be max AU53. Strange that there wear is more apparent on the reverse than obverse. Normally other way around.

              Regards

                It was graded probably MS 63. BUT my score 45/70 i.e XF 45

                  A coin that should not even grade in my opinion "XF Details" Scrathed

                    One thing... and one thing only

                    There is only one thing a coin that looks like that should be used for and that is for buying groceries - like a half loaf of bread... :p

                    Maybe NGC should come up with a grading called "Totally circulated"

                    Am I going to be shot at dawn??

                      Voters: 10. You may not vote on this poll

                      What does "You may not vote on this poll" mean - how does anyone vote then?

                          Hi

                          According to the grades given on the poll the closest possible correct grade will be AU53 (some bag marks, some scratches, some lustre)

                          Please.....please.....just please don't tell me NGC graded this coin MS67 :o

                          Regards

                            Just so that I know... what will an AU53 actually be worth?
