    This pretty much boils down to how much you discount for being a ground find.

    Not bad for a ground coin.

    Perhaps $2,500 to $3,000?

    Heritage auctioned one that was worse for $1,440. Two others with less rough surfaces brought $5,760 and $7.050.

    The last two were actually the same coin in two different sales and added by Noyes at CC#4 VG10 details net G5. The first one was the AG3 details net BS1.

    So I'm thinking your opinion is a net grade of AG3 to Fr2 with the surfaces. I love my details, but I'm afraid the surfaces are too bad for a decent net grade.

    Thank you very much for your opinion.

    BTW, the Bird specimen in Noyes is a NC-3, so I don't know if this makes 10 or 11 known, depending of what that error was, wrong photo or wrong attribution.

    What a difference a couple of weeks makes. Two weeks ago, this was the most exciting thing in my life.

    After two weeks with the Flu, it's just a piece of copper.

    I think I'm getting over the flu. I'm back to being excited about the 1796 NC-2 again.

    It looks like I may be doing two things I never thought I would do. First is Entombing my 1796 NC-2 and second, putting it on the market.
