Little verdicare should help with the light verdigris. $40 seemed like an ok buy price. G-4 detail or AG-3?

    Probably AG-3. I would have bought that coin.

    The only distracting marks are the scratches, but still a nice coin. I would have bought it too.

    Nice coin! Get rid of that verdigris. I wonder what that bought in its lifetime...

    Pretty decent planchet and color as these dates go, particularly in low grades. A nice pick-up for $40.

    AG, but nice for the grade. Good surfaces. Right on the cusp of G4 but not quite there, I’d say.

    Good surfaces. Too bad about the scratches but I think a little verdicare will resurrect this one before the damage gets worse

    All things being equal (if all coins were graded by the same criteria) it's AG-03. All coins are not graded by the same criteria, as key dates and very old coins get a little leeway. At over 200 years old, full date and VERY nice Liberty, it might squeak G-04.

    I call coins like this “AG3.5” ;)

    Back then skilled workers made about a dollar or so a day (usually 10 or more hours a day) and unskilled less. That's when a cent had some buying power, unlike today.

    A nice problem free early large cent...a very strong Liberty too. I like it very much.
