    I am aware that this coin is very rough . Using Red Book i would say the grade G4. What do you think ?

    Well it's corroded so it's not a straight Good. It has the details of a higher grade in places but a lot of heavy pitting and oxidation. I'd greatly prefer to own a clean Good-4 over this one so don't spend a lot of $ for it.

    I would call it vf sharpness but very corroded. If you found it in the ground very cool. I’d prefer one with good surfaces though

    No grade as it's corroded.

    Agreed.
    IMO it would not even get a DETAILS grade.
    It would be body bagged.

    If you're thinking of buying it, don't. If you already own it, get rid of it as soon as you can. In my opinion, it's basically worthless although you might be able to get a few dollars for it on eBay. And don't grade by the Red Book.
