    It has enough luster for an AU grade IMO, but the obv wear leads me to say XF45.

    Recent auction records would give it ~$900 if you could get it to grade that in plastic.

    I'll jump in at AU-50 and add a + darn nice coin and your lucky to have it!!! Envious $900 is in the wheel house (all u can get) not every day they come by
    I'm more on left wheat straw on reverse than beard and hair quite normal?

    The wear on the hair and beard is significant enough to place it EF-40 to EF-35, IMO. Value ~ $1000+

    Wow Top!! Sweet score. I am in at $900.00..... However in order to get that kind of cabbage you will need have that beauty entombed in a TPG slab. Folks in the know don’t want to pay that kind of money for high profile pieces that are not verified.

    I’m in at EF40. That’s one slugger of a coin!

    I think Eddie has it nailed at EF40. It's a coin that's been around the block, but has not ventured much further. Beautiful au naturel cent.

    I'd like to say something unique, but I have to camp out in the EF-40 tent. High details show wear, on a beautiful coin.

    That's one special lady you've got there. Don't trade her in. Happy anniversary.

    As is, raw, I'd say $800. Get it attributed and slabbed and I think you can see $1,000-$1,100.

    That is a strong coin. Looks a lot better than many non-MS slabbed ones I’ve looked at.

    A present of this magnitude is valued at : The Love and thought put into this great marital feat is amazing and in my opinion PRICELESS in my Book .
    Forty -five years is truly amazing . Congrats !!

    I have been looking for one at a good price for awhile and have viewed many in recent months. I would call it XF40 imo

    Thanks for all of the replies. The dealer I bought it from gave it a grade of AU!! Just wanted to see how far off he was!!!

    But did he charge you AU money?

    Yes he did but with a small discount. Still probably paid a little too much but it's mine and I'm happy with it. Never thought I would ever have one. Guess that's all that really matters!
