    I don't think it makes it to EF-40, but it is definitely better than a VF-20.

    I'll split the difference and call it VF-30. A very nice coin.

    It's probably worth somewhere in the $75 region.

    Thanks I paid 50 and was pretty certain it was a good investment, I don’t plan to resale atm, but good to know I’m not upside down

    Also her chest plate or chain meal or whatever is visible on coin it’s just hard to get a good pic in a vehicle lol

    I always undergrade these coins. It looks like a VF-30 to me too, unless they get mean and called it "cleaned." The Grey Sheet says $50 to VF-20 and $80 for EF.

    The pics are a little out of focus, but they're good enough. If you get a chance to take better pics, go ahead and post them to this thread. The chain mail is clearly visible in your pics, which is why a VF-30 was my grade.

    I really don't see any evidence of cleaning in these pics.... but anything is possible.

    Sometimes they don’t like the white color. Shades of grey make them happier.

    VF35 i think, the obverse is stronger than the reverse, and that costs you on the grading usually, I'd say the obverse is at least an extra fine 40, but I don't think it would grade that high. Nice coin! I love the SLQs. Here's the current occupant of that spot in my top set, they're mint pals, from back in the WW1 day! IMG_4376 (2).JPG IMG_4378 (2).JPG
