VG08. Looks a little bit under-graded to me. What do you think?

ANA guidelines for VG8:
Obverse: Entire head is weak, and most hair details and drapery are worn smooth. Date and LIBERTY are weak but visible. Parts of the eye and eyebrow are visible. Stars are outlined, with some tips worn flat.
Reverse: Eagle is boldly outlined with only a few details showing in wings. Clouds, head, and top of shield are smooth. Some letters in legend are very weak; parts of motto are missing.
Edit: I defer to the experts. I'm too high.
O-109s don't have the stem through the claw. It's actually 115--another common DM for the year although the prime state with no obverse die cracks is much less common than the later stages. I don't think it makes Fine and like it as a VG-08 to 10.
My bad. You’re absolutely right. Sorry I was tired and confused the 2. I think almost every 1806 I’ve had was either 109 or 115
It appears marginally as an VG10, based on Obverse Bust lines detail.
It goes with the nature of these early coins. Odd strikes, uneven dies and mounting in the coin press, combined with a lack of protective rims for the design end up with odd, uneven wear.
