    I'm struggling a bit to nail down the Overton on this well worn Half. Maybe your eyes can help me out. Thanks!

    @okbustchaser should be able to help you in regards to nailing down the Overton variety.

    Thanks! I think 103, 108, and 109 were my candidates....

    103.
    On the obverse...
    08 slightly closer than 180 in date...1 missing left base of 1.
    On the reverse...
    E centered under L side of D. On 108 and 109 (both share the reverse die) L side of E lines up with R side of D.

    What would the Cointalkers grade her?
    (The surfaces aren't as bad as the picture looks, but really I'm just interested in the what the wear level looks like.):)
    I'm thinking G-6.

    I think Good works...if you prefer 06 instead of 04 I can accept that.

    G6 seems right.
