This coin has few light rim marks, none major. Wear is consistant with VG-10. Violet irridescence on even brown toning. A few very dark toned spots visible only when viewed straight on. A bit of luster remains. Previously housed in a NGC F-12 holder (I think the PCGS VG-10 is a bit more accurate, perhaps NGC was considering market grading, perfectly understandable).
