Nice coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I got a nice problem-free 1874. If it were graded I guess it would be somewhere in the VF range. Has even wear on the obverse and reverse from normal circulation. The writing on the edge of the coin is mostly worn away though. Overall I'm happy with my coin.
