Looks like it's in fine condition but on the reverse there looks like there's some green PVC damage to the coin.....

I would suggest you give it a soak in acetone and then a rinse with clean acetone to try and get rid of the PVC residue.

Thank you for your opinions. Now I can study the grades and compare and kind of see what I should be looking for.
Shylo, I thought I read that coins should not be cleaned? I'm assuming that your suggestion you would not harm the coin?

Thanks again, everyone!

Shylo, I've just done some quick research on this and see that the PVC has to be taken off in order to preserve the coin. Yikes! So much to learn.

Acetone will not harm your coin...

Soak in acetone, then rinse with clean acetone.

Use only glass (DO NOT USE PLASTICS) to hold the acetone and the coin.
Do it in a well ventilated area with absolutely no source of flame, sparks or ignition switches.
