This is not a simple answer. The reverse has more wear than the obverse.


On the reverse, the wear on the jewels on the crown above "50" and on the knot of the ribbon below 1910 can't make this a F-12. This is better than VG-8 so I say the reverse is a VG-10.

On the obverse, jewels of the crown are complete and have some wear. We can see pearls above the middle cross and they are touching each other. There is too much wear on the cross and on both "fleur de lys" to be a VF-30 so I say the obverse is a VF-20.

To answer your question, I would give a grade F-12 at best.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
