Although this coin is graded Fair by PCGS, the obverse is a choice G-VG with nice color and surface. The reverse is heavily worn but I can see the wreath and some of the letters. The reverse color and surface nice and there is a small planchet flaw, probably as struck.---LETTERED EDGE, WHICH IS MANY TIMES TOUGHER THAN THE PLAIN EDGE---S-74 is also a better variety than the more commonly seen S-75.---Also, the lettered edge 1795, just as a "redbook type", is easily 10-20 times tougher than the lettered edge 1794, although priced the same.---This coin certainly has a heck of a lot of obverse for a coin only graded fair--It is definitely an overall AG in my opinion.------Please note-it was difficult to take the photos through the slab---all 4 digits of the date are clear---The back of the hair is also all clear----I know you have heard this before, but the coin does look better than the photos.
