Coin grading

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's a heavily circulated coin. It's also a year that UK collectors snapped up in MS.

I dislike old decimalized pounds because for whatever reason, circulation results in those dings and nicks in addition to wear. A good bit of the detail on the devices is not present; on the obverse Elizabeth II's eye, hair detail, lips and ear are heavily worn and her crown is very indistinct. The reverse is worse, the royal arms are completely unreadable. With pounds, the edge is important as well, the incuse lettering needs to be clearly visible and we can't see that.

I think you'd be incredibly lucky to be in the Fair range on that coin; most likely it would be considered damaged and ungradeable.
