Great find Juan. Congrats !! Thats a nice looking coin and a ++ EF grade. Not many out there.... I have a raw VF I picked up a few months back. I've looked forever for one.

The obverse is cleaned? It doesn't look obvious in the pictures.
When in doubt... don't.

Brushed
When you tilt the coin

Juan... I don't know how you do it, you keep on finding the tough ones. You're especially good with 78. Congratulations.
