This ungraded zar 1896 2.5 shilling coin have been listed on another auction site for a while now. I do not have great knowledge about grading a coin but this must be one of the best zar coins I have seen with regards to detail. I have a couple of ms64 ngc graded zar coins that don't come near the details of this coin. Perhaps the big guys can help with regards to a grade or any other insights they might have with regards to this coin. Thanks for all the guys who takes out time to answer questions on the forum. It helps us small time collectors to learn something new each day.

Seen it as well - very very nice coin.

 

The toning bugs me a little - uneven toning, seems artificial to toning to me.

 

Just an opinion however.

Hi, the coin has MS detail and is well struck. Ask the seller to send you some high resolution pictures under different lighting conditions and post them here. At this level of detail the coin should have lustre present, but the way the pics were taken it does not show.
