"net Very Fine" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 19, 2003, Lot 1082, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...The color, surfaces, and detail all suggest a grade of Extremely Fine, but the dies were out of parallel when this coin was struck, resulting in flat to no details on the top of the obverse and the bottom of the reverse. We're not sure how this figures into the Condition Census, but if the Taylor piece was better than the Pine Tree piece (which was called Condition Census), we'd prefer this one over either of those..."
