My Favorite Large Cent needs a grade and I need advise.
Here is my favorite Large Cent. I think it is a 76b. I have never graded a coin like this. I would appreciate any help that can be offered.

Very nice coin, it looks like a s76, does it have a plain edge or a lettered edge? I am not very familiar with grading early dates and your coin is going to be subject to some disagreement due to the rim bumps and dings, but I would put it at 35/25.
I would put her at VF-20, and without counting off the rim bumps and other dings. With them would get her down to F-12. But that's just me. It's still a pretty cent. I like it.
Does not have a lettered edge.
