VF30 Attributes..
   A coin with light to moderate wear. All major details will be clear and sharp. Some flattening in higher relief areas will be noted. Coins in this grade will usually show exceptional eye appeal for the amount of wear they exhibit.

obverse - All hair detail will show, but the area just above the ear will show some light flattening. The outline of the ear will be complete, with some light flattening behind the ear. The cheek and jaw will be separated but noted areas of flatness will be present. All major details in the coat will be clear, with flattening showing only in the center of the collar and on the shoulder. All of the bow tie detail will be evident.

reverse - All of the wheat lines will be visible and clear, although not sharp. Some earlier date examples, especially those from branch mints may not have 100% separation of all wheat lines. All wheat grain detail will be complete. Memorial cents will show light areas of flattening on the columns and in the cornice and roof area. The steps will be complete, except the lower center portion on weakly struck examples. The planters will show light weakness but will be complete.
