4 - VF (Very Fine) - very good preservation (coins that were in circulation, have scuffs and minor mechanical damage);

5 - F (Fine) - good preservation (with mechanical damage, but well-viewed drawings and inscriptions);

6 - VG (Very Good) - satisfactory preservation (significant wear, mechanical damage, safety of the pattern is about 25%);

7 - G (Good) - weak state (the largest details of the design of the coin are distinguishable);
