According to PCGS Photograde, it should be about VG-10.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

ANACS is considered to be the least conservative grading service, after PCGS and NGC. I believe they net graded this coin. The coin has VG details, but has been knocked down to G-4 due to surface problems and porosity.

I feel a bit cheated. redbook says a g4 coin is worth 70$. and a f12 is worth 110$. and i have heard the total opposite for anacs i hear they are the most conservative. know this know i will always go to PCGS. This coin should be at least a VG8-10.

I love to help people learn about the coins they find or collect.
The coin appears to be VG8 and ANACS places net grades on their holders plus why it was net graded, so I don't know why the conservative grade.

The coin isn't net graded - if it was it would say "net" on the holder. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes they don't. I have resubmitted several coins to pcgs w/ success. I sent in a 1914d cent in a pcgs f15 holder and it came back pcgs vf25.

I would never base the "conservativeness" of a grading service on one coin.
