Welcome to Coins and Canada
With that amount of corrosion, I don't think it would be gradeable.

Wearwise, it looks VF or XF under the corrosion, but it's way too damaged to be worth anything ... less than a buck or they make great golf ball markers. Acetone will remove some of the green, but the damage is done.

Thanks for your input I think it'll just be something to keep around the house kind of need to see something like that just laying on the ground and to think it's 161 years old kind of crazy
