I think i've cherrypicked a nice 1900-O VAM-29a.
I don't already have the coin in hand but I would like some confirmation if i'm right with attribution and i wish i'm not confusing it with VAM-35 but i don't see any clash signs and die break is quite bold to be a VAM-35.

What do you think about the grade of this coin??

Definitely a 29a. I would say XF 40-45. Nice pick!

One thing that can make it easier to tell the VAM 29A from the VAM 35 is that the 29A is usually circulated while the 35 is usually mint state.

This is a nice pick of a top 100 coin in a high grade not usually seen in the wild. The easy way to attribute is that the neck points to the denticle where the VAM-29A die break originates. On the VAM-35, its further left.

Now, find a VAM-29 in any grade. That's the hard one.
